Incorporating Value Engineering

While value engineering activities are a part of most product manufacturing organizations, they are generally conducted after the product is released – many times as a reaction to financial or competitive pressures. While any value engineering is good, “after the fact” activities such as these have only a limited scope and require large resources..

Incorporating value engineering from the initial design stages on the other hand can have a much larger scope and require minimal resources.

It is also important to differentiate value engineering from just cost reduction. This webinar will look into the above with some very common examples.

Join the webinar to learn:

  1. What is Value Engineering?
  2. Difference between Value Engineering and Cost Reduction
  3. Typical unnecessary direct and indirect costs built into products
  4. Value Engineering right from the initial design
    1. Materials
    2. Design and other resources
    3. Tooling
    4. Part Processing
  5. Simulation and optimization tools – FEA, Plastic Flow Simulation, DFMPro
  6. Putting it all together
