Course overview

Value engineering is the modification of designs and systems according to value analysis which often also leads to cost reduction.

We offer value engineering courses for open enrollment and, on request, in-company trainings as a kick-off for product design teams.

Those who work in multi-disciplinary product design teams, that aim to timely launch winning products to the market and/or improve profitability of existing products should have a look at this course description.

In the training course the value engineering way-of-working and methods are presented as means to translate customer requirements to solutions that have an optimal Value to Cost ratio for both customer and manufacturer. The method is in this respect a valuable add-on to system architecting and systems engineering.

The training course aims to:

  • Understand the customers’ key requirements that improve value and buying behaviour;
  • Use a step wise approach how to improve on profitability of existing and future products;
  • An overview of the different value engineering tools and when to apply in the design process;
  • Understand value and cost drivers and their relation to your product requirements;
  • Understand where cost originate in the manufacturing & supply process and find strategies to reducing costs;
  • Effectively involve suppliers early in the design process and how to utilise their engineering and/or manufacturing skills.

vIntended for

System architects, lead engineers, marketing professionals, project managers, purchasing people, c.q. multi-disciplinar design teams. Pre-requisite: an open mind for innovative but structured methods to manage requirements towards value and cost reduction/improvements.


The training course focuses on:

  • The Customer: Understanding the target customer and capturing the correct performance level for successful products, for which then the requirements are derived;
  • Development process: A thorough analysis of the required functions and specifications. Using creativity to devise a range of solutions to the complete set of functions and find the most profitable scenario using the right trade-offs and how to optimize new and/or existing designs for manufacturability and supply chain;
  • Early supplier involvement and optimisation of the supply chain for cost and time-to-market.

The examples and workshop parts during this course will be tailored to fit the needs of the course participants.


Presentations, lecture-type parts, workshop-parts and exercises (2 days).

On request available as in-company training as a kick-off for product design teams (duration t.b.d. and includes preparation).


Course participants receive a High Tech Institute certificate for attending this training.
