- Intangible Re-positioning: The less tangible aspects of the product are given greater emphasis.
- Tangible Re-positioning: Both market and product are adapted.

Although all operations processes are similar... they do differ in a number of ways. Four of which are listed below:
- The volume of their output;
- The variety of their output;
- The variation in the demand for their output;
- The degree of visibility which customers have of the production of their output.
All four have implications for the cost of creating the products or services.

Dr. David A Garvin (1984) defines eight dimensions of quality or quality characteristics which the customer looks for in a product:
- Features Reliability
- Other perceptions
The customers use these dimensions to form their judgement of quality. The customer will trade-off these quality characteristics against the cost of the product in order to get a value for money product.

Changing processes is difficult and expensive… In some cases, the change may mean starting over.
4 rules to follow when analyzing and designing processes:
- Is the process designed to achieve competitive advantage in terms of differentiation, response, or low cost?
- Does the process eliminate steps that do not add value?
- Does the process maximize customer value as perceived by the customer?
- Will the process win orders?
