The CEO of Fresh Snacks Corp. is concerned about the amount of resources currently spent on customer warranty claims. Each box of snacks is printed with the following logo: “Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.” Since the number of claims is high, she would like to evaluate what costs are being incurred to ensure the quality of the product. The following information was collected from various departments within the company:

Cost of disposal of rejected products........................................................ $ 11,000
Preventive maintenance on factory equipment......................................... $ 9,000
Production loss due to machine breakdowns............................................ $ 16,000
Inspection of raw materials........................................................................ $ 5,000
Warranty claims.......................................................................................... $ 416,000
Cost of defective products found at the inspection point......................... $ 80,000
Training factory personnel.......................................................................... $ 36,000
Recall of Batch # 59374............................................................................... $ 175,000
Inspecting products when halfway through the production process......... $ 55,000
