The key topics of value engineering are profitability, improvement for your business and affordability for your customer.
To reach these goals it is crucial to understand what drives both value and cost. This means translating your customer requirements into value/cost optimized solutions and speeding up your development process. The value-engineering way of working is a valuable add-on to system architecting and systems engineering.
This course is essential for those who work in multi-disciplinary product design teams that aim to launch winning products to the market in a timely manner and improve profitability of existing products.
We offer value engineering courses via open enrollment. In-company trainings are also available upon request, for instance, to kick-off new product design teams. Example cases used in the training are designed to be both fun and inspiring.
As an icebreaker, we have participants jump right into a Lego redesign case. With this, course-goers immediately get to experience a large part of the normal development process in a fun new way. Exercises this this aim to shine a light on the methods that will give you deeper insight into the buying behavior of the customer, understanding function, optimizing manufacturability and quality, as well as working with suppliers and more.
We also encourage participants to bring your own case. This practical information will be used as an example and greatly increases the learning experience because it appeals to people’s real-life experiences.
