Has your Industry 4.0 transformation stalled?

Planning and executing an Industry 4.0 transformation is no small undertaking. It requires companies to invest significant resources into various areas such as conducting research, engaging solution providers, running cost-benefit analyses, and monitoring the progress of projects.

We aim to help manufacturers along this journey by educating them on the 101 of Industry 4.0 and providing concepts that form a useful foundation for future action. The suite of the Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) frameworks and tools will bolster companies’ confidence, reduce their uncertainty, and encourage them to take the next step towards implementation.

SIRI's Approach

Transforming a manufacturing facility is not a one-off exercise, but a continuous and repetitive process. This is encapsulated in the LEAD framework — a continuous four-step process that all manufacturers can adopt in their approach towards Industry 4.0 transformation.

Key benefits:

An official SIRI assessment helps manufacturers:

  • learn the terminology and underlying technologies associated with Industry 4.0 and their application to drive tangible business benefits
  • evaluate the existing Industry 4.0 maturity level at their company
  • architect and deploy applicable solutions to key areas identified in the assessment

Prioritized areas of focus are recommended along with a roadmap for deployment based on the current state of predominant cost drivers, essential business objectives, key performance indicators (KPI’s), and a comparison to industry benchmarks
