Standards for Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 (i4.0) transforms the way enterprises manufacture products. Using a network of computers and data exchanges, processes are automated and production becomes more efficient. Standards are key to enable smart and autonomous technologies to operate in a seamless and secured way.

Referencing 14 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) listed in the Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) Prioritisation Matrix, the Standards for Industry 4.0 tool guides you on the key standards to adopting i4.0 solutions in your business.

Standards can also help you develop business resilience needed to transform your business under Industry 4.0, or weather the challenges brought forth by COVID-19. It is evident that businesses which adopted digital solutions are better placed to ride out the crisis. You too can boost your business immunity against future crises through i4.0, using standards as tools.
