The Value Engineering (VE) practitioner’s goal should be to best take care of his CUSTOMER via finding ‘D’ – the ‘diamond in the rough’ better solution for a given project or process. This can be accomplished by optimal execution of the VE Job Plan. To that end the objective of this course/book is to help improve the VE professional’s skills via the sharing of the author’s experience and input from course participants.
This workshop addresses functionality and 100 issues associated with the Pre-Workshop, six-phase VE Job Plan and Post-Workshop activities as well as various select ‘odds and ends’. The book presents the subject matter training but is also good as an independent, stand-alone learning document.
If you’re looking for the latest gee-wiz technologies, etc., there will be some of that. The primary focus of this course, however, is on reiterating what VE should be, identifying issues and offering advice on how to improve preparing for, conducting and documenting VE workshops. The book/workshop is aimed at the experienced VE practitioner but should also be helpful for those new to the profession. VE program managers may also benefit from this course via gaining insight to what their VE practitioners should be doing for them.
