Recent Success

SATCOM installation plan exceeds expectations, saves millions

Tobyhanna Army Depot, located in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania, is the Defense Department's largest center for the repair, overhaul and fabrication of a wide variety of electronics systems and components.

Through a creative approach to installing the Army's next generation SATCOM ground terminals, the Tobyhanna team will exceed the depot’s Value Engineering cost avoidance goal by more than 276 percent.

By simplifying the concrete base structure for the antenna system, they will see about $2 million per site or almost $30 million in total savings.

Solutions. Sustainability. Success.

Value and innovation are needed in today’s scarce-money world. To find and take advantage of them, both governments and private industry use a remarkable process known as the Value Methodology. Also known as value engineering, value analysis and value management, the process can optimize projects, processes and product development in significant ways. Through Value Engineering, companies and government agencies regularly decrease costs, increase profits, improve quality and performance and enhance customer satisfaction.

SAVE International® is the premier international society devoted to advancing and promoting the value methodology. SAVE provides its members with education and training, publications, promotional tools, certification, networking and recognition.

"Welcome to the new SAVE website that will help you on your journey to excellence. Value Management is the overarching process that leads us to better value in our products, projects, and processes. It does this through innovation, collaboration, and the change in perspective we can achieve through Function Analysis and FAST visual mapping. It is the answer we need for stalled margins, underperforming and over budget projects. That answer is not to cheapen our products and projects, it is to innovate our way to a new solution. Enjoy your journey. "
