Application of Value Engineering on Chassis Component for HCV — A Case Study

Prem Singh and Jagdeep Singh
Abstract—In these days Industries strives hard to meet the requirements of the customers and tries to reduce production cost by developing new alternatives. Value engineering is a scientific tool for reducing the cost while meeting the customer requirement. In the present work, the seven core steps of Value Engineering Job Plan (VEJP) were used to reduce the cost and improve value of a chassis component for a Heavy commercial vehicle (HCV). The study was carried out on ‘H type Shackle of Tata 2416 in medium class manufacturing Industry at Ludhiana. The study revealed the poor value areas, alternatives were developed and evaluated. At the end changes in design were proposed leading to 7.64 % of cost saving and ease of manufacturing also helped yield a fourfold increase in the production.

Index Terms—Value engineering, VEJP, scientific tool, cost reduction, satisfaction.
