The various chapters of this book cover the fundamentals (VE job plan, VE engineering principles) of VE, the selection phase (reasons for poor value, search and evaluation for VE study candidates, VE project plan features, selection phase check list), the investigation phase (determining, defining, identifying and classifying functions; the FAST diagram; determination of functional relationship, worth, cost, and value; and analysis of project potential), speculation phase, evaluation phase, development phase, presentation phase, implementation phase, audit phase, and human relations. Examples of VE projects are described.
