How Connected Work Improves Quality Management in Manufacturing
Trends in Quality Management
Few people would debate that product quality has drastically improved over the past several decades. What’s changing is the way in which manufacturers approach quality. An example of this is the rise of quality 4.0 – the application of Industry 4.0’s advanced digital technologies to traditional best practices of quality management.
Constraints to Achieving Quality
Though quality management touches all aspects of an organization, too often the idea of quality isn’t taken seriously enough. Companies view quality as a department and not as a company-wide responsibility. And despite advancements in technology, many companies still maintain obsolete quality approaches. It’s evident there is a misalignment in understanding who should own quality.
Connected Work Is the Key to Continuous Quality Improvement
Connected work helps your organization both in terms of work quality and end-product quality by making activities more consistent, collaborative and transparent.
Leveraging Data to Increase Quality Across the Supply Chain
Organizations need a way to not only capture data in real-time, but to produce insights and feed those insights back into work – driving continuous quality improvement. With connected worker technology, your organization now has access to more data, which allows it to holistically make better decisions related to quality.
