ASQ Quality 4.0 Summit

October 25 – 27, 2021


Quality 4.0: Advances, Adoption and Advocacy

The promise of Quality 4.0 has yet to be fully realized, but recent successes in efficiency, customer satisfaction, financial performance, and corporate culture point to a promising future for quality organizations on their journey to embrace it. At the 2021 Quality 4.0 Summit, attendees will engage in learning and networking activities to increase their understanding and awareness of the current state of 4.0 adoption, and what it means for their organizations, teams, and future as a quality professionals.

No organization is immune to disruption, especially in a digital global community in which almost every function is connected and integrated. A company’s present-day response to digital transformation is a clear indicator of future and—more importantly—ongoing success, but not all organizations are able to immediately leverage the latest technology or application. Nevertheless, there are benefits in small-scale, tiered applications of 4.0 strategies as well as in broad, complex transformation initiatives.

At the 2021 Quality 4.0 Summit, attendees will be immersed in discussions focused on effective ways to integrate the people, process, and technology of their organizations into an overall digital transformation strategy wherever they may be on their transformation journey.
