2Industrie 4.0 Maturity ScanThe manufacturing industry is in a process of rapid change.Global powers are shifting markets, while technologies anddata are transforming the way organizations work and makedecisions. In this time of constant pressure, companiesmust keep pace with increasing competition and meet therequirements of their customers. One thing is certain. Themanufacturers will only meet these challenges when theybreak with traditional structures, explore new paths and takerisks.Digitalization is the fuel for change and successful persistenceon the market. To pursue digitalization initiatives and raisehidden potentials in a directed and consistent approach,companies need to know their current situation. Additionally,competitive advantages are given when companies are awareof their status in the transformation process and are able tocompare with industry leaders.The Industrie 4.0 Maturity Scan was created with the currentneeds of the manufacturing industry in mind.This quick check enables manufacturing companies to capturethe status quo, retrieve benchmarks to competitors, and developan Industrie 4.0 vision. The underlying questionnaire features 77questions, which are divided into three operational challenges (AgileOrganization, Digital Shopfloor, Integrated Business Processes).These challenges describe scenarios that every manufacturingcompany is confronted with in different departments andprocesses. In this way, the current situation in terms of digitalizationcan be identified in order to reveal future potential.Over 70 analyses with extensive insights have already beenconducted. First results show that the majority of companies arestill in the early stages of digital transformation. These companies,however, can now focus on a strategic development by making useof our online scan.654321ØOverallStructured CommunicationDigital CapabilityResourcesInformation ProcessingIntegration of IT SystemsInformation SystemsOrganic InternalOrganizationDynamic Collaborationin Value NetworksOrganizational StructureSocial CollaborationWillingness to ChangeCultureThe displayed benchmark is a part of the Industrie 4.0 Maturity Scan report.

4Industrie 4.0 Maturity Scan approach1. Pre-survey3. AnalysisIn order to carry out a substantial benchmark, company and siteinformation are captured. In addition, main pain points, ongoingactivities, and targets in regard to Industrie 4.0 are queried.This query gives us the opportunity to respond to individualrequirements in a personal feedback discussion.The questionnaire contains a total of 77 questions and is offeredas a self-check. You can complete everything independentlyfrom anywhere. The check is performed by answering thequestions with up to 6 possible answers, which correspond toour 6 maturity levels. The questions are systematically structuredand assigned to the operational challenges.2. Scenarios4. FindingsIn order to create a better understanding of the questions, threescenarios are presented which every manufacturing companycan identify with. All scenarios show typical challenges thatcompanies have to face (Agile Organization, Digital Shopfloor,Integrated Business Processes). All these challenges can beimproved by Industrie 4.0 measures.The scan is provided via our online platformThe basic report with the results will be provided after thecompletion of the questionnaire without any further effort.

Thefirst two levels “Computerization” and “Connectivity” describethe basics of digitization (Industrie 3.0) where data processingsystems are introduced and connected. The levels “Visibility” and“Transparency” describe the visualization and decision-makingbased on data as well as creating an understanding of why anevent occurred. The levels “Predictability” and “Adaptability”describe the prediction of events and the independent action ofthe systems.360 view on Industrie 4.0The Structuring Forces indicate collectively the structure of anorganization.
