The Future of Quality
Automation, artificial intelligence, data analytics, smart manufacturing, and other disruptive technologies—collectively known as Industry 4.0—have made their grand entrance on the manufacturing floor in recent years. And with more vendors offering automated solutions to quality and manufacturing dilemmas, the tension between people and technology continues to intensify. Or does it? While Industry 4.0 focuses heavily on technology, the next generation of manufacturing, called Industry 5.0, looks to reinvent and even amplify the human element. This session will provide a clear understanding of the role people play in today’s diverse and changing manufacturing landscape, highlight seven reasons to view people as your most valuable resource, and discuss examples of how people and emerging technologies can collaborate to improve quality and manufacturing.
