In connection with the application of technologies / principles of Industry 4.0, industrial practice also requires a more consistent application of the principles or principles of quality management. This applies to all areas of industry, but it is most pronounced in the automotive industry, engineering industry, metallurgical industry, metallurgy, chemical industry, electrical industry, etc.The paper focuses on the current requirements of quality management in industrial practice, including metallurgy and materials engineering. High quality requirements in the field of metallurgy are inevitable, as iron, steel and cast iron products are used in many areas of industrial production, but especially in engineering, respectively. automotive industry. Growing competition in the market and increasing customer requirements in today's society are forcing companies to apply the principles of quality management more rigorously. Quality management ensures the quality of products and requirements for the products in the field of metallurgy and materials engineering. New technologies make it possible to improve the production process, participate in research into the properties of materials and quality management serves as a set of coordinated activities related to quality in the context of the functioning of the entire company. In industry 4.0, products made of iron, steel, cast iron and also plastics, in line with technological advances in IT and electrical engineering, will be increasingly used to develop and improve industrial production. Introduction of elements, resp. Technology 4.0 in connection with the increasing demands on the quality of products and materials also requires changes in the functioning of industrial enterprises and significantly affects the management of human resources.Keywords: Metallurgy, quality management, material engineering, Industry 4.0.
