Value engineering, also known as value analysis, is a competitiveness enhancing method that focuses on maximizing the value of a product (process, project) by making sure it fulfills the clients’ needs, at the lowest cost possible. The approach is systematic and includes a multi-step job plan, which in turn uses many tools to do product or process analysis. 

The training provides an overview of the whole job plan, including each phase of the job plan and uses a case study approach to assist participants to learn the methodology. The training explains the different uses of the methodology, what possible goals can be achieved, and when value engineering is useful. Finally, the instructor outlines how to implement a value management program in an organization.
