Smart Factory Maturity Level

The pace of Industry 4.0 adoption is uneven across different industries and companies. Companies both globally and locally are grappling with the concept of Industry 4.0 and the value it could bring. For these companies, questions such as

  • What is Industry 4.0, and
  • How can it benefit my company?
  • Where should I start?
  • What are my gaps today and where are the opportunities tomorrow?

remain unanswered.

The Smart Industry Readiness Index

The Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) Framework and an accompanying Assessment Matrix tool were therefore developed to address these challenges.

The SIRI Framework covers the 3 core building blocks (Process, Technology, and Organisation) critical to achieving future-ready facilities, and the Assessment Matrix tool is designed to strike a balance between technical rigour and practical applicability.

The Assessment Matrix also defines the end states and the intermediate steps needed for continuous improvement. Collectively, the SIRI Framework and Assessment Matrix tool aim to equip companies with practical knowledge about:

  • What Industry 4.0 is and the tangible benefits it could yield
  • The maturity levels of their organisations and facilities
  • How they can improve in a targeted and incremental manner

SIRI framework has been developed by the Singapore Economic Development Board in partnership with global testing, inspection, and certification company TÜV SÜD, and validated by an advisory panel of academic and industry experts.

The LEAD Framework

To help manufacturers characterise their transformation journeys, the SIRI framework uses a circular, continuous four-step process that all manufacturers can adopt in their approach towards Industry 4.0 transformation.
These steps, encapsulated in the LEAD framework, will help companies determine where to start, how to scale, and what they should do to sustain growth in a world powered by Industry 4.0.
