#1 Functional analysis
This has to do with analysing all that a product is going to do, including primary and other related functions that the product will be able to do. It is meant to identify unnecessary functions that may drive up the cost of a project. It is also meant to avoid repetition of functions in a project.

#2 Value engineering and analysis
This is used to identify and develop the cost versus benefit ratio for each functions of a product. You are asking yourself if it reasonable to spend a particular amount to get a particular product function.

It is a method of controlling cost while maintaining performance and quality standards. This method is always adopted in military and construction projects.
