Performance quality

Performance quality is the level at which the product’s primary characteristics operate. Firms should design a performance level appropriate to the target market and competition, however, not necessarily the highest level possible. They must also manage performance quality through time. Continuously improving the product can produce high returns and market share; falling to do so can have negative consequences.
