Value Engineering 2012

Unnecessary costs do exist in both private and public organizations due to so many factors such as lack of information, lack of ideas, temporary circumstance, honest but wrong beliefs, habits and attitudes, changes in owner requirements, lack of communication and coordination, and out dated or unsuitable standards, codes and specifications. These factors are act as roadblocks to getting good value. The best way to overcome these roadblocks is by using the VE/TQM team approach. Individual efforts can be costly and inefficient. Management has learned that by involving more of their organization in the decision making process, significant improvements can be realized. The quality revolution has demonstrated that waste and inefficiency are unacceptable anywhere in the organization. Therefore, managing value and change is necessary to meet this difficult challenge. Many characteristics of unacceptable qualities can be traced back to the approach taken during the design and management process. Application of Value Engineering with the TQM approach will more closely achieve the desired concept as a totally integrated effort toward improving performance of every process at every level.

Value engineering can improve decision-making that leads to optimal expenditure of owner funds while meeting required function and quality level. VE is a methodology that is comprised of many useful techniques that create change on purpose rather than letting change happen accidentally.
