3. Frontiers of the system Process engineers are familiar with the systemic approach involved in process design. The process to be studied is defined as a system delimited by a frontier composed of all the items and their interconnections. It must be said that the design stage is generally focused on the elements that will be related to process operation and do not take into account the dismantling phase of the process, which may also have a non-negligible impact on economics, environment and society, so that the evaluation of the involved criteria may be misevaluated.
Cost estimation Cost estimation is an important activity in engineering. Engineering companies make tenders or bids based on cost estimates. If they bid too high, they may lose the contract. If they bid too low, they may win but lose money after project completion. Estimate accuracy is therefore important given that the final project cost will only be known after start-up, when all modifications have to reach the specified project performance. Accuracy is generally expressed as a percentage of the project probable final cost.
