Cost of Quality (COQ) is a basic tool for quality practitioners. The name is somewhat misleading; some persons use the expression Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ). Regardless of name, COQ characterizes the costs that would disappear if the product or service was perfect. This presentation will include a historical overview, methods for collection, analysis and reporting of COQ and examples of its power.
