Business Strategies for Electrical Infrastructure Engineering

Book Description

With the principles of business strategies in mind, the analysis of cost containment plans, project risk evaluation, and the wide-range of quality planning techniques is essential for the integration of renewable generation and capital-intense endeavors in the current electrical infrastructure. Business Strategies for Electrical Infrastructure Engineering: Capital Project Implementation brings together research on informed-decision making within the strategic planning sphere of system integration. By highlighting social responsibility and environmental issues, this book is essential for technologically-literate executives, engineers, application analysts and many more interested in high-impact process evaluation.
