Hi All,

We are a heavy engineering company that is not very experienced at measuring the CoQ.

So I?m trying to find the ?expected norms? for the CoQ across a variety of industries, i.e. automotive, aerospace, heavy engineering, etc..

Is there a list published anywhere?

You're not likely to find a list, and if there is one it shouldn't be considered reliable. Organizations that think their costs might be relatively high aren't likely to report them (at least not honestly), and because there are no standard methods of calculating costs, comparisons aren't likely to be useful and may be grossly misleading.

Thanks Jim,

You have echoed my thoughts.

There are parts of our organisation reporting their CoQ as less than 1% :lmao:, the problem is that they actually believe it :frust::deadhorse:
