Quality and Reliability Relationship
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss further the ways that reliability can be affected by poor quality and lead to different ways that lead to customer dissatisfaction.
- Quality problems such as cosmetic issues such as paint flaking off can lead to returns as “failures” even though the products are functional.
- Customers may see quality issues that are not functional failures as indicators of poor probability of future reliability
- Reliability is a subset of overall quality with some overlap, but typically the most serious and important factor to the customer
