Seeking the optimum balance between cost, quality and time requirements is essential in managing a project. Cost engineering is the engineering practice devoted to the management of project cost, involving estimating, cost control, cost forecasting, investment appraisal and risk analysis. It is to have accurate cost
estimates and schedules and to avoid cost overruns and schedule slips, act as supporting assessment in decision making. Earned Value Management is important to provide accurate forecasts of project performance problems which is an important
