Keywords:Prevention costs, value chain, Jordanian industrial companies’ public shareholding
This study aimed to demonstrate the impact of prevention costs on improving the value chain in Jordanian public shareholding industrial companies. That was through the development of the questionnaire as the study tool, whereby the study population is from all the industrial Jordanian public shareholding companies, whose number is (62) (Amman Financial Market, 2019), where a random sample consisting of (53) companies was taken. A (160) questionnaire was randomly assigned to these companies and (107) questionnaires were retrieved for analysis, and the data were analyzed using the SPSS program. The results of the study showed that there is a positive effect of prevention costs in general on improving the value chain in Jordanian public shareholding industrial companies, and the results of the study indicated that there is a high impact for each of the variables (quality planning costs, product design costs, preventive maintenance costs, training costs. On quality, costs of externalities) on improving the value chain. As for the costs of studies and research, they had a moderate impact on improving the value chain. The study recommended the need to develop and improve work with quality tools, especially costs of prevention, to improve productivity and improve the value chain in industrial companies.
