Abstract

The phrase Quality 4.0, derived from the German industrialization program called Industry 4.0, is an evaluation of the role of quality in an increasingly digital and automated world. One question surrounding Quality 4.0 is where increasing automation will leave quality professionals in the future. Technology has changed quality work and now offers useful statistical software that allows the Six Sigma movement to grow, tons of data that allow quality professionals to act on quality issues in almost real time, and new statistical methods that can make problem solving more efficient.
