From something I'm editing:
"This is not the time to have a poor quality inspection."
Unlike yesterday's sentence, which had a less-than-ideal hyphen, this sentence would benefit from a hyphen between "poor" and "quality":
"a poor-quality inspection"
This hyphen makes the sentence smoother for the reader.
