Value Analysis and Value Engineering
IndiaCADworks’ value analysis and value engineering services are strategies you can employ to be sure you’re getting the most out of your products and designs while minimizing the costs to do so. These services allow us to help you determine the value of a product (whether through functionality, beauty, or capabilities) as a function of cost, providing the greatest function of a product at the most affordable price.
Through this proven process, outsourcing value engineering services to IndiaCADworks will bring expert teams engaging your product by re-engineering design processes, making possible rapid prototyping, and even optimizing the makeup of various teams involved in the engineering design. Your product will look great and will be optimized for reliability through failure mode and effects analysis, the manufacturing and production process will be fine-tuned and efficient, and our highly skilled and well-trained team of engineers have your back.
Our Value Engineering Expertise
At IndiaCADworks, we provide value engineering services for a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, naval, medical, general appliances, and consumer products. Our areas of expertise include:
- Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA): Identifying and eliminating concerns and flaws early in the development of a process or design is paramount to improving your internal and external customer satisfaction. At IndiaCADworks, we perform root-cause analysis to determine failure modes before they become an issue. Where others fail, we identify and mitigate.
- Design for Assembly (DFA): As your design matures, Design for Assembly becomes increasingly more important. IndiaCADworks considers DFA at all stages of design, ensuring that your product is easy to assemble, contains the minimum number of parts required, and can be produced at minimum cost.
- Design for Manufacturability (DFM): In today’s competitive environment, the time-to-market for your product is critical. Our Design for Manufacturability process ensures that your product will be designed rapidly, with a low-cost, high-quality design that meets the tenets of lean production. We follow DFMA standards so you can be sure your product will not only be well designed but ready for production.
- Design for Reliability (DFR): When designing your product, reliability is your reputation. Put very simply, your design is only as reliable as its weakest component. By performing component by component Design for Reliability, IndiaCADworks ensures your product meets its intended usage life cycle by properly designing and analyzing each component.
- Value Analysis and Value Engineering (VAVE): How much is your product worth? What should it cost? What must it do? IndiaCADworks will guide you through the VAVE process to ensure your design maximizes product value while minimizing cost.
- Rapid Prototyping Having your design drawn out on paper or on a computer screen is one thing but having a real 3D model to touch and hold is another. IndiaCADworks has the capability to prototype your product in a rapid timeframe to give you even more insights into how the design process is going and identify any issues earlier on in the process without wasting money.
Value Engineering Process
The Value Engineering Process takes place at the design stage of a product, and IndiaCADworks will help take your design, innovation, or invention and implement our industry-leading value engineering process to get your product off the ground on the right foot. The value engineering process ICW will engage with you for your product design will include the following steps:
- Background research that allows for accumulation of information and improvement of design assumptions
- Full function analysis to identify the functions a project serves, the value-mismatched functions, and in doing so uncovering the functions on which to focus improvements
- Creative mental activity, the process in which judgment is suspended and all possible solutions are identified to tackle previously identified problems
- Evaluation of the creative ideas that were brainstormed, identifying which are most worthy to solve the product design problem and to do so in a high value (low cost) manner
- The development step then takes the high-quality solutions and refines and improves them through value engineering, clearly explaining all the options and ensuring maximum delivered value
- Presentation is the final step of the value analysis/value engineering process, delivering briefing documents, risk analyses, pros and cons, and more.
