A quality costing exercise was undertaken, and it was revealed that quality failures accounted for 0.05% of the project's contract value. The contractor's experiences in implementing and analyzing its quality costs offer a learning opportunity for companies seeking a competitive advantage by implementing quality improvement programs.
