Cost estimators figure out how much a project or product will cost, helping business owners and managers decide whether to build a structure or manufacture a product. If a business doesn’t think it can make enough money, it will not proceed. Cost estimators also find out which jobs are making a profit. Cost estimators study information on all of the things that can change the cost of a project. This includes supplies, labor, location, and special equipment, like computer hardware and software.
