Digitalization – Quality in the age of Industry 4.0
Smart products and digital transformation represent a complex, dynamic and challenging environment for organisations. Remote monitoring and location technologies affect almost every core function of a company and the main activities of the value chain.
Quality 4.0 does not lie in the individual production stages but in a holistic and integrated ‘end-to-end quality’ approach. Merely changing the processes is not enough. It is only by adapting the business model that the possibilities of the Internet of Things can deliver a real competitive advantage.
The intention of this whitepaper is to outline a new vision of quality for the ‘World 4.0’. It presents related concepts, business models and best practices of succesful companies.
