For Your Information

Get in the know on 4.0

It was only a few years ago that the term “Quality 4.0” caused people to cock their heads and raise their eyebrows. It took some time—spurred by the radically fast rate of technological change—to build and cultivate the content and offerings that now are part of ASQ’s body of knowledge.

In a few short years, we’ve made tremendous progress in fleshing out the information and offerings to help you navigate the brave new world of quality in the age of Industry 4.0 and its related technologies.

Books, magazines and journal articles are being published almost every month that deliver 4.0 information and insights. ASQ even launched a conference in 2017 to fill the need for Quality 4.0 awareness and education. This year, the event takes place Nov. 18-19 in Dallas and provides a great opportunity to get up to speed on emerging technologies how are reshaping quality.

ASQ is here to help you navigate Quality 4.0. Read on to discover:

  • Your introduction to a six-step framework for integrating quality and 4.0 technology into supply chains (“Make the Connection”).
  • How big data affects quality improvement, and better problem solving by unlocking the benefits of big data (“Actionable Insights”).
  • Guidance for developing a digital strategy that aligns to technological influences on the present and future business environment (“Ahead of the Curve”).
  • A primer on mobile assurance apps and how they can be used without sacrificing critical analysis (“A Mobile Mindset”).
  • How artificial intelligence can introduce bias into results (Progress Report).
