If cost is the issue, then one must build quickly, thereby sacrificing quality. If timeliness is the issue, then one may have to sacrifice quality to deliver on time, or compress the work load, thereby increasing the cost. When quality is the prime mover, then speed is reduced and cost increased.
I guess this fits into the balloon theory. If you put pressure on one side of a balloon, there will be a bulge produced somewheres else.
