Abstract:

The application of value engineering VE techniques to the innerspring mattress produced several areas in which material, labor and money savings could be accomplished without affecting the function of the item. This report deals with the VE proposal to eliminate handles lifting straps from the type II, size 4 innerspring mattress of Federal Specification V-M-96 Mattresses, Bed, Innerspring. It is hoped that handles can be deleted from all sizes of mattresses covered by V-M-96, as a result of this report.
