The first step was to analyse ZF’s 220 plants worldwide utilizing the Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index platform. After determining the status quo, we derived tailored roadmaps for the plants as well as overarching roadmaps on BU, Division and Corporate level. Additionally, a set-up of System House 4.0 that coordinates activities across divisions and provides solutions globally was implemented.
The results show that a now close cooperation ensures buy-in from all stakeholders and an efficient roll-out across all plants. Furthermore, the core team can now provide required solutions with high synergy effects.
