Cost structure is a component of the Business Model Canvas, which takes into account the costs incurred in the company or by the business model. Since all costs must first be recorded concretely, it is essential that both the key activities and the key resources, as well as the key partnerships have been clearly defined beforehand. In general, fixed and variable costs result from the business activity.  However, it must also be taken into account whether the business model in question is a cost-oriented or a value-oriented model. While the cost-oriented business model focuses on minimizing costs, the value-oriented business model focuses on creating high-quality offerings. The emergence of models that include both cost and value-oriented fundamentals is also possible.
