Re: How to establish process in term of more added-value?
A value-added process, as generally defined in the Lean part of Lean Sigma Six would have you determine what your customer wants, and head in that direction. Quality added to the process in excess of this amount is wasted quality. To effectively implement such a quality-added process, would require you to determine your current process effectiveness, and drive it towards meeting the customer requirements. This sometimes means removing or reducing your processes to meet the specific needs defined by the customer. [Input] + quality-added process(s) => [Output]
No extra wasted quality.
Ask the customer for very specific requirements.
Review your process, or several processes, effectiveness towards customer requirements and/or regulation requirements.
Do only what is needed, and you have arrived at LEAN Value-added process.
If the part you make is +/-1%, then using a device to measure +/-0.001% is extra quality. +/-0.1% is minimum.
