In a way, quality is less valuable than you think. It’s also more expensive than you think. These were some of the points that came out of this recent Webinar presented by David Lechleitner of Exact JobBoss.
Why less valuable? Because quality is no longer a differentiator. Today, practically every contract manufacturer either has, or claims to have, a rigorous quality program.
Why more expensive? Because many manufacturers price their quality efforts in terms of costs related to scrap and rework. That’s not enough. The cost of quality actually includes everything the shop does to try to avoid nonconformity. For many manufacturers, this includes an investment prior to manufacturing for steps such as new product review and quality planning.
Exact JobBoss’s Webinar is about marshaling a shop’s quality efforts within a comprehensive, consistent and cost-effective Total Quality Management program. Watch the recorded version here.blog comments powered by Disqus
