Infastech®’s VA/VE is a cross-functional, highly creative, systematic approach in which cross-disciplined Infastech® engineers interact directly with your team to help you eliminate or prevent unnecessary costs. However, Infastech® VA/VE means much more than cost reduction. Infastech® VA/VE engineers work directly with your team to effect changes that while reducing overall costs will improve the process efficiency and/or product quality. Infastech® offers seven distinct VA/VE programs to help you realize the highest value for your product.
VA/VE = Function ÷ Cost
