Use the Value Stream Mapping Solution to represent easily all steps the product passes until it reaches a customer and define the steps adding value to the product. An important point is that the value of the final product is affected by absolutely all steps, even implicit ones. The final consumer may not even know about these steps, but without them the product's success is unattainable. They increase the cost of the product and affect its relevance. For example, if we are talking about a software product, the consumer does not pay separately for development, quality control, testing, etc. But all these processes are mandatory and directly affect the product's value. And only if the product meets the quality standards and consumer expectations it will be truly successful.
