The sun threw its last blessings down on the many discussions on cost engineering that had taken place at the dinner tables as the first day of the Cost Engineering Event 2009 came to a close. And there was a lot to talk about. Inspiring speakers touched subjects as cost indices and dealing with economic volatility before lunch. After lunch life cycle costing, asset verification and project complexity kept the audience on their toes.

Inspiring speakers were also found in the software sessions where cost engineering data was shown in combination with Cleopatra Enterprise. After lunch the opportunities found in a good use of software were shown by looking at best practices in front-end design and showing how Cleopatra Enterprise is used in various industries. The software day came to a close with a demonstration of the new Cost Manager Express.

We are looking forward to the second day of the Cost Engineering Event 2009 tomorrow. And we hope to see you there.
