A VALUE ENGINEERING STUDY OF SNOW AND ICE CONTROL

The purpose of this study was to identify ways of reducing direct and indirect costs. The ultimate results of this effort will be to reduce costs of our $10 million snow and ice control program by $3.3 million. The study method differs from what is generally considered "Value Engineering", in that the scope was much broader and strategies were employed throughout the study to make recommendations acceptable to those responsible for results. Also, it was necessary to zero-in on high pay back areas that would have a high probability of being accepted and implemented. A description of the narrowing process is given in hope that it will be useful when examining the program. The study is prefaced by some background information on how this and other studies are initiated within maintenance operations.
