Detailing

A Major-Defect has on average approximately an order of magnitude more downstream Cost potential than it's Cost to remove immediately.

Rationale: This Concept and classification is necessary to help SQC Checkers and other QC people to focus on what Defects it pays off to find and eliminate in a specification. Without this classification, up to 90% of QC effort might be wasted dealing with Minor-Defects.

Abbreviations: M (Intentionally written with a capital M), Major.
