Manufacturers face operational and supply chain disruptions as countries around the world introduced lockdowns, travel restrictions and work suspension to limit the spread of COVID-19. The disruption is forcing manufacturers to rethink their operations and explore new technology to increase resilience and future-proof their business. A key technology that can help manufacturers to respond promptly to disruptions is the creation of Digital Twin through the implementation of Industry 4.0.
An ideal starting point would be the adoption of the Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI), an Industry 4.0 framework that supports manufacturers in starting, scaling, and sustaining their digitisation journey. SIRI has been recognised by the World Economic Forum as a global standard for Industry 4.0 transformation and has already being adopted by many global manufacturers in many sectors.
