Abstract:All organizations in different sectors of the industries should implement quality management practices to improve their performances. In order to prove that a quality management program is cost effective, it is necessary to identify and measure the quality costs in the system (Love,2000; Aoieong, 2002). However, very few companies are interested in quality cost computations to quantify the benefits of TQM, due to the great number and complexity of phases and / or activities involved in the operations. In this study, it is notified that if a general approach in tracking and measuring quality costs in different fields of study is developed, companies will be encouraged to trace their quality management performances, decrease their costs of operations and increase overall profits. Hence, in this paper, a DBMS design has been proposed which makes it possible to track deviations from ideal quality successfully and the cost of deviations per unit object in a quality management system.
