Seeking to improve the overall value of your solution, Emerson uses value engineering to improve the ratio of function to cost. When value engineering starts early in the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) phase, the automation strategy provides a strong base to start the execute phase — and greatly impacts the success of the project.
Emerson has a proven track record of delivering value to automation projects including technology innovations, global capabilities, successful project execution, and breadth of automation and industry expertise.
Plan Early for Long-term Savings
When included in the FEED phase, value engineering practices can more easily balance technology choices with project needs, lowest installed cost, and project risk. For example, Emerson can provide initial outline valve drawings to support earlier piping design, which in turn can shorten the project schedule. As a result, long-term savings are better ensured.
Assess the Whole Project and the Impact of Choices
Technologies and processes must be evaluated in a larger scope beyond the confines of automation to see how they impact the larger project success. To deliver project success, value engineering drives a holistic assessment of processes, resources, and technology direction (such as wireless choices, globe valves versus rotary valves, and more).
Get an Early Start on Best Practices
Rather than base the current project on the most recently executed project, enable value engineering to integrate into the FEED phase so that the current project can leverage best-in-class practices for implementing technology, assigning people, and fine-tuning processes.
