To quote the manual:

Special Ability: Hurry Production

• You can expend a Great Engineer to create
a sudden burst of production in a
city. The production is immediately
applied to whatever is presently being
built in the city – unit, building or
Wonder. This will usually be enough
production to immediately finish all
but the most massive Wonders, and it
will drastically shorten their
production time.

I had a great engineer during modern times, and using it to help produce the Statue of Liberty (1200 prod needed) yielded 750 production. Letting it help along for a Stock Exchange immediately finished this building (650 prod cost).

I assume that the amount of prod. generated is somehow game-stage related? Are there any known specific rules?

• ### One Solution collect form web for “How high is the production bonus of a great engineer in Civ5?”

The amount of production of a great engineer on normal speed is calculated using the formula

``````300 + 30 * city population
``````

So in a city with a population of 1 the engineer only results in 330 production, in a size 15 it results in 750 production.

For quick speed the formula is:

``````200 + 20 * city population
``````

For epic speed it is:

``````450 + 45 * city population
``````

and for marathon it is:

``````900 + 90 * city population
``````

The amount of hammers does not seem to be influenced by era, map size or difficulty level.

Conclusion:
If you want to hurry late game wonders, build it in a city with a large population.
