Summary/Abstract: The concept of quality has been for many years, although its meaning has changed, has evolved and adapted in time. It has always been specific human nature to turn into leaders to those who contributed to the evolution of the thought and the progress of mankind. Regardless of their creation, people have always proved, as important as this. It was the case of quality and those who believed in it. The sooner the flaws are discovered, the cheaper it is their correction. The total quality costs are consistent with the sum of these costs. They are the difference between the real cost of a product or service and the potential cost (reduced) obtained whether the product or service would have been achieved or preserved in accordance with the client requirements. The quality generates numerous costs, which may be grouped in two categories, category comprising the costs necessary to obtain higher quality, nominated quality (costs of prevention) or quality control (costs costs), and the second category comprising costs generated by reduced quality, namely the cost of the quality of the internal flaws (internal defects) or the failure (the costs of external defects). Without doubt, quality experts had the significant roles to expend and transform the concept of quality from a mere technical system to a broader body of knowledge known as total quality with management implications in production.
