Cost of Poor Quality


This problem-solving training introduces unique, effective approaches to problem-solving and decision-making. These approaches have been employed successfully in establishing improvements in processes, performance, and productivity.

Course Objectives

Significant aspects of quality costs are normally overlooked or unrecognized simply because most accounting systems are not designed to identify them. Examining the Costs of Waste (the hidden CoW in your company) and how to measure and use them to direct problem solving and continuous improvement in your organization will be featured in this class. Use these metrics to help drive “Lean” initiatives!


What are some of the wasted steps or unneeded processes or errors that contribute to excessive and unnecessary expenses, or costs? Analysis of these costs is essential in identifying the financial benefits gained from improvement efforts. This analysis also helps to prioritize just where you need to exert your effort to get the most return for your investment of time or resources.
