Masterclass on Value Engineering to bring attention to cost management

15 August 2016

Salvo Global will hold a masterclass on value engineering entitled Value Engineering for Projects, which is intended particularly for professionals who are responsible for controlling or supporting large and complex projects, services, and systems. The course will run on the following dates and locations:

  • 2nd to 4th November 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • 7th to 9th November 2016 in Makati, Philippines

When a project runs over budget, project managers and engineers need to be prepared to find ways of doing more with less. Clients aren’t looking to simply cut costs; they’re looking for professionals that can deliver a well-balanced project in all aspects – function, performance, quality, safety, and cost. Value Engineering (VE) has proved to be a valuable tool in stretching capital, construction, operation, and maintenance budget to achieve the required goals for reduced costs, both in the public and private sector. Use of VE techniques also typically results in improvements in facility performance, even at these lower costs.

With this in mind, the 3-day masterclass will introduce to delegates VE and the steps required undertaking a VE assignment or formalizing a successful program. The course will cover overall performance issues and the history and basics of the value concept, considerations for starting a VE study, guide to developing a study framework and a firm foundation for undertaking a VE workshop, and guidance on how to develop and sell VE recommendations, along with implementation, and monitoring for sustaining results.
