Managing Digital Transformation

Managing Digital Transformation

We support managing the digital transformation of manufacturing companies

The Industrie 4.0 Maturity Center is aimed at manufacturing companies that are facing the digital transformation as well as at companies that support this transformation. Because the question today is not whether a company should transform itself, but how it can shape this digital transformation.

Together with you we develop your individual strategy for the digital transformation – contact us for further information.


Why digitization?

The drivers of digitization are above all:

  • increasing competition in which data is progressively becoming an asset
  • rising demands on delivery time and individuality of the products
  • changing customer needs that require services instead of or in addition to products

Markets will become volatile and competitiveness will depend more and more on making better decisions faster. The goal of connected digitization and Industrie 4.0 is therefore the learning, agile company that is able to adapt to changing requirements.

We start and plan this process together with you, not only looking at the information technologies in your company, but also incorporating the structural areas of organization, culture and resources.

14.11.2017 | The Maturity Index as component of the Singapur Smart Industry Readiness Index

On 13th of november the Singapur Smart Industry Readiness Index was released which uses components of the Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index.

Foundation of our work: the acatech Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index

The acatech Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index, which we have developed to a considerable extent, serves manufacturing companies as a methodical guide to individually design the way to an agile company and to derive the necessary steps. In the four structural areas mentioned above, the current Industrie 4.0 capability of a company can be modeled in six levels of maturity. Comparing these capabilities with the previously defined goals will result in a catalog of measures defining the next steps in an individual Industrie 4.0 roadmap, that incoorporates the time frame, the sequence and the budget.

From research for industry:

You can find the study on the acatech Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index in German, Englishand Russian in the Downloads section.
