Cost Savings Placeholders in Process Development

It’s easy to get caught up in “get it working” fever and be so focused as to have an attitude of, if it works: don’t touch it. But this attitude can just be a way to reduce mental effort while working on multiple higher priority issues. This is highly reasonable, but, it can also be expensive, as rapidly developed solutions are usually optimized for meeting the success criteria with minimized guessed risks rather than for least cost. So, one must keep track of all of the unoptimized processes that accumulate in development as well as their associated cost and all of the guessed risks and devise plans to test for and eliminate the guessed risks and optimize the process for least cost and highest success rate.
