Welcome to the Innovation Technical Community!

Message from the Chair


Hello Innovation Technical Community Members,


It has always been our stance that Quality drives Innovation and Innovation in-turn, drives Quality. From tolerances to automation, the innovations that we have seen have always improved Quality. However, these innovations would not have been possible without the desire to improve Quality.

As 2020 approaches, we are again faced with a great opportunity of Innovation. In the manufacturing industry, Industry 4.0 will begin providing an incredible amount of data to enhance Quality. In the consumer space, automation and AI are becoming more commonplace. This is an exciting time to be involved with Innovation!


The Innovation Technical Community is working on enhancing the value of your membership by providing you access to numerous Innovation methods, topics, and thought leaders. As a technical community, we are focused on providing resources to our members that will help drive Innovation while maintaining a Quality mindset.


We have numerous opportunities for members to get involved with the technical community and are always looking for feedback for how to provide more value to you. If you are interested in getting involved, please fill out our Volunteer survey here, or if you would like to provide feedback, please feel free to reach out to me directly via email.

I hope that everyone is as excited as I am for 2020 and all of the Innovations that are to come!


Kind regards,
Dan Jones
