  • Gain fundamental knowledge of Value Engineering and Analysis principles.

  • Understand how Value Engineering enhances project management practices throughout project development.

  • Appreciate the importance of gathering detailed information for developing a comprehensive project scope.

  • Organize relevant cost and project information for key project elements effectively.

  • Incorporate stakeholders' input into project charter and plan development.

  • Evaluate the relationships among cost, value, and function critically to improve overall project value.

Targeted Audience:

  • Project or Program Sponsors.

  • Project Managers.

  • Cost Estimators and Controllers.

  • Engineers.

  • Designers and Project Staff.

  • Anyone Involved in Project Initiation, Engineering Design, and Critical Assessment of Projects.
