Description of Presentation/Content:  It is widely recognized that value management (aka value analysis or value engineering) is a powerful multidisciplinary team method for planning major projects and controlling the expenditure of financial and other resources to achieve a desired return on investment. Functions, costs, and other criteria are analyzed to create a plan to maximize value and minimize the cost of a project selected for study. The value methodology can be applied to develop a plan and realistic budget for a new project, product, or process. It can also be applied to existing projects, products, processes, or facilities that are over budget. Proper application of the value methodology identifies ways to improve value and expedites consensus decisions regarding the most resource-efficient ways to meet customer expectations.
