Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Value engineering (VE) is widely used in the transportation industry today. The VE process outlined in this book was developed by Muthiah Kasi and his colleagues at Alfred Benesch & Company over the past 30 years. The techniques are based on work that was created by Larry Miles, Thomas J. Snodgrass, Ted Fowler, Thomas Cook and other eminent value engineers.

This book, focusing on one transportation case study, illustrates the method to create an appropriate way to address transportation needs. It is a guide on how to perform a VE. It includes: Identification of users, owners and stakeholders and their needs, desires and constraints Development of project functions based on the constraints, needs and desires Analysis of the functions and consideration of function cost Identification of value and mismatches Development of creative ideas Creation of alternatives Measurement of alternatives against performance, acceptance and cost Development of leading alternatives Recommendation and presentation of a performed alternative with support documentation
