End-to-end quality process

How to digitally embed quality processes throughout the product creation process

Companies that fail to deliver on their quality promises do significant damage to their reputation. This is just one of the reasons why the industry today wants to link quality goals and processes more effectively to business objectives.

The best way forward is the digital transformation of product creation processes (PCP). With digital end-to-end processes, you can precisely control and regulate all influencing factors that are significant for quality without delay. In other words, end-to-end digitalized PCP processes are crucial for the successful management of quality as a business function.

There is even more to be said for investing in the digital maturity of product creation. Innovations such as end-to-end automation or artificial intelligence (AI) in the product creation process require that you tie complex processes to standards and integrate them digitally.

What the CENIT whitepaper offers you

In our CENIT Whitepaper, author Ulrich Decker outlines how you can anchor quality in the end-to-end process step by step. You are provided with the blueprint of an end-to-end digital quality process that is aligned with the business objectives, takes into account the prerequisites of manufacturing and reliably ensures high product quality as a result.

The white paper provides expertise and practical action items to help you work through this task as a decision maker. Technology, processes and the organization are all taken into account.

Preview of the topics discussed

  • The digital end-to-end quality process: target, benefits and status quo
  • Exemplary projects
  • Outlook: Predictive Quality
  • Exploiting the opportunities of end-to-end digitization

Extracts from the whitepaper

…To successfully establish quality as a digital business function, both the initial change and the satisfaction of specific conditions must be considered. Let’s have a look at technology, processes, and the organization while also examining typical obstacles.

…Check whether there are certain processes which you would like to modify – either as part of a general upgrade or because a higher degree of digital maturity promises a better return on your digitalization investment.

…Previously, the teams used to debug problems only in the preproduction phase or even during series manufacturing. Now, digital safeguards already remove obstacles during the early stages of product development digitally (frontloading) 

...You can expand your means of influence and your optimization potentials even further by deploying additional computing power to exploit artificial intelligence and/or machine learning.
