Abstract

Value Engineering (VE) is a function-oriented technique that has proven to be an effective management tool for achieving improved design, construction, and cost-effectiveness in various transportation program elements. Value Engineering is one of the most effective techniques known to identify and eliminate unnecessary costs in product design, testing, manufacturing, construction, operations, maintenance, data, procedures and practices. In this study, a questionnaire survey was conducted for Tamilnadu State, India. The questionnaire survey mainly focuses on how effectively value engineering is applied in construction industry and how much the employees are aware of the concept of value engineering and its effectiveness. It is observed that at the initial stage the employees have very good awareness and in due course of project the awareness has gradually reduced. It is concluded that 20 percentage of them are not following specific procedure for implementing value Engineering and remaining 80 percentage following Value Engineering.
