An experienced engineer can quickly browse drawings and calculations and be in a position to judge the adequacy of work performed under his direction. If he has worked on similar projects many times, he may not need more than 5% of total manhours to be satisfied with the end result.


Ah,  is this 5% number the result of your graduate research?   

Cheap graduate student labor is, by the way, what sometimes make it difficult for engineers to get jobs with decent salaries.  Many college professors do "consultancy work".  I wish you luck with getting a job though.
