Understanding how technology can support manufacturing quality improvement initiatives

Quality improvement missions inside manufacturing plants have historically revolved around processes. However, manufacturing IT managers are now turning to software applications to support quality improvement initiatives.

Once the target for quality improvement reaches the enterprise or supply chain level, then the quality improvement initiative needs to be implemented across multiple sites. At this point, the challenge escalates to making those quality processes repeatable.

In this podcast, industry analyst Simon Jacobson of AMR Research explains:

  • What role the IT team plays in quality improvement;
  • What types of software can be used for quality improvement initiatives;
  • How technology can reduce or eliminate error rates; and
  • What the best starting point is for a quality improvement initiative
