i4mma - Industry 4.0 Maturity Model Assessment. The purpose of this assessment is to help assess the maturity of an enterprise in its journey to Industry 4.0.
Industry 4.0 Maturity Model Assessment.
Evaluation of Current (as is) State.
Evolution to Target (to be) State.
The fourth Industrial Revolution is also not just about cost savings and efficiencies, it covers all aspects of industrial processes from production to supply chain, in many sectors from manufacturing to energy, from transportation to food. As with the previous industrial revolutions (mechanization, mass production, automation) over time, it becomes a story of survival, those companies that adopt new approaches and ways of doing things survive others do not. This assessment is designed to measure the Industry 4.0 maturity of an enterprise. It is based on a combination of Industry 4.0 research and practical experience.
If you are thinking that Industry 4.0 is about technology improving manufacturing, then you are missing an extremely key point. The purpose of this assessment is to help assess the maturity of an enterprise in its journey to Industry 4.0. This model is designed to cover many aspects from the basic (simple data collection) to the very advanced (lights-out factories run through AI).
Each company’s journey will be different, there is no right or wrong answer, and there is no defined endpoint. Each company will decide which pieces are appropriate to them given their individual circumstances and skills available. Do not expect every company to be “Advanced” in every category, very few will be, and even those that are good are likely to only be advanced in certain areas.
