Abstract

One of the most important strands of SPRINT (the European Community Strategic PRogramme for INnovation and Technology Transfer) is the identification, development and assessment of best practice in those management techniques which encourage innovation. These include topics such as design, quality, and value analysis (VA), which is the area of this publication. According to the market survey, the present VA market demand in the Community is estimated to be at the most 20,000 assignments per year. The supply market - VA fees of consultancies - is estimated to be approximately 50 million ECU per year. In the Community as a whole the number of equivalent full time VA consultants is estimated to be over 440. Finally, this survey analyses the main obstacles to the development of VA, as well as providing a comprehensive summary and suggestions for further action.
