Budget of network Design

By piyushmittaluts ·
Well I am doing a course in network design. and the assignment need us to design a network for a hospital (this is layer 3 design only not physical). well the design is pretty tough but with in my reach. where I am stuck is the budget allocation. This phase is allocated a budget of $17000.

well how do I put this in picture. its that what i have designed and the number of days it took me or something else. like in software development we have difficulty and man power which derives the cost of the software.

If any Design Engineer goes to a site .. gathers the requirment. how does he proposes the budget to the company for which he is going to design the network. what factors he look in and break up and analyisis of it?

a help in this regard will be highly appreciated.. as i need 2 make a report in which I have to utilize the given funds? how do i do that?

thanx in advance

Not sure I fully understand the question, but here goes:

Work out the right design solution given the requirements from the network; then price it up. If it's too expensive, look at those elements of the design (and/or the requirement!)that are "nice to have" as opposed to "essential" and remove them or reduce the cost of them...

The best thing would be to get some specialist companies in to assist in the design process - get them to help (for free) as they'll want to bid for the supply contract!

Hope this helps,
