Digital Reality in Zero Defect Manufacturing

QU4LITYDigital Reality in Zero Defect Manufacturing

QU4LITY will demonstrate, in a realistic, measurable, and replicable way an open, certifiable and highly standardised, SMEfriendly and transformative shared data-driven ZDM product and service model for Factory 4.0 through 5 strategic ZDM plug & control lighthouse equipment pilots and 9 production lighthouse facility pilots.


QU4LITY will also demonstrate how European industry can build unique and highly tailored ZDM strategies and competitive advantages like:

  • significantly increase operational efficiency
  • scrap reduction
  • prescriptive quality management
  • energy efficiency
  • defect propagation avoidance
  • foster new digital business models

These advantages will be achieved through an orchestrated open platforms ecosystem, ZDM atomized components and digital enablers as:

  • Industry 4.0 digital connectivity & edge computing package
  • plug & control autonomous manufacturing equipment
  • real-time data spaces for process monitoring & adaptation
  • simulation data spaces for digital process twin continuity
  • AI-powered analytic data spaces for cognitive digital control
  • twin composable services
  • European quality data marketplace


The enablers must be available across all phases of product and process lifecycle (engineering, planning, operation and production) building upon the QU4LITY autonomous quality model to meet the Industry 4.0 ZDM challenges.
