ASQ Quality 4.0 Summit

October 12 – 14, 2022 | San Antonio, TX


Quality 4.0: AN EVOLVING APPROACH TO QUALITY

Theme
The value proposition that accompanies Quality 4.0 is clear: Organizations that embrace it can experience gains in innovation, creativity, data insights and stakeholder satisfaction. But this change goes beyond adopting new technologies; it leads to a mindset shift in how an organization leverages its people, processes, and technologies to improve quality. Opportunities for quality improvement can be realized by organizations of all sizes and operating budgets.  

At this year’s summit, we’ll examine keys to adopting Quality 4.0 to infuse an enterprise with scalability, sustainability, and adaptability. Discover how emerging technologies enable organizations to develop more effective, efficient, and evolved quality processes which lead to higher levels of quality. Explore how best to integrate and optimize data; decode the acronyms of intelligent Quality 4.0 tools and technologies; and learn to leverage the right people and processes to ensure a synergistic approach to adopting a Quality 4.0 mindset.  

Bring an open mind to the 2022 Summit and leave with a Quality 4.0 mindset geared toward optimizing quality in your team, organization, and career.
Focus Areas

Managing people, process, and change

If Quality 4.0 is to become embedded within an organization, the right people and processes must be in place to ensure a symbiotic relationship between technology and human creativity. 

Leaders of transformation must leverage the scalability of technologies along with the powerful insights that quality professionals bring to a 4.0 initiative.  

What’s more, companies must quickly identify and adapt to new quality roles (and sometimes even careers) driven by breakthrough innovations in computing, automation, and the virtual landscape. These sessions highlight key skills and strategies necessary for a synergistic approach to transformation and technology adoption across an array of markets, businesses, and budgets.  

Alphabet city in the digital world: IoT, AI, RPA, ML and more

Often talked about as a single entity, the quality world’s suite of acronyms relating to digital, automated, and cloud-based applications are quite distinct in terms of use and function. However, these tools do overlap, with the promise of even greater integration in the near and long term. In this area of focus, attendees will deepen their understanding of the terminology surrounding intelligent automation and look at real-world use cases demonstrating how to assess and optimize application.

Data integration and optimization 

Data gathering continues to become more sophisticated and nimbler, allowing organizations to leverage information assets and effectively compete in the marketplace. Still, many companies fall short of realizing the maximum advantage data provides. The reason? Data, along with the tools to manage it, are not fully aligned with enterprise goals, KPIs and capacity. In this area of focus, sessions will unveil key methods for data integration and optimization that allow quality professionals to deliver accuracy, access, and richness of data for sustained success and future growth and ensure digital transformation plans stays the course.
