ESTABLISHING A SELECTION FRAMEWORK FOR A LEAN AND VALUE ENGINEERING HYBRID METHODOLOGY

Nosipho Philisiwe Gumede, Teresa Hattingh

Abstract


The evolution of continuous improvement methodologies is evident in the formalisation of activities, their spread across disciplines, and the formation of hybrid methodologies. This study focuses on hybrid methodology formation, and specifically on lean and value engineering. It is proposed that hybrid methodologies be implemented using interchangeable use, concurrent use, and integrated use models; however, the literature does not provide distinct model definitions nor a formal framework to guide model selection. This study uses a systematic literature review to establish a model selection framework based on distinct model definitions. The aim of this framework is to support implementation and to create a standardised platform for future development, ultimately leading to improved and more sustainable success in implementation.
