closed loop quality managementThe idea of excellence in quality management continues to evolve every year, and in 2014 it’s reached new heights. Today, we’re seeing market-leaders make investments to close the loop on quality management, connecting traditionally disparate people, process, and technology resources across the value chain for a more holistic view of product and process quality than ever before.

In fact, our recent 2013-2014 quality management research study revealed that 22% of companies currently have closed-loop quality management capabilities, while 40% plan to adopt them in the near future. If closed-loop quality management is still a new concept to you or you’re on the fence over whether or not an investment’s right for your operation, then keep on reading.

Our new infographic below takes comprehensive look at closed-loop quality management. It defines it, shows the benefits of developing closed-loop processes, and then provides an overview of the next-generation technologies companies are leveraging to facilitate those processes.
