Master Class: Value Engineering - Methodology, Tools, and Applications (1 PDH)
Abstract: Value Engineering (VE) is a creative, function-oriented, organized, team approach whose objective is to optimize the life cycle cost and performance (quality) of a facility or system. VE leverages the Value Methodology that is a systematic process used by a multidisciplinary team to make good projects better. These steps include information, function analysis, creativity, evaluation, development, and presentation.
This one hour briefing offers an introduction to Value Engineering geared toward professionals in the construction industry that want to more thoroughly understand the VE methodology, its application, and the benefits of its use on military projects.
Participants will become familiar with:
- Benefits of VE applied to their military projects including life cycle cost savings and performance improvements
- VE methodology, when it is applied, and the six phases of the process
- Case study examples that illustrate application of VE
- Next steps in becoming a certified value specialist (CVS)
