Quality as a business function

New approaches to digital end-to-end quality processes

Today's manufacturers are challenged to effectively link quality goals and processes to business objectives. Failure to deliver on quality promises can significantly damage a company's reputation.

The precise and delay-free control and regulation of all significant influencing factors should ensure the optimal contribution of quality to key performance indicators (KPI). The basis for this is the digitalization and end-to-end integration of quality processes.

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.
