Plant Managers

‎Today’s challenges for you as a plant manager‎

For you, as the person responsible for production, the level of complexity in products and processes and the degree of difficulty has increased enormously. Manufacturing companies are under pressure – no question about it. But which current challenges are currently particularly great, and how can they be countered? We have now compiled a list of challenges that you are certainly already facing in your company.

The top 7 challenges for plant managers:


  1. Shorter product life cycles
  2. Increasing number of variants due to more individual products
  3. Increasing order fluctuations, leading to less and less predictability
  4. Increased availability and productivity requirements, coupled with ever greater plant complexity
  5. Higher costs due to downtime, increasing safety and environmental protection requirements, new requirements such as sustainable production
  6. The shortage of skilled workers requires solutions with fewer personnel
  7. Targeted and future-oriented investments in the introduction of new technologies, networking, and digitalization (topic “Industry 4.0”)

To master these challenges, you need the appropriate software for your quality management as your central and forward-looking tool – for Quality 4.0 in your production.

This is precisely what our CAQ software is suited for.

QDA supports Quality 4.0 with a modern plant layout and traffic light system, reliably evaluates process stability and offers core tools for new development. The future-oriented document management system completely eliminates manual work, resulting in the completion of decision-making processes up to 10x faster.
