This paper is theoretical in nature and follows the evolution of production in the context of developed nations. We begin with the physical nature of industrial economies of the past, move to the service- and knowledge-based economies of the present, and incorporate the emerging creative industries where human creativity forms the basis on which value is created. Paralleled tothis isthe contributions of academic scholars whose theories and models have provided understanding and meaning at each of these evolutionary stages. The paper culminates with our contribution which recombines aspects of each of the models to form the Value Creation Cube framework. The Value Creation Cube framework represents the different perspectives of production, including the human elements of customers, suppliers, shareholders, employees and managers, whilst also provisioning for the technical components that enable the efficient communication and integration of each of the sub-components.
