ABSTRACT
Problem statement: Each year, a major part of revenues spent on Investing in sector development plans and State infrastructures filled with clear reduce costs and done on time Projects leading to high savings budget plans executive and will be return on Investment. Approach: On transportation projects, Value Engineering (VE) teamwork by involving construction, design and maintenance staff review the construction project features and look for ways to improve quality, control costs and time. Also this study briefly described VE and quality, cost schedule planning, application of VE, cost parameters, relationship of value, function, cost and worth. Results: VE, highway construction was survived and opportunities for better, less expensive means of completing the construction projects were analyzed. The intention is to progress project quality and productivity, foster innovation, optimize design elements, also ensure overall economical costs. Conclusion: This study achieved to the model Value Engineering in Highway Construction (VEHC) which cause decrease time, decrease cost and increase quality in highway it has been.
