The pressures of modern manufacturing require that the quality-cost benefits are determined when evaluating new procedures or alternative operating policies. Traditionally, cost reports and other quality metrics have been used for this purpose. However, the interactions between the main quality cost drivers cannot be understood at the superficial level and the effect that a new process or an alternative operating policy may have on quality costs is difficult to determine.
