Value Added

The value added to a product or service at each phase of the supply chain, based on the difference between the input value and the output value. A diamond cutter may buy a rough diamond, but once he cuts and polishes the diamond, the resale price will be many times the original cost of the rough diamond. This represents the value added by the diamond cutter. See also Savings.
