Value Engineering...it decreases costs, increases profits, improves quality and performance, and enhances customer satisfaction on projects, processes and products.
The presentation will focus on the concepts and principles of Value Engineering. VE is a process used to increase the value of projects, process and/or products by increasing performance/worth and recucing the cost to produce it (i.e. Value=Performance/Cost). Its key focus is "funciton," which is expressed in terms of an action verb and a quantifiable noun. For example, the basic function of a roadway is to "support loads." What are the lalternatives to support vehicular loads? Concrete, asphalt, compacted soils, and others. Value Engineering helps determine which is the one that offers the most value (V=PC) to the particular situation. many examples will be used to illustrate the benefits.
