Value Engineering by Birbal

  1. 1. Welcome to the court of Emperor Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions 1 © Satyam 2009 1
  2. 2. The raw material Noble men! There price is shooting up. is a very I want to handle The material cost of important matter this situation a sword has gone up before the court without by Rs.10 . And …. today. increasing the We are adding 50,000 soldiers to taxes. Please our army this year. give your valuable suggestions as to how we should face this situation.

  3. 3. Why everyone’s Your Majesty, I quiet? have six ideas Birbal! I am which can reduce surprised that you the cost of a too have become sword by atleast silent!! Rs.20 without Brilliant!. compromising the Tell us those functional ?? ideas. !! requirements. !? Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions © Satyam 2009 3
  4. 4. Part Count Reduction Presently, the hilt has 7 parts. The proposed design will have 4 . Existing Design New Idea 7 parts 4 parts Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions © Satyam 2009 4
  5. 5. Part Commonisatio n For the new hilt, instead of designing exclusive rivets, we can use the rivets of daggers. x Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions © Satyam 2009 5
  6. 6. Benchmarking When the Shah of Persia was our Guest last month , I observed that the hilt in his sword does not have a curved portion. We can design similar hilts for our experienced soldiers. Existing Design New Idea Curved portion Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions © Satyam 2009 6
  7. 7. Alternate The sheath Material which houses the blade is made of copper now. We can switch over to Alloy steel which is cheaper. Copper Steel Sheath Blade Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions © Satyam 2009 7
  8. 8. Weight Since alloy steel is Reduction stronger than copper, we can reduce the thickness by 0.5 mm which will save material 2 mm 1.5 mm Sheath Blade Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions © Satyam 2009 8
  9. 9. Yield The curved Improvement blade design is yielding only 2 pieces per die. If a straight blade is designed, we can extract 3 pieces per die. 2 Blades 3 Blades Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions © Satyam 2009 9
  10. 10. There is an advantage also. I do not have to Saheb, there is no increase the tax. doubt that the present sword designed by you for Your majesty. The my Grandfather’s present design is army is superior. being used since the However, let us test time of Babur this new design in without any failure. our barracks.If they We should not risk any pass the tests, we design change. will deploy them in If the ideas pass the battle field. the test, we can save atleast Rs. Ten Lakhs this year, thus serving the purpose of cost reduction. Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions © Satyam 2009 10
  11. 11. Yes, your Majesty. With the help of Functional Analysis Birbal! I wonder System Technique(FAST) any body how you developed can generate such ideas. FAST is a these ideas! Is powerful tool used in Value there a systematic Engineering (VE) which is an way by which extremely effective system to others can also be improve products and services for trained to generate cost and productivity improvement. such ideas. If six ideas for the sword itself can save Rs. Ten lakhs , imagine how much money we can save on other weapons like spears, arrows and cannons etc. Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions © Satyam 2009 11
  12. 12. Birbal! There are four divisions in my army – Infantry, Cavalry,Artillery and Elephant brigade. I want you to teach the engineers in each of these divisions the application of Value Engineering (VE), especially the Functional Analysis System Yes, your Technique(FAST). Each division should Majesty. release Armoury Change Requests (ACRs) for the worth of Rs.25 lakh. Satyam | Integrated Engineering Solutions © Satyam 2009 12
