8. VE METHODOLOGY. The determination of function(s) is a
requisite for all "VE" studies. Accordingly, VE studies shall be
noted that cost reduction actions cannot be labeled "Value
Engineering" unless the action includes identifying the function,
brainstorming to determine what else will do the job, and
selecting the alternative that will perform the required function
at the lowest total cost considering performance, reliability,
quality, and maintainability. True VE Concept shall be followed
in the performance of the study. The key distinguishing features
separating the "VE Job Plan Approach" from the general or normal
design procedures, economic studies and other cost reduction
techniques are functional analysis, use of creativity to develop
multiple alternatives, and the principal of maintaining the
quality needed by the user. The five-phase VE Job Plan is as
Information Phase (for information gathering)
Specification Phase (for brainstorming the generation
Analysis Phase (for the evaluation Of alternatives)
Development Phase (for the development of firm
Presentation Phase (for presentation of recommendation
The results of
VE REPORT AND DOCUMENTATION REQUIREMENTS.
each VE study performed on the project shall be documented as
Brief description of total project and project
requirements with a copy of DD 1391.
Brief summery of VE recommendations
One site plan, floor plan and elevation, on 8-1/2"
x 11" or fold-out
Summary Sheet (only) of 35% cost estimate
VE cost model of project; bar graphs of systems
Each VE recommendation will be described "Before
and After VE" and will be accompanied with a
detailed cost estimate of savings, life cycle cost
analysis, and sketches as necessary.
Complete 5 step job plan (worksheets) of all work
will be submitted as a glossary for reference.
