The Smart Industry Readiness Index is a framework that strikes a good balance by offering practical applicability while maintaining both conceptual and technical rigour.

SIRI gives clear orientation to manufacturers on what Industry 4.0 means and how they can initiate their transformation journey. The Assessment Matrix is a world’s first Industry 4.0 tool that is developed by the government for national-wide transfromation of industrial sectors. Strongly aligned with Industry 4.0 and other global manufacturing initiatives, it has the potential to be the global standard for the future of manufacturing.

SIRI allows our manufacturing teams to take stock of what we are doing well and where we can do better. This forms a good basis to build a shared Industry 4.0 vision and strategy, enabling us to take decisive action in initiating a multi-year transformation journey.
MR HASHIM BABA
Plant Manager, Becton Dickinson Singapore
While the term Industry 4.0 was created several years ago, many manufacturing companies, particularly SMEs, remain unfamiliar with it. SIRI is an intuitive and realistic reference framework which is useful for all industrial companies, both big and small, to not only learn these new concepts but to also apply them to our facilities.
MR DESMOND GOH
Director, People Bee Hoon Factory
As part of our Smart Enterprise program, we have been investing in many initiatives to achieve significant improvements in speed, productivity, and quality. Here, we see SIRI as a useful tool to help us to unlock maximum value by not only pushing us to investigate new dimensions that were not considered previously, but also allowing us to pursue our Industry 4.0 strategy in a more targeted fashion.
MR LAURENT FILIPOZZI
Site Head, Infineon Plant, Singapore
Often, companies tend to focus excessively on shop floor automation and under-invest in equally important areas such as process design and workforce competency. SIRI serves as a useful counter-check to ensure that no dimensions are overlooked, in order to capture maximum value from any Industry 4.0 initiatives.
MR YEOH PIT WEE
Director for Manufacturing Operations, Rockwell Automation
Like us, many companies have already started their transformation journey. Beyond addressing the operational concerns today, SIRI is a useful framework to also guide our future decisions to deliver sustained impact. It also ensures that we’re always moving in the right direction and focusing on the things that matter.
