Unfortunately, most containment actions will add significant cost
to the product. However, it is important to protect the customer from the problem until permanent corrective actions can be verified and implemented.
Most interim actions are �temporary short term� actions taken until a permanent corrective action is defined, implemented and verified. The danger of many interim corrective actions is that they are considered to be a permanent solution to the problem. It must be remembered that they are typically �band-aids�. It is a mistake to view containment actions as a solution to the problem. Containment actions typically address the effect. They should be considered �immediate first-aid� to be reviewed and removed as quickly as possible.
