Course description

Value Engineering

Companies around the world are seeking to provide value to their customers. That value is embedded in either the product or service that they deliver, the manner in which they deliver it, and the price that their customers must pay. Value Engineering is a set of disciplines that assign a value, a function and a cost to each element of a product or service and then seeks to optimize the value delivered for the cost that is paid.

The Value Engineering methodology relies heavily on defining and understanding the inherent function of each part of the product or service. The Value Engineering tools and techniques assist the business team to identify, quantify and then improve the value by reducing cost without impacting the function of the product or service.

In this practical two-day program you will learn the six phases of a Value Engineering study. The program is based upon the proven practices of the Society of Value Engineers, SAVE International, and on the experience of the presenter who has led many engineering development efforts which had significant contributions from Value Engineering. The course will discuss the best practices for each of the six phase Value Engineering process and will include workshops where Value Engineering tools and techniques are practiced.
