Article Abstract

An inexpensive computerized quality cost analysis system which tracks and reports rework and scrap costs through out a repetitive manufacturing process is a definite asset to management. The system described is applicable to small companies (for under $25,000 including hardware and software) and for larger companies, may be easily duplicated for different parts of the process. Costs, defects, rework, scrap, etc. Are displayed in different formats including SPC charts. The data base is easily established and is made additionally powerful through an enhanced statistical analysis package. The system helps to identify and analyze the payback potential of areas of the process which could benefit from tooling capital expenditures, improved input materials, enhanced training, or the addition or reduction of inspection and tests functions.
