Quality Lever - definition(s)

Quality Lever - this concept demonstrates that the earlier in the manufacturing process a quality correction or improvement is made, the greater the payoff - both in fixing the process and in reducing the costs. Theoretically, an investment in product engineering quality will give you a payback of 100:1 by the time your product is shipped. At the manufacturing engineering stage investment will have a payback of 10:1 greater than those made at final inspection.
