Application of Value Engineering in Industrial Product Design


Article Preview

High-value products is the goal what to go after for consumer and the designer of industrial product must have a sense of value first. Value engineering is a creative activity which increase product value by optimizing the relationship between the function of product and its’ cost. It is a very effective way that the idea and methods of the value engineering are engaged in the product design, that is a effective measures for improving product value and its innovation design. The core of industrial product design is to carry out the functional and cost analysis of the product design in engineering activities.
