Success-Story: BASF Coatings GmbH in Münster

Objective of the project:

The overall objective of the project was the creation of an Industrie 4.0 roadmap for a
production plant of the Coatings division of BASF at its headquarters in Münster:

■ Analysis and evaluation of the status quo

■ Development of an Industrie 4.0 target image individually for BASF Coatings

■ Derivation of an Industrie 4.0 roadmap and detailed description of the individual projects


The results were collected in a four-day on-site phase. The methodology of the Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index was presented in a kick-off event and the Industrie 4.0 goals developed jointly. The status quo was determined in an inspection of the plant, workshops and interviews. In the following week the employees of i4.0MC – Industrie 4.0 Maturity Center GmbH worked out the Industrie 4.0 Roadmap.
