White Paper

1 Projects Completed

Andrew has a background in Value Engineering. Value Engineering is a systematic and creative effort in an organization to learn about how an engineered product or technique is designed or created for the purpose of pulling out unnecessary cost. The goal is to identify cost savings whether they be in material reduction, material replacement or perhaps removing steps in the process that reduce man-hours and therefore costs of production. Federal contracts issued to industry often have Value Engineering clauses embedded. These clauses suggest sharing in cost reduction by both the contractor and the government. These clauses are very generous to the contractor, often providing 75 percent, even 100 percent of the cost savings to the contractor. The government will benefit by reduced future costs.

The field of engineering types is vast. Value engineering is particularly important in the military-industrial world. This field enables system users to propose and negotiate smart changes to the way something works or is done in order to save time and money
