What is VAVE?

What is VAVE?

VAVE (Value Analysis/Value Engineering) is a method of reducing costs and improving a product by using analysis and adaptation during the product development process and beyond. It does this by analyzing the design and production process as well as the costs and availability of the components and other factors for the finished product.

What is Value Analysis?

Value Analysis (VA) occurs after the launch of a product and the objective is to improve the next generations of the product. The existing product is reviewed and analyzed by a team of engineering experts, with the goal being to improve the product performance. The product is evaluated in a range of areas to identify ways to improve efficiency and cost.

What is Value Engineering?

Value Engineering (VE) is an iterative process focused on reducing costs. Not to be confused with DFM (Design for Manufacturing) that is done before the product is in production, VE examines the existing methods of manufacturing to improve processes by identifying efficiencies without sacrificing quality and throughput.

Benefits of VAVE

VAVE can help companies in a variety of ways. The benefits of a VAVE include:

  • Reducing costs
  • Improving products or services
  • Increasing efficiency
  • Providing value to customers 
  • Increasing revenue and profitability

Reducing costs is a critical aspect of VAVE. It’s a methodology that is valued in many different industries, especially healthcare.
