This diagram illustrates the relationship of cost and resource use to Efficiency and Value. Efficiency can be defined broadly as the resource use (or cost) associated with a specific level of performance or quality. Time is sometimes used to define efficiency when determining efficiency of throughput processes or applying time-driven activity based costing methods.  Resource use measures can also be used to assess value by integrating stakeholder preference-weighted assessments of the quality and cost performance (i.e. efficiency).
