The estimator defines the scope of a project by
specifying the work to be accomplished and the skills
required. To help the estimator in this job, the Navy has
developed Engineered Performance Standards (EPSs).
The EPSs give estimates of the time needed to complete
the particular craft phases of a job. You will find a
complete description of EPSs in the NAVFAC P-700
Since these standards save time and usually
provide more reliable estimates than individual
judgment, the estimators should use them. When an
engineered design is needed, the Engineering Branch
provides it to the estimator. No types of estimates are
used; each conforms to a particular need.
Typically, it is helpful for management to get an
estimate of job costs before assigning a job priority. The
formal planning and estimating process can provide
this, but only at significant expense. Since a ball park
estimate is normally adequate, NAVFAC has
encouraged the use of the scoping estimate-a rough,
quick estimate of costs. The scoping estimate is
particularly useful when you deal with reimbursable
customers. You can inform them of the approximate
job costs and ask if they wish to go on with the work.
Unit Price Standards, NAVFAC P-716.0, should be
used when preparing scoping estimates.
