When a product is not right the first time it adds to the cost of manufacturing. Energy productivity takes a big hit when the first pass reject rate goes up.
Poor quality hits energy bills when it causes the need to re-make or rework the product before it can be shipped. Making a replacement part for a rejected one doubles the energy used per unit.
Reworking off spec product adds labor and energy to the cost of goods sold. Salvaging bad parts by reworking them costs extra energy for the lighting, power tools, welding and additional movement of materials.
Off grade product increases the need for quality inspection. Inspection of raw materials and finished goods at every step of the manufacturing and salvaging process takes extra energy. More inspection requires more energy for lighting. 100% inspection uses more energy than random or lot checks do.
Customers will not buy junk. Poor quality reduces sales volume resulting in low operating rates. High quality promotes more sales. More sales mean more production. Operating at full capacity is the most energy efficient way to run.
Poor quality increases labor, material, material handling, and energy cost. The higher the quality is the lower the energy cost and the higher our job security is.
Making it right the first time saves energy.
