Industry 4.0 or Smart Manufacturing is the name given to the transformational change that is connecting people, data and machines in new ways, and revolutionizing the practices and outcomes in manufacturing companies and their supply chains. At the core of Smart Manufacturing, the same transformation can be seen in Quality Management. We define Quality Management in the era of Smart Manufacturing as Quality Intelligence.
These transitions will not happen overnight and this will not happen in a linear way, but we know that integration and automation play a key role. This white paper presents a springboard to change and asks organizations to self-assess to what extent they are ready for Quality Intelligence and to leverage tomorrow’s possibilities.
