Is quality free? Or does quality have a cost? What about the cost of poor quality? How much does that cost? Can you think of a time when you bought a product and it was defective? What did you do? How did it make you feel about the firm who made the product? Think about your actions in that scenario and the costs the company had to incur to “make it right.”
Cost of quality (COQ) analysis was developed in the 50s to help clarify the cost impacts of poor conformance quality. COQ identifies and assesses four major cost categories, which are prevention, appraisal, internal, and external costs.
