Table 4-2 is titled "Cost Estimate Classification for Process Industries". Appendix G includes AACE RP 17R-97 "COST ESTIMATE CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM" and its addendum, RP 18R-97 "COST ESTIMATE CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM – AS APPLIED IN ENGINEERING, PROCUREMENT, AND CONSTRUCTION FOR THE PROCESS INDUSTRIES".

Is the intention that the guidance (RE: classification and expected accuracy range) applies to:
 
(1) ONLY PROCESS projects - (note from page G-14: "This addendum specifically does not address cost estimate classification in non-process industries such as commercial building construction, environmental remediation,...") OR
(2) all DOE projects.

If (1), I suggest that RP 56R-08 "COST ESTIMATE CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM – AS APPLIED FOR THE BUILDING AND GENERAL CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRIES" and potentially others should be added.

If (2), I suggest that clarification be made.

I am preparing slides for a presentation to the 2018 NA-APM FPD/PI/CO Training Session in July and this question was raised by one of the reviewers during QA review.
