The shortage of raw materials caused by World War II forced the U.S. civilian industry to seek alternatives. After the war, American industrialists discovered with astonishment that the new materials were cheaper and better than the originals.

The Value Analysis was then created to replace the war in the quest for rationalization. Later used by countries such as Germany and France, it was also one of the levers of the Japanese post-war economic miracle. In this book, Value Analysis transcends the boundaries of producer/consumer relationship to consider the needs of employees and society.

The Holistic Value Analysis combines quality, productivity, safety, environmental protection and human development, and is presented as a decisive factor for success and survival of organizations. The author builds on new concepts on Value Analysis, introduces new techniques and innovatively integrates Value and Risk Analysis.
