If customers dont feel they are getting value:
-They complain
-They demand
-They demand fund
-They stop buying your product
-They tell others (this is a I tell everybody generation)
-People talk to each other about quality of products, and they rely on that assessment.
Example of personal computer
-Selling price - $1 000
-Cost
10 hours of labour *$25/hr = (25)
Repair dept (1hour labour @ $25) = (25)
New part= (50)
Profit = 400
If something does not work then company makes a loss. That is why quality is important.
Do it right the first time because it costs more to deal with repair and replacements
Unsatisfied customers: 90% dont complain
-They just... Dont go back
-Business loses all future sales from that customer
