Nowadays, Iranian designers, contractors, and government agents encounter with a lot of problems in their construction projects. The main reasons of the occurring problems can be incorrect designing, the perplexity of technology, variety of expertise needed, plenty of activities and number of stakeholders engaged. For these reasons, the project is not usually completed in due time and in the amount of the predicted cost scope. Value engineering (VE) is a problem-solving method (PSM) based on the systematic job plan and creativity. VE aims at reviewing the project and identifying the opportunity of saving project cost and time. Regretfully, in the same cases, VE is not adjusted with needs, specifications, and limits of project construction and that cannot remove the problems. This paper can use concepts and techniques of total quality management (TQM) for developed VE structure and increase its effect on the construction project. To create a new model, first, VE, TQM, and problem of construction project were reviewed. Next, using other accomplished researchers in this field of study, development potentials of VE was identified. Finally, a new model was issued based on the studies.
