CHAPTER 19 BALANCED SCORECARD: QUALITY, TIME, AND THE THEORY OF CONSTRAINTS 19-1 Quality costs (including the opportunity cost of lost sales because of poor quality) can be as much as 10% to 20% of sales revenues of many organizations. Quality-improvement programs can result in substantial cost savings and higher revenues and market share from increased customer satisfaction. 19-2 Quality of design refers to how closely the characteristics of a product or service meet the needs and wants of customers. Conformance quality refers to the performance of a product or service relative to its design and product specifications. 19-3 Exhibit 19-1 of the text lists the following six line items in the prevention costs category: design engineering; process engineering; supplier evaluations; preventive equipment maintenance; quality training; and testing of new materials. 19-4 An internal failure cost differs from an external failure cost on the basis of when the nonconforming product is detected. An internal failure is detected before a product is shipped to a customer, whereas an external failure is detected after a product is shipped to a customer. 19-5 Three methods that companies use to identify quality problems are: (a) a control chart which is a graph of a series of successive observations of a particular step, procedure, or operation taken at regular intervals of time; (b) a Pareto diagram, which is a chart that indicates how frequently each type of failure (defect) occurs, ordered from the most frequent to the least frequent; and (c) a cause-and-effect diagram, which helps identify potential causes of failure.
