Dear sara58sara, I agree with above answers but if you are interested in a specific case, please provide more details and perhaps I could help you (i.e. project characteristics, type of engineering to be done -basic or detailed?, country).
By the way, you may find interesting the following thread:
There are also some books to estimate man hours of certain disciplines like "ESTIMATOR'S PIPING MAN-HOUR MANUAL" or "ESTIMATOR'S ELECTRICAL MAN-HOUR MANUAL".
At the end of the day, the better approach to estimate the engineering work depends on the amount of information you have regarding the job. If you share some information, perhaps I could give you some specific advices.
Regards and good luck.

Depends on scope of work and the phase you are intending to calculate man-hours (i.e. FEED, EPC).

Experience cannot be ignored here and there are other factors e.g. being EPC globally recognised company..you may need to refer company standards from which you are not well familiarized.

There are excel based sheets available and can be used but again one cannot nullify your experience with regard to scope of work and material to be produced.

e.g. I have to prepare Engineering HAZID procedure..I will consider preparation man-hours, comments (if given) by company after review incoporation and then re-issue for approval. approx 18 hrs or less as I am well familiarized with the study methodology and have loads of sample docs prepared during previous projects.

hope this helps!(:

Hi gusgon:- That's more on the project management side!

It is engineering project management. It defines engineering stages, which is the basis for knowing what are you supposed to do, and consequently estimate manpower.
