FACD - Functional Analysis Concept Development. FACD is a structured
approach to get consensus on an issue. This structured approach is
being used in design to validate project scopes and to develop a
design concept for a project. FACD has also been used on planning
studies, workshops and other activities where good decisions,
consensus and commitment are required for success. The goal of FACD
in design is to reach agreement with the facility operator on the
facility that will provide the necessary functions and that can be
constructed within authorized construction budgets. The process uses
value engineering technology and can involve extended interaction with
the facility operator and project sponsor, but can be as short as a
few hours for smaller projects. The project scope and design concept
jointly developed in the FACD is usually documented in at formal
Partnering Agreement that is signed by participants in the FACD
process to signify their approval and commitment. The Government
often provides a third party team leader to lead the FACD team through
