Enable Your Transformation to Lean and Green Manufacturing

Reduce costs, master complexity, conserve resources. IQA is the software for continuous transparency in value streams and AI-based improvement.

What is IQA

Revolutionize lean manufacturing with IQA: unlock efficient and sustainable production processes with an intelligent value stream twin and AI-based analytics.


Create Value Stream Transparency

IQA generates a digital twin of production processes at the click of a button. The software uses data from existing IT systems to automatically reconstruct the actual process flows and material movements, eliminating the need for manual process mapping. This fully automates value stream mapping and enables data-driven process analysis.

Uncover Improvement Potential

With automated Lean Manufacturing analyses, IQA quickly uncovers improvement potential in production processes. AI-based algorithms identify even deeply hidden root causes of process weaknesses and prioritize the most critical areas for action.

Enable Continuous Improvement

Instead of snapshot observations, IQA continuously analyzes production processes based on a robust data foundation. Deviations from set targets or optimal conditions are quickly identified, enhancing both the continuous improvement process and daily shop floor management.


Digital Value Stream

Value streams for all products are automatically reconstructed from existing data. Instead of a labor-intensive, manual snapshot, all production and logistics processes are continuously captured in the digital twin and are analyzable on a broad data foundation.

Lean Analytics

IQA provides automated analyses to detect waste in production processes and prioritize resulting action areas. Weaknesses are automatically identified and traced back to their root causes through AI-powered techniques.

Digital Kaizen

IQA enables the rapid and data-driven identification of untapped productivity opportunities, along with the continuous monitoring of manufacturing KPIs. This effectively supports both daily shop floor management and continuous improvement process (CIP) through data-centric approaches.

Process Carbon Footprint

IQA integrates the concepts of "lean" and "green": By analyzing the energy and CO2 footprint within the value stream, measures for enhancing efficiency and sustainability can be harmonized, resulting in holistic and comprehensive improvements.

Why our customers choose IQA

Value Streams at the Click of a Button

IQA creates a digital value stream twin from booking and planning data sourced from production-related IT systems, such as MES, BDE, or PPS/APS, without the need for manual value stream mapping. All process KPIs, including times, production outputs, inventory levels (WIP), scrap, emissions, and more, are automatically determined and integrated into the value stream.

Made for Manufacturing

Value stream visualizations and AI-guided analyses tailored for manufacturing are already integrated, enabling easy and immediate deployment by your team. There's no requirement for configuration or extensive expertise in AI and data mining.

Engineered for Complex Value Streams

Order and material flows are captured and analyzed at the push of a button, even in multi-stage and interconnected value streams. IQA utilizes Industrial Process Mining techniques specifically designed for production processes, along with machine learning algorithms, to provide in-depth insights into complex processes.

Data Quality is no Barrier

Through automated data quality checks, implausible booking data can be swiftly detected and excluded, enabling data-driven process analyses even with flawed source data. Additionally, the quality of the data can be specifically examined and analyzed.

Minimal Implementation Effort

IQA is a lightweight, cloud-based extension of your existing IT systems. Implementation typically takes only a few days and requires no additional infrastructure.

Customer Quote

“IQA gives us a deep insight into our production processes and offers analysis options that were previously only possible with great manual effort.”
