Value Adding Activities

Value Adding Activities are any activities that add value to the customer and meet the three criteria for a Value Adding Activity.

The three criteria for a Value Adding Activity are:

  1. The step transforms the item toward completion
  2. The step is done right the first time (not a rework step)
  3. The customer cares (or would pay) for the step to be done
