Lean Manufacturing Quality Concept And Traditional Quality Concept * A Comparison - Articles Surfing

Have you ever thought *quality products are expensive*? You might be prepared to pay some extra money for a high quality product. I believe you have taken the correct move. It is always better to buy a better quality product or service than a low quality one. But I have a small problem regarding your concept about higher price you are paying. Why you should pay extra money to get good quality product. Strange question isn*t it? But I believe it is very much a valid question. I do not believe that you have to pay extra money for the quality. I will explain why.

There are two types of manufacturers around. One is quality manufacturers. They produce quality products and services. Lean manufacturers are naturally quality manufacturers. The other type is average manufacturers. They produce average quality products. They pick best from these products. These selected products are high in quality of cause. Then they sell these products as high quality products. Remember these are not quality manufacturers. They are quality pickers.

When your manufacturer is a quality manufacturer, you will be paying only for the products you are buying. It is obvious isn*t it? You will pay only for the products that you buy. But when you buy a product manufactured by a quality picker, you are paying for the other low quality products as well. Have you thought before? You are actually paying for the product you are buying, and you are also paying for the products which are removed in selecting best quality products from the bunch of average quality products. The cost of low quality products are added to the high quality product. That is why most of the manufacturers will say *High quality products are costly*. If this is a lean manufacturer he will say *Cost is free* instead.
