Value Engineering

Description:

Value Engineering is a technique applied to identifying optimum value solutions during new product development. It is a technique applied to improving existing products, processes or services. The objective is usually to reduce cost, but may equally or simultaneously be to improve performance or quality. It is a conscious and explicit set of disciplined procedures designed to seek out optimum value for both initial and long-term investment.
