Typical Content of Feasibility Study

Many people visited my blog because they searched about feasibility study. I wrote a bit about the topic years ago. I wrote it when I involved in my second feasibility study project, which is bankable feasibility study for ferronickel smelter.

In this post I want to share you typical content of feasibility study. The content actually may be different from one another, depends on the topic. But, after I involved in two previous feasibility projects and current project, I learnt that there is similarity about the structure of the content.

I hope you find this post is useful.
