One of the possibilities is the improvement of the production process quality, which allows to manufacture products of the highest quality while keeping production costs on the competitive and reasonable level. Particularly advanced Ambiance Intelligence (AmI) technology offers excellent opportunities to improve process quality in SMEs. This would allow those companies not only to survive on the demanding market, but also to develop and build solid relations with customers and other companies which need subsuppliers of the highest quality.

Therefore Q4SME is targeting at transfer an adaptation of existing innovative results to provide the large SME community with the modern courses about improvement of the production quality and all aspects of the quality control adapted especially to the specific needs of SMEs.

To realize the ambitious goal of transfer and adaptation of existing innovative results from previous projects, partnership containing institutions from different countries was set up. Project partners have required expertise and knowledge regarding production process quality and all aspects of the quality control, including AmI technology. Some of them have common experiences from former LdV projects. They will use and transfer certain achievements and results of pilot project ISAR, which was realized 2005-2007 and FP6 research project AMI-4-SME.

The aim of the project is to provide a cost-effective, comprehensive training system for SMEs covering technical, organizational and economical aspects of quality control and assurance. Elaborated training system will comprise eLearning solution, learning methodology, materials and instructions regarding preparation and providing of training.

The project impact will be to increase the knowledge of target groups (managers of SME, SME employees, trainers and consultants) about production quality management and control supported by modern technical and ICT solutions, such as AmI technology.
