Also Industry 4.0 has given birth to several new hybrid concepts as well as several management operations to take advantage and become more efficient by using IoT and these new technologies. In our paper, we discuss the effect of Industry 4.0 on management and quality practices by answering the following questions based on the literature review: What is the positive effect of Industry 4.0 on quality improvement and operations management? How does Industry 4.0 integrate concepts (Lean, Six Sigma, Supply Chain ...) to create new paradigms?
