Doing Our Work Better

by Dennis Randolph, (M.ASCE), Managing Director; Calhoun County Road Commission, Calhoun County, MI,


An important skill a new engineer must learn is how to figure out the real issues affecting a project. This skill requires the ability to screen many ideas. Engineers have got this skill if they are successfully applying the ideas they gather to a particular situation. The necessary skills can be used in either formal or informal ways, it depends upon the success of the engineer. However, processes such as Value Engineering and Value Management give a formal way of producing ideas with every project.
