We have a new course Value Methodology that is being administered by VMS - Value Management Strategies.


VM CourseThis exciting and innovative course has been designed to provide individuals with a fundamental understanding of Value Methodology, which is more commonly known as Value Engineering. Value Methodology (VM) is a practical body of knowledge that provides a proven means for improving the value of projects, products, and services by focusing on functions and their relationship with cost, performance, time and risk. This course utilizes the latest in internet technology to provide a truly interactive learning experience. Participants will be exposed to the theory, concepts and techniques of VM through narration, animation, quizzes and interactive exercises.

 

At the conclusion of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Accurately use the terminology of VM to describe and define Value Methodology (i.e., Value Engineering), its uses, benefits, and characteristics.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the history, development, and tools of Value Methodology.
  • Explain in detail the key concepts of value, cost, performance, time and risk; identify how these concepts affect projects in their area of expertise; apply techniques to define and improve the value of their project.
  • Develop a thorough understanding of the Value Methodology Job Plan.
  • Use VM’s technical tools and techniques applicable to each of the above stages. These include:
    • Function Analysis and FAST Diagramming
    • Communications and facilitation techniques for multi-disciplinary teams
    • Creativity and evaluation techniques
    • Alternative development and analysis
