A Value Chain is a network of facilities and processes that describes the flow of goods, services, information, and financial transactions from suppliers through the facilities and processes that create goods and services and deliver them to customers.
The Value Chain is an identification of where in the Supply Chain value is added and how it is added. The Collier/Evans textbook discusses Value Chains throughout the book with special emphasis in Chapters 1 & 2. This assignment requires students to develop a Value Chain and explain why/how each component of the chain adds value to the ultimate product or service. The Value Chain should be based on the same company that you based your Supply Chain on.
