What Is Value Chain Analysis?

Understand how Value Chain Analysis fits into the supply chain

Value chain analysis refers to the evaluation of current value chain activities, such as logistics, operations and infrastructure, to ensure efficiency or to identify opportunities for improvement. Performing this type of analysis provides the opportunity for businesses to consider how each step of the chain adds or subtracts value from the final product or service, while also identifying gaps and areas to make improvements, eliminate waste, and meet or exceed customer satisfaction.
