Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Managing Finances
Abstract: One of the ways an engineering firm can maintain - or increase - profitability is through judicious management of overhead. Yet various industry studies suggest that the typical engineering or service firm devotes little serious attention to its overhead structure. This paper presents a general description of the financial significance of overhead costs to engineering organizations and a case study discussion of how the De Leuw, Cather Organization has approached management of its overhead costs.
