Business, Legal & Accounting Glossary
The time spent that improves the outcome of a process is referred to as value added time. Typically, this is just the processing time associated with production. All other intervals associated with a process, such as wait time and queue time, add nothing to the outcome and are thus classified as non-value added time. This concept is used to identify non-value added activities and remove them from a process, thereby reducing the total time required to complete a process. When the duration of the manufacturing process is reduced in this way, it can provide a competitive advantage because a company can respond to customer demands more quickly.
It may be possible to shorten the amount of time spent adding value in a process. However, because non-value added time accounts for such a large portion of total processing time, it is usually easier to start by eliminating or reducing it.
