Abstract:

The state of the art of value engineering is summarized a value analysis technique is proposed with the following characteristics a quantification of value consistent with established USAF specification of system utilization. b Value parameters which are predictable and measurable. c systematic method of quantitative analysis which permit practical optimization in the least cost sense consistent with system value. d Technique structure which permits design tradeoff of discrete alternatives relating to cost and system value parameters. e Method of cost analysis which permits optimization with respect to total cost and is consistent with both design and operational value parameters. f Method of cost analysis based on difference principles which permits decisions through dominance of one alternative to another. g general method of analysis which permits cost in time and singling out areas significant cost differences between alternatives.
