Progressive digitalization is changing the game of many industrial sectors. Focusing on product quality the main profitability driver of this so-called Industry 4.0 will be the horizontal integration of information over the complete supply chain. Therefore, the European RFCS project “Quality 4.0” aims in developing an adaptive platform, which releases decisions on product quality and provides tailored information of high reliability that can be individually exchanged with customers. In this context Machine Learning will be used to detect outliers in the quality data.

This paper discusses the intermediate project results and the concepts developed so far for this horizontal integration of quality information.


This project has received funding from the Research Fund for Coal and Steel of the European Union (EU) under grant agreement No 788552. Name of the Action: Transparent product quality supervision in the age of Industry 4.0, Acronym: Quality4.0.
