Defects and Cost Control

The graphic below tries to show that there is a cost associated with poor quality.

  • If you have poor quality you have to develop processes and systems and expend resources to provide quality control.
  • By reducing the number of defects produced by a process you free up the resources involved in oversight and correction, reducing the cost of control.
