VALUE ENGINEERING

is included with Wethered Construction's Preconstruction Services

Lawrence D. Miles’ value analysis procedure begins with four clearly defined terms: life cycle, function, cost, and value.

Life cycle - the anticipated duration for which the item must carry out its purpose.


Function - the successful performance of an item over its life cycle.


Cost - the initial monetary outlay, supplemented by the anticipated funds required for maintenance and repair and any financial effects the item may have on other components.


Value - the relationship between function and cost, expressed as a simple formula (f/c).

value=function/cost

(v=f/c)
