Course Description

Value Engineering techniques, which are founded on systematic problem-solving and cost-effective optimisation, have been utilised in industries such as manufacturing and construction. Nonetheless, the agricultural sector represents a prospective application area for these techniques. This sector relies heavily on machinery and equipment to meet the ever-increasing demands of global food production, and obstacles such as rising costs, resource scarcity, and environmental concerns require innovative approaches to optimise agricultural resource allocation and yield increase. This course investigates how value engineering methodologies, such as functional analysis, cost-benefit analysis, and value analysis, can be adapted and utilised effectively to improve the performance, efficacy, and sustainability of agricultural applications.
