Cost estimating and project planning for CAPEX projects hasn’t fundamentally changed in the past 50 years. Yet the track record for on time, on budget completion of these projects has been poor at best. With the advent of AI, that is thankfully changing.

This presentation examines how AI is now being used to proactively guide and validate the entire project planning process. Capturing historical project performance and leveraging that to validate new plans is a huge step forward for the industry as a whole. For the first time in recent history, the computer is now able to provide guidance to the planner, rather than the planner simply using the computer as an input device.

Augmentation rather than replacement is an important AI topic, too. AI is not going to replace human expertise any time soon, but it does assist in capturing that expertise for subsequent re-use.
