Manufacturing companies can competitively position themselves amongst the most advanced and influential companies by successfully implementing Quality 4.0 practices. The hype surrounding big data and artificial intelligence have influenced many quality leaders to act on implementing a Quality 4.0 initiative. However, according to recent surveys, most of them do not have a clear vision about how to create value out of these disruptive technologies. This situation is reflected on the success rate, since 80-87% of the data science projects never develop a sustainable solution. In this presentation, Process Monitoring for Quality–a Quality 4.0 initiative–is reviewed. To cope with its implementation challenges, a novel 7-step problem solving strategy that evolved from six sigma DMAIC is introduced. The proposed problem-solving strategy increases the likelihood of success of the Quality 4.0 initiative.
