10-Steps to Better Quality Management in the Manufacturing Sector

With the evolution of Industry 4.0, manufacturers are slowly embracing a seamless integration of assets and people into a digital ecosystem creating a single source of data and analytics. Industry 4.0 processes are being used in almost all modern manufacturing setups in various sectors, including medical devices, automotive, and aerospace.

Some of the most promising trends of 2023 in quality management are mentioned below.

  • Predictive maintenance will continue to remain a key manufacturing trend.
  • Improving quality will be crucial for manufacturers to meet various challenges, including raw material limitations and rising costs. Consequently, businesses must focus on keeping CoQ low.
  • There will be a growing need for IIoT as data remains a priority. Manufacturers will continue their effort to invest in modernizing legacy systems and adopt more powerful analytics capabilities to slice and dice data that will help gain a comprehensive understanding of their processes and products.
  • The digital twin is expected to remain relevant and popular as it can track assets and operations management, simulate different phases, and provide remote assistance.

Quality in the manufacturing sector goes beyond compliance. Manufacturing quality control is a multi-layered process that is far more than just product inspections. Manufacturers must invest a lot of time in planning and developing an effective quality management policy to ensure manufacturing quality. This also includes ensuring adherence to regulations and quality standards, quality engineering in manufacturing, and risk management.

As companies realize the value of connected data, companies are turning to automation solutions to improve various areas, including quality. Watch this webinar about digital transformation drivers and how they impact electronic quality management systems.
