Value Engineering

Value Engineering

Value Engineering (VE) or Value Management (VM) is a function-oriented, systematic team approach to improve the quality, or ‘value’ of a product/service, to optimize the performance and to reduce Total Life Cycle Cost of a project.

Value of a product or service is defined as the ratio of function to cost. Value engineering, therefore, aims at reducing the costs of a project, while enhancing or preserving the basic functionality.

Value Methodology offers the following benefits:

  • Cost Improvement
  • Performance Improvement
  • Productivity Improvement
  • Quality Improvement
  • Time Saving
