German manufacturing companies have to face new challenges under the current develop-ments of Industry 4.0. Industrial production processes are changing because of an increasing digitalization. Individualized products and adaptive manufacturing systems can be realized but they question the competitive and leading position of German companies on the world market. Flexible and customer focused production processes seem to be one way to stay competitive. As a consequence, the Quality Management is challenged to find solutions that guarantee high product and process quality. In this regard, the Total Quality Management points out that qualified employees are important. Nevertheless, it is difficult to integrate employees into the changing and complex production field. Therefore, a new Quality Management approach is required. Augmented Reality has the potential to visualize context-sensitive information during the working process. Manufacturing Execution Systems can provide results of analysis for quality-based operations. These two approaches are merged into a concept by using a mobile AR-device to support quality-based operations in the working process. A structured procedure was designed within the concept that realizes a usable mobile AR-System for the use in the production. The focus is on combining the quality-based operations with the existing competences of the employee as well as on the technical implementation of Augmented Reality on a mobile device. As a result, the AR-System enables the employee to control and improve the product and process quality by initiating quality controlling cycles. As a consequence, manufacturing companies can remain their long-term competitive. Moreover, it opens up possibilities to qualify the employees for future quality-based operations. All in all, the competitiveness of manufacturing companies is secured by continuously improving the competences and company processes.
