Chapter 6
Net Value Flow Analysis

This chapter describes the quantification capabilities of the e3value tool. This has not yet been implemented in the e3web tool.

In net value flow analysis of a market scenario we follow a trace through the model from customer needs to boundary elements, and compute the value flows into and out of the actors along this trace. for each actor, these numbers are added to give its net value flow. If the net value flow of an actor is positive, the scenario is financially sustainable for this actor. If the net value flow for all actors in a value network is positive, then the scenario is financially sustainable for the entire value network. If we do a value flow analysis for the money transfers only, we get a cash flow analysis.

First we define traces and then we explain the net value flow analyses for actors, market segments, value activities and partnerships.
