Value engineering Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Value engineering (VE) is systematic method to improve the "value" of goods or products and services by using an examination of function. Value, as defined, is the ratio of function to cost. Value can therefore be increased by either improving the function or reducing the cost. It is a primary tenet of value engineering that basic functions be preserved and not be reduced as a consequence of pursuing value improvements.
