High Value Engineering is not a new concept to the industry. The reality that the best interests of the Industry in achieving sustainability are maybe represented by HVE, perhaps is. We are all compelled to do more with less. High Value Engineering can help, if all stakeholders are aligned with new thinking regarding scalability, expectations, and engage the HVE with an adequate level of integration. This offers a potential of both improved functionality and a tangible reduction in cost. It also allows our customers key resources to focus on strategizing a winning position among their competitors in the market place.
Many Operators have become supply chain driven, due to the devastating decline in commodity prices. The entire supply chain must provide commercially competitive offerings, and utilizing HVE centers such as DAHVE can greatly assist in achieving this. The EPC companies have had their margins ravaged and many smaller, lower-tier companies providing Facilities support to the Industry entities have had their viability marginalized. Increased use and integration of HVE centers is one avenue of opportunity open to EPC companies and smaller Facilities support providers when looking for ways to maintain or reestablish performance to Minimum Acceptable Rates of Return (MARR) levels.
