The food industry is an important branch of production in every industrialised economy, whose products are subject to constant adaptation driven by global competition and high consumer expectations. The long-term competitiveness of a company depends heavily on its agility to adapt to this change. Low margins on the sales side cause high cost pressure and high internal production expectations but at the same time conflict with an increasing number of SKUs and decreasing batch sizes. Furthermore, there are critical regulatory requirements for product safety, quality and traceability as well as customer needs such as nutritional trends or allergies.

acatech Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index

Since the publication of the acatech STUDY in 2017, the Industry 4.0 Maturity Index has proven to be a quasi-standard in the producing industry for a structured digital transformation. The diverse uses of the index range from the creation of systematic roadmaps for the digital transformation of individual production sites to cross-site synchronization and a global digitization strategy. Furthermore, the Index can be used to measure and control the progress of digital transformation and to conduct technical due diligence for company acquisitions.
