What is "Total Cost of Ownership" (TCO)?(No.1676)

TCO refers to the total cost of ownership from purchase to disposal for users.

For example, if a product has low initial cost but short life, it needs to be replaced frequently. On the other hand, if a product has a high initial cost but long life, it will not require replacement or will be replaced less often.

In the long run, products with a longer life, even with a higher initial cost, will result in a lower TCO.
