The environmental cost categories are helpful for an organization to reduce negative outcome by spending more for control the quality. The prevention is a category of environmental cost that needs very less investment in control, so an organization should provide first priority to the prevention (Eshel, et al., 2015). After this detection is an appraisal activity that can be controlled by the management by the detection of the poor quality in the production.
After the detection activities the organization can control on the failure that may internal or external but an organization can control on internal failure first. The internal failure is more controllable than external failure because this failure is affected by internal sources such as scrap, repairing etc.
The external failures are not highly controllable by the organization so an organization should not spent more on them (Bovea and Pérez-Belis, 2012). These failure needs high costs for analysis the reasons of the failure of the product and service in the market.
