Embrace an easier path to quality transformation—without overburdening your teams or your operations.
July 26, 2021
“Transformation” is a huge buzzword in manufacturing right now—but it can also seem overwhelming. If you are thinking that a digital transformation means major disruption, expense, and time, let’s simplify. A simple proof of concept can be a first step that makes an immediate difference in how you think about process and quality optimization.
Visibility into your quality and operational data enables you to reduce costs and risk while maximizing value.

Digital access to quality data enables manufacturers to make informed decisions that optimize manufacturing operations. Learn how to balance cost, value, and risk for greater efficiencies at every level.
Your “owned” on-premises software is never really paid for. Keep in mind your ongoing costs.

For many manufacturers, moving to a cloud-based quality management software solution sounds expensive—until you add up all the costs of the on-premises solution you already “own.” Learn what you need to know to truly compare the costs of on-premises and cloud software.
Dashboards change the way people work by giving them the specific information they need—whether they are onsite or working remotely.

Static product quality reports have become a source of data overload as the volume of data that manufacturers collect—and the number of stakeholders onsite and offsite who need that data—has increased. Dashboards provide simple clarity to users, whatever their role or location.
If you’re in manufacturing, no matter the industry, quality is top of mind. It must be, or you won’t be in business long. Yet, with all the focus, there are big misses all the time in companies large and small, which leads to an interesting question: If quality gets so much attention, why are recalls still increasing? Further, what can we do about it?
For nearly 85 years, quality professionals have used SPC to monitor, control, and improve their manufacturing processes. Using statistical tools to detect variability before a sub-standard part can be produced—and thus, reduce scrap, downtime, and rework costs—began in the mid-1920s with handwritten control charts.
The Entrepreneurial Company Award recognizes the company that provides the best innovation and customer impact and has the genuine potential to disrupt the market by delivering advanced products that clearly help customers achieve desired outcomes with significant value for the price.
Most quality departments are still doing things the old fashioned way: measure, collect, compare, respond, fix, and repeat. This reactive, legacy approach is, of course, vital for any successful company, but in this data-driven age of smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0, it’s not enough.
So, let’s say you’re headhunted by a tier one oil company to lead their upstream business process in a new territory where, amongst many other demanding strategic and operational responsibilities, you will need to procure and commission a new production rig.
