What is the Cost of Quality (CoQ):
Many definitions and models define CoQ. The most straightforward is the one identified by the American Society of Quality (ASQ), as follows:
An organization’s CoQ is actually the cost of NOT creating a quality product or service.
Every time work is redone, the cost of quality increases. Obvious examples include:
As stated by Jim Smith in the June issue of Quality Magazine, "Quality is measured by the price of nonconformance (PONC)."
In short, any cost that would not have been expended if quality were perfect (zero defects) contributes to the cost of quality.

3DCS and CATIA V5, together, offer great tools for a robust user experience. This article focuses on one of those tools, called Cache Mode. Cache Mode in CATIA V5 offers flexibility when building a Tolerance Model in 3DCS. When Cache Mode is activated, large amounts of data are stored in a local folder, reducing the overall size of an assembly. For 3DCS users, this means building and running Simulations of an entire vehicle faster.

Highlights From the 3DCS for NX Webinar
Looking for a quick peek at the new 3DCS for NX? These short video clips are a great way to see the functionality and understand more about the software. Illustrated by Gary Bell, DCS Senior Variation Analyst, the videos walk through some of the major uses of the software.
The purpose of tolerance analysis is to understand and validate that if you go into production with your current process, component part tolerances and indexing methods, will you meet your final dimensional goals.
3DCS is industry standard for aerospace and automotive companies looking to product more efficiently by reducing non-conformance, scrap and rework.
