Description

The importance of Function Analysis in VA/VE workshops and projects has not to be explained to the VA/VE practitioners: it is clear. Getting rid of focusing on existing solutions of a product or process and focusing on its functions is essential in developing and optimizing products or processes.

Over the 20 years of experience in VA/VE projects and having a deep insight into numerous performed VA/VE studies, the author has recognized that a lot of facilitators only focus on the “as-is” functions and as a consequence only on the “as-is” functional cost. Unfortunately, with this procedure a very valuable part of function analysis is lost. The chance of getting the most optimized result is decreased.

This paper wants to share the experience of using Function Analysis in its full functionality: “as-is” and “should-be”. What are the possibilities to define the “should-be” functional cost and what is the value for the project of having done this exercise?
