Global Smart Industry Readiness Index Initiative

SIRI: The Smart Industry Readiness Index

The Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) comprises a suite of frameworks and tools to help manufacturers – regardless of size and industry – start, scale and sustain their manufacturing transformation journeys. As the global measure for Industry 4.0 transformation maturity, SIRI helps to increase awareness and set targets that organizations can work towards. It also provides a structured framework for manufacturers to benchmark against their peers, identify their strengths and weaknesses to better prioritize development efforts and resources, and track their progress on their digital transformation journeys.  

Accelerating the Global Adoption of SIRI

The Forum, together with key industry partners, is accelerating the adoption of SIRI as the international standard for Industry 4.0 benchmarking and transformation. The goal is to catalyze the adoption of Industry 4.0 methodologies and technologies across the global manufacturing community, and provide quantitative indicators for international benchmarking. Today, SIRI has been adopted internationally by both multinational corporations and SMEs, with more than 850 manufacturing companies across more than 30 different countries having completed the Official SIRI Assessment (OSA). In 2022, the International Centre for Industrial Transformation (INCIT) was also established. This new non-governmental, not-for-profit organization will work closely with partners from both the public and private sectors to catalyse industrial transformation at a global scale to further catalyse the adoption of SIRI worldwide.

Manufacturing Transformation Insights Report

Through the Official SIRI Assessments (OSA), the Global SIRI Initiative has started building the world’s largest datasets and benchmarks on the current state of manufacturing. By democratizing this knowledge, we aim to fundamentally reform the manufacturing community’s approach to industrial transformation, from one that is ad-hoc and anecdote-based to one that relies on a standardized methodology supported by data. The 2022 edition of the insights report draws on data from manufacturers across 30 countries to provide:

1. New insights on the current state of industrial transformation across multiple manufacturing sectors,

2. Real-world case studies on how different manufacturing stakeholders are leveraging the SIRI programme to accelerate their digital transformation journeys.
