S. Performance Criteria & Measures:

bullet

The Performance Criteria & Measures technique uses project, product, program, or organization specific performance criteria and detailed means of measuring those specific criteria to better evaluate alternative solutions and insure selection of the best performing, best value alternative.

bullet

Performance Criteria & Measures can be invaluable in ensuring that the right problem is being solved and, when used in conjunction with another VIP, in dramatically increasing the implementation of the other VIPís recommendations. This VIP is especially effective within value analysis, value engineering, value management, and risk management, and on its own for strategic decision making.
 

Example Applications:
bullet

Project: Use of performance criteria and measures techniques in Value Engineering study led to significant project performance improvement in safety and operations, obtained full value from freeway improvements by addressing interactions with local roads, and avoided future life cycle maintenance, detour, and road user costs.

bullet

Project: Use of performance criteria and measures techniques in Value Engineering study led to two potential solutions which avoided cost and time implications of contentious property acquisition while reducing capital cost of this bridge replacement project.

bullet

Project: Selection of mode, routing and corridor (horizontal and vertical) alignments for major urban rail project
 

The TEAM FOCUS Group Value and Risk Management approach is an excellent framework for conducting the Performance Criteria & Measures VIP for best results.
