Abstract

The "Silos of Quality" in manufacturing can be described as the proliferation of customized quality languages for different stages of production. This quality "tower of babel" results in excessive translations causing loss of information, reduction of features or capabilities, and/or translation errors. The Quality Information Framework (QIF) is a standard to solve the "Silos of Quality" problem in the discrete manufacturing industry. Because of the history with previously failed quality frameworks, a QIF demonstration was given at International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in 2014 to promote the fact that QIF is a suitable and excellent quality framework for manufacturers. This paper discusses modern production practices, and QIF basic concepts. It also details what QIF demonstrated at IMTS 2014.
