Quality - The Need For Quality


Quality is mandatory these days! It  has become sort of a "dogma" in this age.

Each and everything that is manufactured today has one or the other regulatory body that governs the functioning of such organisations and keeps strict vigil over evildoers. Certifications definitely seal their fate.

In a way, it is not the necessity of the government; It is an essential requirement for the people of today. The rapidly developing world has acquired a sense of perhaps self-righteousness that has allowed the Quality industry to boom to the top. With the laws in place and governments around the world supporting this movement, Quality Control and Quality Assurance are the most valued assets of any company these days.
You can sense awareness within the minds of people about the quality of life they are leading. People nowadays are conscious about hygiene, sanitation, and cleanliness. The amount of hand sanitizers, sanitary wipes, and God knows what else is out in the stores; numerous products which no one could have thought would be in so much demand today. Why is this so?

With many people getting educated and the spread of mass media across the globe, it is becoming important to come up with practices that will make the customers believe that whatever they are spending their hard earned money on isn't just some roadside rubbish. Obviously... there simply wouldn't be any sense in buying something at four or five times costlier if it is available locally - cheap and of poor quality.

Companies these days are very worried about the quality of their products, because a single case of negligence may cost them their company's future. They are coming up with better standards and methods to prolong their existence. You can see companies trying to outdo each other in efforts to acquire a better name for themselves.
I do agree that Quality comes at a price. It is very difficult to adhere to the regulations once you establish them. But follow them you must!

Because if the customer doesn't believe in your product firsthand, then boy you are in a lot of trouble...
You will lose your customers, clients, distributors, etc.
It is like a pile of falling dominoes. One falls, the rest follow suit.

It is just like the saying goes:
For the want of a nail a shoe was lost, 
For the want of a shoe a horse was lost, 
For the want of a horse the army was lost,
For the want of an army the battle was lost,
and for the want of a battle a Kingdom was lost!
