InfinityQS’s Doug Fair Named a 2017 Provider Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive

Chief operating officer honored for his innovative work in helping manufacturers use statistical analysis to turn quality data into actionable intelligence that drives global transformation
FAIRFAX, Va. – Feb. 24, 2017 – InfinityQS® International, Inc. (InfinityQS), the global authority on data-driven enterprise quality, announces Chief Operating Officer, Doug Fair, has been named a 2017 Provider Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. The leading supply chain magazine selected Fair from more than 300 entries for his innovative work in helping manufacturers embrace their quality data and turn it into actionable intelligence that drives strategic decision-making and global transformation.
Fair is a seasoned quality professional and Six Sigma Black Belt with nearly 30 years of manufacturing, analytics, and Statistical Process Control (SPC) experience. Since joining InfinityQS in 1997, Fair’s statistical expertise has greatly shaped the implementation and usage of InfinityQS’s Manufacturing Intelligence (MI) solution, ProFicient™, which is now used by more than 2,500 of the world’s leading manufacturers. Fair is also one of the manufacturing industry’s leading voices on leveraging the cloud to centralize local data and look beyond the plant floor to gain operational insights that can inspire exponential, global improvements.
Doug Fair, Chief Operating Officer, InfinityQS, said, “This recognition is a testament to InfinityQS’s commitment to help manufacturers re-imagine how they use quality data. For too long, companies have focused solely on reacting to quality issues in the supply chain or at the plant level. This creates a narrow view of quality as a problem, rather than the greater, transformative value it offers. With cloud-based quality software, companies can unify supply chain and plant data to attain enterprise visibility across operations, allowing decision makers to identify opportunities to improve quality and find significant cost savings company-wide. Thus, quality becomes a strong competitive advantage.”
The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and nonmanufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year’s list includes individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges—and Practitioner Pros, who do the same within their own companies.
 “Supply & Demand Chain Executive congratulates the 2017 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know recipients. The Pros to Know is a listing of exceptional corporate executives at manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises who are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies' supply chains for the significant challenges in the year ahead,” said Ronnie Garrett, Editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “We commend recipients for their achievements. Their accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage the supply chain for competitive advantage. Their efforts in developing the tools, processes and a knowledge base for supply chain transformation, as well as in promoting new approaches to supply chain enablement, earned these individuals a rightful place in this year's Pros to Know listing.”
