Value Engineering Analysis
Practical Training for Function Analysis and Cost Effectiveness Evaluation
Value Engineering is a systematic method of value analysis for product functions and system functions. The objective of Value Analysis is to provide product, system and service with the necessary functions to satisfy a demand through a lower cost approach. In other words, value analysis is a disciplined process to assess the value worth of a product’s design, systems function and service design with the objective of satisfying requirements.
The Value Engineering Analysis approach will bring about a methodical and systematic analysis of the existing product part structure to seek lower cost design while maintaining and enhancing the primary functionality.
The Cost Redesign Team needs to be clear about the company’s competitiveness, customer requirements, manufacturing processes and product specifications and service level. It is most effectively applied by marketing, research and development, product engineering, and manufacturing engineering teams to redevelop an existing product or service for lower cost structure. In the case of system design for improving customer services, value analysis will be an indispensable tool to improve service performance.
The methodology can be extended to design system processes to improve system functionality in business processes, corporate system and service transaction processes. In an organization context, value analysis is a common tool that all functions can relate to, namely, to improve added value in functions and reduce the cost of material, production method and the provision of service. Value Engineering Analysis is also an indispensable tool for review of product cost structure.

How Is Training Conducted
Most of the Value Engineering approach is still based heavily on Product Features Activities Comparison Analysis of different competitive products as well as the FAST Diagramming method to scale-value the cost items for analysis. APRC approach has further advanced the Value Engineering know-how discipline by expanding the scope of VE Application to include:
- Useful function & harmful effect mapping
- Identification of technical contradiction of design features
- Formulating design innovation for Value Engineering Analysis
- Systematic way to value engineer machine, tools, object, material & force/field application
- Clarify the often confusing issues of Customer Requirements and Design Feature Requirements
- Expanding on the clarity of FAST diagramming methodology to relate it correctly to the application of function & cost value.
By completing the Value Engineering course conducted by APRC, you will be equipped with the most up-to-date Value Engineering Methodology to systematically apply cost value optimization and design improvement to cost reduction.
