Presentation focuses on how two major megaprojects in Montreal were in opposition - a major hospital project, the McGill University Health Centre, and the Turcot Complex Interchange Rehabilitation Project. A one day workshop used FPS to define the project needs and constraints, made the two mega projects, the Turcot Interchange and the MUHC compatible, reduced capital costs, maximize the urban value of more than 100 hectares of prime land and enabled the continuation of Turcot project planning process.
Value Engineering and Transit. Definition of Transit system requirements with Value Engineering. Use of advance Value Engineering technique, Functional Performance Specification, to define transit requirements, transit needs.
Presentation outlines the use of Functional Performance Specifications and House of Quality to define the requirements of the Montreal Transit Society's requirements in the purchase of $1.2 Billion of subway cars. This presentation shows how FPS was built in the project management plan to manage the acquisition of subway cars. It shows the use of FPS, and the links between the user needs as defined through FPS and how to link the FPS to detail engineering systems requirements to enable the agency to manage the project and check that contractors and sub-suppliers are meeting their requirements. Also shows lessons learned in the use of FPS for a key strategic project.
Case study outlines use of Value Analysis and Risk Based Estimating on a road rail grade separation in Windsor Ontario. Presentation shows how a VE study that involved 3 levels of government on a difficult project was planned and facilitated. Project won a Value Engineering award from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.
Presentation demonstrates how Functional Performance Specification was integrated into the VE process to enable the Ontario Ministry of Transportation to examine winter maintenance issues and problems in a particularly difficult location in Northern Ontario. A failure modes and events analysis (FEMA) was incorporated into the VE study job plan to enable the team to identify areas of risk with winter maintenance. The use of VE, FPS and FEMA was shown to be effective in examining complex issues and evaluating complex scenarios.
Multi network tunnels have been analyzed with value analysis in order to compare them to traditional ways of burying public utilities
Value analysis was used to chose and optimize the best scenario for this major intersection in Montreal
This presentation shows how to use the Value Analysis process to identify the needed skills on a VA or VE workshop team.
