Please see attached Word and Excel files (Excel has multiple tabs).

Pg. 137, #1-5.

Set D = 0 in each equation:

ca = 100(0) + 1500 = 1500
cp = -50(0) + 6300 = 6300
cf = (0)e0.5(0) = 0

Since the total cost of quality is the sum of the individual costs of quality, we have

Total cost of quality = 1500 + 6300 + 0 = 7800.

In the Excel sheet, we use formulas to find the costs of quality for every D from 0 to 100 (in increments of 5). The numbers and the graph clearly show that the cost of failure dominates.

To find the minimum total cost, ...
