Value Engineering and Management ( VE & VM)

Course ID:               GIVE0510
Course Duration:   40 Hours / 35 PDU


Value Engineering (V.E.)is a methodology that is known and accepted in the industrial and engineering sectors . It is an organized process with an impressive history of improving value and quality . The value engineering process identifies opportunities to remove unnecessary costs while assuring that quality , reliability , performance and other critical factors will meat or exceed the customer’s expectations . The improvements of value engineering are the results of recommendations made by multidisciplinary teams representing all parties involved,so V.E. is a rigorous ,systematic effort to improve the value and optimize the life cycle cost of facility.


Value engineering techniques can be used to achieve a number of objectives, which can save money reduce time;and improve quality,reliability,maintainability,and performance and it also make contributions to improve human factors, such as attitudes, creativity and team work, also value engineering extends the use of financial, man power and material resources by eliminating unnecessary or excessive costs without sacrificing quality or performance, and in value engineering decision making can be improved by using the team approach .

Unnecessary costs that lead to poor value are generally caused by one or more of the following factors: Lack of information, lack of ideas, temporary circumstances, honest wrong beliefs,habits and attitudes, change in  requirements, lack of communication and coordinates and out dated standards and specifications.      

By completing this training course, participants will gain the following benefits:
