What is “Value Engineering”?

Value engineering basically means a systematic and organized approach to provide the necessary functions of a project at the lowest cost.

The concept of value engineering evolved in the 1940s at General Electric, in the midst of World War II. Since there was a shortage of materials and components during the war, GE sought substitutes that reduced costs and offered comparable or improved performance.

Value engineering involves:

  • Identifying the main elements of a product, service, or project.
  • Analyzing the functions of those elements.
  • Developing alternative solutions for delivering those functions.
  • Assessing the alternative solutions.
  • Allocating costs to the alternative solutions.
  • Developing in more detail the alternatives with the highest likelihood of success.

The best results are achieved by a multi-disciplined team with experience and expertise relevant to the project being studied.
