This paper begins with an analysis of the supply and demand of Value Management (VM) services in the UK construction industry, and the need for building an Expert System (ES) to improve VM implementation. It then discusses the feasibility and principles of using ES to improve VM implementation in the U.K. construction industry. A prototype ESVMDOB (Expert System for VM in the Design of Office Buildings) with VM domain knowledge is introduced.
