    Are there any good books/websites/resources that will give a full discription and thorough detail on Value and Non-Value Added?  How about books on Cost of Poor Quality?  I am conducting a workshop on these two Six Sigma topics and was hoping to collect more information.  Thank you!

    Evelyn:
    Obtain a copy of “Lean Thinking” by Jones and Womack.  Anything on the value stream map that does not add value is muda (waste or non-value adding activities).  There are 7 types of muda, e.g., overproduction, waiting, excess inventory, storage, movement (transportation), defects, etc.
    There is a fair amount of information on the web concerning Lean, value stream mapping, waste, etc.  Check the Lean Institute web site first.
    Good luck.

    Trishcler’s booklet – ASQ Press – is a good read on defining and understanding value / non-value add

    An exceptional book on Lean is:
     
    Lean Production Simplified: A Plain-Language Guide to the World’s Most Powerful Production System by: Pascal Dennis.  ISBN: 1563272628
     
    Although I don’t know for sure if this will provide you with what you are looking for it is an exceptional book on describing the various tools within the Lean toolkit.  And how they relate to one another.  Pascal Dennis worked for Toyota in Canada for a number of years and now does consulting.  A little with Jim Womack’s Lean Enterprise Institute.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
    Good Luck
