VALUE ENGINEERING FOR MACHINERY PRODUCTION

Value Engineering and its importance for the machinery industry
WHAT IS VALUE ENGINEERING
DICO GROUP is the preferred partner of industrial manufacturers of packaging machinery for foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, consumer goods, and transport engineering. Here, value is not meant in economic terms, but rather the functional value linked to the machine’s procedures and performance. Indeed, it refers to a particular branch of engineering through which a technician (or a working group) is able to precisely determine the “value” of the machinery and its processes. Without distinction, all our customers have internal engineering departments that use the most up-to-date technologies.
ENGINEERING OF THE VALUE, TODAY AN INDISPENSABLE METHODOLOGY
DICO GROUP, an industrial outsourcing company, is able to support our customers’ engineering departments in implementing value and functions analysis. When it comes to industrialising new designs for special automatic machinery and complex industrial products, we are always at the forefront.
When a Value Engineering assessment is carried out, we always start out by considering the specific needs of the market in order to design the whole industrial production process. This method has evolved significantly over the years: the design process for machinery must determine its efficiency right from the prototype phase.
DICO GROUP – EXPERTS IN IMPROVING THE VALUE OF MACHINERY
Since its founding, DICO GROUP has manufactured mechanical assemblies and automatic packaging machinery, often custom manufactured for our customers. Custom machinery allows our customers to maintain a leading position in the market and to create solutions that are difficult to replicate.
HOW MECHANICAL KNOW-HOW SUPPORTS ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT
Our industrialisation know-how, which we willingly share with our customers, is often the key factor in pre-production, in developing the concept, in the design and the prototyping of machinery. We work actively with our customers’ design departments, providing concrete support in value engineering and all other activities and processes involved through our know-how and experience.
The goal of this close partnership is to identify all the functions of the system which must be related to the costs and price. We contribute proactively to systematically decreasing excessive costs from production or unsustainable processes.
ENGINEERING METHODOLOGY FOR EFFICIENT REDUCTION
The industry of the future is looking towards automatic machines; today, Value Engineering is widely used in the production of mechanical lines and automatic machinery. As a matter of fact, their use allows a reduction of the labour required to run entire production lines. At the same time, higher quality products can be produced in less time and with lower reject rates.
Together, we can improve the intrinsic value linked to the operation and performance of the individual machines. Thus, continuous redesigns and related costs will be avoided. We help designers make improvements that nevertheless retain the machine’s fundamental operation.
This is where DICO GROUP’s experience is fundamental for our customers’ technical departments, supported by Value Engineering, helping the industry of the future take shape.
