The cost to fix an error increases by about an order of magnitude at each step of a product life cycle. Evidence exists in many different industries that if an error caught at concept phase costs about $0.10 per unit to fix, then:

– An error caught in the design phase could cost about $1 per unit to fix

– An error caught in the test phase could cost about $10 per unit to fix

– An error caught in the production phase could cost about $100 per unit to fix

– And, finally, an error in the field could cost $1,000 per unit to fix.

To save a design penny, the potential cost is 10.000x!
