Recent years have seen order of magnitude improvement in knowledge of quark mass parameters — these advances have been due largely to theoretical and computational advances in lattice QCD simulations. Present day calculations are able to obtain percent-level uncertainties; reducing these even further will be important for precision Higgs studies and BSM searches. I will highlight three separate strategies being used in state-of-the-art lattice calculations, review the current status of results, and discuss the outlook for improvements in the future.
