Value Engineering is a conscious and explicit set of disciplined processes designed to seek out optimum value for both initial and long term investment. First utilized in the manufacturing industry during World War II, it has been adopted and widely used in the construction industry for many years.
Value Engineering is often mischaracterized as a design peer review or a cost cutting exercise, which it is not. Value Engineering is a creative, organized effort, which analyzes the requirements of a project for the purpose of achieving the essential functions at the lowest total costs (capital, staffing, energy, maintenance) over the life of the project. In a world where there are now more lighting fixture choices than sand in the desert compounded by daily changes in the technology that controls them, Value Engineering plays an even greater role than ever before in the electrical contracting marketplace.
