I was taking a PDD mock exam with Black Spectacles and for the question " when it is the most efficient to do Value Engineering" I answered during DD.
But the right answer per Black Spectacles was during SD.
In my notes, I remember that it doesn't make sense to do Value Engineering during SD because the design is still in rapid development and a lot of materials and assemblies are not selected yet, to find cheaper substitutes for selected options. So Value Engineering during SD will cause a lot of re-work.
What is NCARB's opinion on that?
How one should answer the VA question during the exam?
Lara Black Spectacles ?
