Quality in the Future of Manufacturing – A Frost & Sullivan study

Reading time: 67 minutes


The dawn of digitalization and high competitive business environment make a compelling case for a holistic quality management approach in discrete industries.

Quality has often been an aspect heavily talked about but scarcely invested. This rings true across many contexts, but it is most evident in the sector of manufacturing. In our research that involved a large spread of end-users, we have been indicated time and again that quality is a key criterion but one that always falls lower in priority when compared to other KPIs like cycle times, lead times, and production efficiency. Additionally, the value of quality is understood but the cost of quality, at most times, is not sufficiently managed.

This white paper is aimed at establishing an in-depth analysis of the quality paradigm for manufacturing, with special focus on automotive, auto suppliers, heavy equipment and industrial machinery industries.
