Why Higher Performance Does not Mean
Higher Costs: The Real Costs of a Price-Only
In highly competitive manufacturing industries, such as automotive and electronics, it is important to keep costs as low as possible. However, basing a decision about which measuring equipment to use on price alone is rarely a good idea. This is particularly the case with complex components and mechanisms where tolerances are extremely tight. Buying on price alone could result in the sensors being less efficient, more prone to errors, taking longer to arrive and there being less support with buying decisions and using the equipment.
