Growing customer requirements, stringent regulations, a global supply chain, and fierce competition are compelling companies across the globe to gain real-time visibility into their quality processes. Many organizations have already deployed industry standards, methodologies, and guidelines on quality management to minimize costs, shorten manufacturing cycle times, and improve the overall product and process quality. However these processes are supported by point-based solutions which lack a broad enterprise reach, making systematic remediation of quality problems, and visibility into quality processes a cumbersome task.

Organizations need to implement an integrated quality management system to transcend silos, and adopt a centralized approach to manage quality and compliance across its enterprise as well as its extended supply chain. This integrated systemwill also enablethem to efficiently track and managequality process, resolve issues, and collaborate effectively with customers. Organizations can thus mitigate redundancies and enhance operational efficiencies.

The three-day meet will provide valuable insights to the cross-industry professionals on

  • Quality Fundamentals
  • Solutions to deal with the complex quality issues for the entire product cycle
  • Risk management tools and methods to build, sustain and improve the overall quality culture within an organization
