I am doing research about the perception of quality. I have finished the philosophical part and moved to more practical questions and have some troubles understanding the following (quote from a book):
Quality is subject to constraints. However, cost may be wider than simple financial cost: it refers to any critical resource such as people, tools and time.
For the financial cost, it gives an example: more people buy cheaper cars than Rolls-Royce's because their assessment is constrained by cost.
My question is, how then the assessment can be constrained by the other constraints they mention? (time, tools, people)?
