The Factory of the Future will be smarter, leaner, and more efficient than ever before. To stay competitive in an increasingly global marketplace, businesses must adapt to this new way of thinking about quality management.
Quality intelligence harnesses end-to-end production data that will prepare your factory for long term success and consistent quality. Embrace Quality 4.0 to optimise your factory’s quality control, visibility and traceability.
Why Does Quality Management Need to Evolve?
Traditional quality systems rely on a complex range of inputs. From machine generated data, to human inspection and paper forms, managing and ensuring quality production is prone to human error. With quality teams stretched over a factory, or even multiple sites, complex challenges for quality leaders cause extra work and disconnected process flow.

What is Quality 4.0?
Quality management is changing with Industry 4.0 and the Factory of the Future. With Quality 4.0, integrating AI, Machine Learning and Big Data into your factory’s end-to-end quality system gives quality teams the most accurate and integrated data from which to make decisions.
The quality management system of the future, Quality 4.0, uses real-time and historical production data to streamline compliance, enterprise-wide visibility, traceability and digital quality checks.
Ensuring Successful Quality 4.0 in the Factory of the Future
Quality intelligence uses specific and pertinent information from across the shop floor and production output to streamline quality management systems for Industry 4.0.
The key success factors for quality management in the Factory of the Future are:
