Engineering (VE), Value Management (VM) and Value
Analysis (VA) are terms that refer to function oriented problem-solving techniques
that have been successfully applied by CSI
world-wide to improve
performance, quality, optimize capital and life cycle costs and “add value” to products and services.
Value Engineering is a
rigorous and systematic examination of both products and services to eliminate
“non-value” adding costs through “teamwork.”
The CSI technique utilizes
cross-functional teams in a creative
workshop environment to study such areas as designs, manufacturing processes,
construction and administrative procedures. The CSI
unique problem-solving technique is utilized to analyze product / process designs,
engineering concepts or construction approaches. It is not limited to
the capital cost of the project, but extends to evaluate the overall life
cycle costs as well.
objectives of Value Engineering (VE) activities are to:
and build the most cost effective products and services consistent with required performance, reliability, quality and safety.
Achieve the “best value” at the lowest life-cycle costs.
