    Not really anything to do with this other than the title Quality... But I thought I'd mention it anyway.

    A few years ago, a company in a town near me set up to make and sell pine furniture. In 10' high letters painted on the roof in plain view of anyone passing by were the words 'QUALTY PINE FURNITURE' (i.e spelled wrong!).

    I do not know how the quotation was intended to be used. I am not by any means claiming to be using the concept the same as others relative to that quotation. As far as art is concerned consider this example.

    Photos of flowers extremely done, brings pleasure to those that see it. Just superb.

    Photos that are extremely well done involving sexual activity between people that is very effective in stirring eroticism in some, outrage and disgust in others and leads to irresponsible activity for some people leading to disease or harm to others.

    Photographer Robert Marplethorpe has done both. I would when comparing the two because of the negative aspects of the second example rate them as having higher cost to society and therefore lower quality. I am not saying that such photos should not be made. Boy am I ever not saying that!

    Ole I gave it high quality in accomplishing those goals it was designed for. I gave it low quality because of HOW it is used, has in my opinion, been quite costly to society. The society I am referring to is..everybody!

    I sell auto parts and would like to offer my definition of quality.

    QUALITY. Buying auto parts is kinda like buying oats. If you want good clean oats you must pay a fair price. If you don't mind oats that have passed through the horse, that comes a little cheaper.

    Hey, it's good for your garden!

    "Quality is the least overall cost to society."
    We Japanese - QC maniacs should love this

    I don't think Taguchi intended it to be used in photography, but photography related PRODUCTS maybe.

    It's something like ....
    Sony CD player - higher spec, lower quality
    Panasonic CD player - so-so spec, higher quality
