This course will demonstrate that everyone can benefit from Value Analysis. The process involves six distinct phases or steps.

  
Target Audience:
Anyone interested in improving value, quality and cost of a project, product or service or organization.
 
Objectives:
After completing this course you will be able to: Define Value Analysis, List and describe the phases of Value Analysis, Identify and describe Value Analysis techniques, List the benefits to project team members and organizations, Develop an action plan to apply principles on the job.

Content:
To successfully deliver a project on time and within budget it is essential to understand how bidders respond to the owner’s intended or unintended risk management strategies. Contractors do not take risks, they price them. This course will help you understand risk management, estimating and allocation, bidding strategies, and the importance of a structured project specific approach to risk management. Individual risks are project specific and reliance on standard contract clauses to transfer risks can have unintended consequences You will learn strategies to manage risks that are difficult to allocate. The course will demonstrate risk management and allocation for common construction risks. Lessons learned will be shared on how contractors interpreted and priced risks from case study results from Design Bid Build, Design Build, CMGC and AFP/P3 project delivery.
 
Target Audience:
Risk allocation occurs explicitly or implicitly in all types of projects from design bid build, CMGC or CMAR, Design Build, AFP/P3, and Alliance contracts. Target audience includes those involved in selecting project delivery methods, developing contract documents, and bidders. Specifically this would Infrastructure Owners and Funding agencies, project managers and others involved in defining project scope and project agreements, and bidders responding to the proposals.
 
Outline of Course:
After completing this course you will have knowledge of: how to define risks, how to identify hidden risk transfer mechanisms, the importance of quantifying Schedule and Cost Risks, how to allocate and manage Risks in infrastructure projects including transportation, transit and facilities, and, how risk affects the selection of the appropriate project delivery method.
