  • MII Basic
  • MII Advanced
  • MII Refresher

 

MII Basic

Duration:  4 days   2017 Dates and Registration Form;  

Description:  This course provides cost engineering professionals with instruction in the preparation and execution of computerized cost estimates using the latest MII cost estimating software program.  This course covers the basic computerized aspects of estimating using MII, the electronic Unit Price Cost Book and other supporting databases and tables (i.e. crew, equipment, assemblies, labor, etc.).  The student is required to complete quantity takeoffs and prepare detailed cost estimates, which may require work to be done after regular class hours.  A pretest and posttest will be given.

Objectives:  At the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • Navigate throughout the MII software and libraries
  • Create a project, cost items, crews, labor and equipment
  • Create assemblies Link items
  • Define and apply markups
  • Define and apply contractors
  • Define a new report and change predefined reports

Included with the cost of the class, students are provided with one year of telephone support on MII, along with any updates that are released within that time frame.

MII Advanced

Duration:  4 days   2017 Dates and Registration Form

Description:  This course provides cost engineering professionals with advanced instructions on accessing and utilizing the components of the MII software program not provided in the basic course.  The course provides instruction on the use of parametric worksheets and quantity linking (parametric modeling) for the development budget, as well as, detail cost estimates.  This modeling approach and other estimating techniques are used to develop ENG Form 3086 estimates in the proper electornic format.  Parameter worksheets, quantity linking, and assemblies are also applied to crew productivity analysis for the development of Civil Works (CW) estimates.  The course explores estimate structures development and reporting to accommodate the CW Code of Accounts and the Military Programs and Environmental Work Breakdown Structures (WBS).  Students will work with database functions to create site-specific unit prices, modify equipment costs for project specific circumstances, and adjust crew for overtime and shift differential.

Objective:  At the end of the course students will be able to:

  • Review all the aspect of the basic course
  • Advanced reporting options
  • Linking to folder/detail and Excel
  • Assemblies
  • Cost overrides
  • Translate and reprice
  • Modeling
  • Importing
  • Updating the cost book library

Included with the cost of the class, students are provided with one year of telephone support on MII, along with any updates that are released within that time frame.

MII Refresher

Duration:  2 Days   2017 Dates and Registration Form

Description: This course is for cost engineers that have taken the basic course but need to brush up on the operation and functions of MII. The course is intended to make the user efficient in the operation of the software.
