VMC customers

VM Coach has helped us so far to systematize our training activity in the Value Analysis and Value Engineering (VA/VE) area. It’s logic and structure, as well as it’s user friendly interface, allow the newcomers to enter the VA/VE activity in an easy and speedy way whilst laying the foundation of the ten steps job plan, getting acquainted with functions and preparing function trees, understanding FAST and many other features that help our newcomers stablish a solid basis on Value Management

The implementation of the Value Management Coach into the Academic Course Value Engineering was an important measure to teach the application of the principles of the Value Methodology. The structured approach of the software helped the students to focus on the principles of Value Management and to improve the knowledge transfer.

Thanks to the systematic approach, Mr. Ninaus provided us during our Value Management / Value Engineering project, we were able to fully achieve and even exceed our project goals of over 30% cost reduction. Without the first-class support of the VMCoach software and the excellent facilitation of Mr. Ninaus, we would not have been able to achieve such success. We are therefore thrilled and will gladly rely on the VMCoach software to support our value engineering projects in the future.

Thanks to the experts of VMN - Valuemanager Ninaus we have implemented our ambitious cost efficiency projects. Using the Value Engineering methodology, we were also able to involve our suppliers more closely and achieved our cost targets in challenging times. We already use the VMCoach software to increase our professionalism and employee involvement.
Task tracking and cost transparency have increased significantly as a result.

In the VMN modules, I was able to learn the basics, methods and potential of value management and deepen my knowledge directly in the seminars using various case studies. The use of VMC, coupled with the expertise of Mr. Ninaus, contributed significantly to conveying the content in a structured and understandable way. The knowledge about value management will definitely help me in my career. I recommend the modules to anyone who wants to increase the customer value of their products.
