Managing Digital Transformation

Managing Digital Transformation

The objective of connected digitalization and Industrie 4.0 is to create a learning, agile company that, based on data, makes more reliable decisions faster and that is capable of continuously adapting itself to a changing environment, a dynamic market, and an increasing competition.

To achieve this goal, a mere focus on digitally networked information technologies is not sufficient. These make it possible to establish an increasingly broad database as a basis for data-based decisions, but there is also a need for companies to transform themselves in the organizational and culture spheres.

Transform your company with the help of Industrie 4.0 into the learning, constantly evolving company of tomorrow!

This is where the “acatech Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index” comes into play:

The Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index provides manufacturing companies with a methodological guideline which directs them on their individual path to becoming an agile company and outlines the necessary steps to achieve this goal. The Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index offers insights into the status quo of Industrie 4.0 capabilities from technological, organizational, and cultural perspectives in six maturity stages over all value-added processes.


Based on defined goals and an analysis of the status quo, a specific catalogue of measures can be derived which serves as a benefit-oriented roadmap. Companies are thus able to create a timetable for the implementation of Industrie 4.0 concepts and strategies.


The multi-dimensional maturity index supports in particular small to medium-sized companies in the status quo analysis and the development of their individual digitalization roadmap.

The Center’s services are targeted at manufacturing companies preparing for the digital transformation of their value-added processes as well as partners who are assisting in managing the transformation process. The Center supports the transformation process with the help of the acatech Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index. Its activities include the analysis of the status quo, the identification of measures, and the continuous enhancement of the Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index together with users and providers. A strong community supports companies in developing and implementing strategies for digital transformation.
