Quality of Design

Interesting thoughts on quality of design vs. quality of manufacture.

Defining Quality: http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2011/07/defining-quality.html

One thought that occurred to me is that on a very basic level you can apply the formula [(result of work effort)/(total costs)] to making something yourself as opposed to buying it. At some point the cost (time/money) outweighs the quality of results you get by making x yourself, at which point, unless you have unlimited amounts of time, you would probably be better off purchasing x product.
