Enumerate the six phases of an effective value engineering (VE) workshop. Importance of VE to the success of many solid waste projects; Aim to maintain or improve functions and quality while reducing cost; Benefits derived by VE participants; Pre-study preparation; Post-study VE procedures; Intensive work session which systematically analyzes a solid waste project for optimization of cost and other components.
