This paper presents the research methodology used in current research to examine how Value Management (VM) or Value Engineering (VE) is applied in the Malaysian construction sector. After scrutinising the methods used by past researchers from 2015-2023, many methods were identified, such as quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods. To achieve the goals of this study, a quantitative technique is chosen for the research. First, an extensive literature review was done to gather the variables, and semi-structured interview was conducted for the pilot study on developing the main questionnaire. Then, the main survey using questionnaire is carried out to get in-depth information on the VM methodology and its implications for Sustainable Success (SS) in Malaysian public housing projects. Finally, the VM/VE framework is then validated by a questionnaire from experts. A proposed framework for VM/VE that is suggested for usage in the Malaysian context and can be used by the key stakeholders in construction is the anticipated outcome of this research. Thus, by having an appropriate research methodology for the study, the future framework may improve the provision of urban planning and smart cities, focusing on social, economic, and environmental considerations.
