Abstract: This report contains the results of the Value Engineering (VE) Workshop that was performed 13 – 15 September, 2016 at the New Orleans District Office. The USACE sanctioned six-step Value Engineering Job Plan was used to facilitate and document the workshop (see Appendix A – Value Engineering Job Plan and Workshop Agenda). The objective of this workshop was to incorporate VE analysis into the development of the project design to improve performance and/or cost-effectiveness. The subject project was in the planning phase with the objective of determining comparative cost-effectiveness and optimization of incremental channel depths between the current 45 feet down to 50 feet of the Mississippi River from Baton Rouge to the Gulf of Mexico (see project map below). An economic summary of alternatives at the time of this workshop is also shown in the below table. A comprehensive presentation of project description and status at the time of this workshop is shown in Appendix G. The primary VE Team was comprised of subject matter experts from the Memphis and New Orleans Districts. Key members of the project delivery team (PDT) including representatives from the local sponsor and their consultants also participated in the study. A roster of workshop participants can be found as Appendix B. As part of the workshop, the Team identified important project issues and established project performance attributes that were used to measure the viability of un-screened ideas (ref. Appendix C). A function analysis (F.A.S.T.) diagram was developed and is illustrated in Appendix D. ‘Brainstormed’ project improvement ideas were compiled and screened. Appendix E lists all ideas (Speculation List) categorized by their disposition (developed or not developed). In addition to consulting PDT members throughout the workshop, the VE Team referenced a number of current informal project design notes and graphics, meeting minutes and other pertinent documents.
