METHOD THREE: 3 DAY FUNCTION ANALYSIS CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT (FACD)
METHOD FOUR: 10 DAY FUNCTION ANALYSIS CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT
The Function Analysis Concept Development (FACD) process is exercised at
the beginning of the Preliminary or Schematic stage of Design. FACD consists of a
series of concentrated on-site work sessions with the A-E and their consultant
engineers, the Station, the Activity, the EFD/A, Public Works, Regulatory Agencies,
and other interested parties under the guidance of an independent professional
CVS facilitator. The process uses Value Engineering methodology to help better
define the project's functional requirements and to provide a better understanding
of those requirements.
188.8.131.52. A-E Scope of Work for Value Engineering Services
The A-E scope of work may be written to require the A-E to provide an independent VE
consultant to participate with the A-E in the design process. The VE consultant's
participation is intended to incorporate the VE's systematic approach of proposing and
analyzing alternative solutions. The VE consultant works with design team members as
well as others who may not be a part of the design team.
3.9.3. VE Reports
A VE report shall be prepared to document all proposals considered. The report shall
include schedule and cost impact information, advantages/disadvantages and justification
for all proposals, as well as the disposition of all VE proposals, including comments and
recommendations incorporated as VE modifications..
FACD study submittals shall consist of:
a. An Executive Summary Report including Project Description, Drawings, Special
Design Features that are unique or which generate higher cost, and an Environmental
b. A Concept Report including data to support the development of the project
scope, layout and special features, Basis of Design, site analysis, diagrams of building
functions, written reports describing site investigations and fact findings, minutes of
meetings and discussions, and Functional Analysis worksheets.
