Constructability analysis is a form of both Value Engineering (VE) and Value Analysis (VA) that focuses mainly on the construction phase.
Constructability decisions are oriented toward:
- Reducing total construction time by creating conditions that maximize the potential for more concurrent (rather than sequential) construction, and minimize rework and wasted time;
- Reducing work-hour requirements by creating conditions that promote better productivity or creating designs that demand less labor;
- Reducing cost of construction (and tools) by reducing requirements for such equipment, creating conditions that promote more efficient use of the equipment, and minimizing the need for high-cost, special purpose equipment;
- Reducing materials costs through more efficient design, use of less costly materials, and creation of conditions that minimize waste;
- Creating the safest work place possible, since safety and work efficiency go hand in hand; and
- Promoting total quality management (TQM).
