The Center for Quality and Productivity Improvement (CQPI) is an interdisciplinary research center in the University of Wisconsin-Madison's College of Engineering.

Sparked by the international quality revolution, CQPI was developed with a renewed focus on customers and processes. Since its establishment by the late Professors George E.P. Box and William G. Hunter, CQPI has been at the forefront in the development of new techniques for improving the quality of products and processes. Its work applies principles of human factors and systems engineering to improve the quality and safety of work processes, working life, and health care.
