In today's competitive business world, companies need to present new perspectives to market and sell the goods they manufacture. In this context, as a new approach, the value-based manufacturing can be defined as the manufacturing that providers are paid based on the amount of the services they deliver rather than fee-for-service or capitated approach in classical manufacturing approaches. This new approach. This new approach will lead to radical changes in manufacturing systems with its integration to industry 4.0.
