The U. S. Army Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center
The U. S. Army Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC), is the focal point for research, development, and engineering technology for aviation and missile platforms. And 2014 was AMRDEC’s 29th consecutive year of exceeding its value engineering goals.
While savings are important, more important is the impact these projects have on Soldiers’ lives. Obsolescence mitigation, parts availability, improved functionality, or reduction of maintenance burden, the Soldiers’ lives are much better because of the VE efforts at AMRDEC.
Director James Lackey said. “This is a great example of enabling Lifecycle Affordability and applying engineering/technical ‘smarts’ to make or do things at a lesser cost.”
SAVE International® is the premier international society devoted to the advancement and promotion of value engineering. VE benefits include decreasing costs, increasing profits, improving performance and improving quality.
