Study of Value Engineering is the main objective of this paper. This objective is achieved through a case study on Auto Feeder. A typical 58 JUMBO JADHAO DELUXE AUTO FEEDER is selected for applying & studying Value Engineering concept. In the present case study, it is observed that the unnecessary increase in cost is due to the use of expensive material, increase in variety of hardware items and thereby increasing the inventory and so on. Therefore some components from AUTO FEEDER i.e. Tie Bar, Small Bracket for Idler Pulley, Nail Strip, Mounting Bracket for Upper Roll, Upper Roll, Glass Frame & Spacer Wooden Block are selected and value engineering technique is applied for the cost reduction & value improvement of these components of Auto Feeder.
