Extending Applications of Value Engineering Within WSDOT

Within the last few years, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has been active in the field of Value Engineering as applied to activities in state departments of transportation. There has been extensive effort in implementing a Value Engineering program involving training of personnel and actual Value Engineering studies on selected design projects within the Project Development Office of the Highway division of the WSDOT. However, within the other offices of the WSDOT, there has been little or no Value Engineering applications on any specific items, projects or operations under their control. This research study has investigated the feasibility of applying Value Engineering to these other offices. It includes specific work items, projects and operations to be considered as possible areas where Value Engineering can be applied.
