CERTIFIED SMART INDUSTRY READINESS INDEX (SIRI) ASSESSOR PROGRAMME

WHAT IS THE CERTIFIED SMART INDUSTRY READINESS INDEX (SIRI) ASSESSOR PROGRAMME ABOUT?

The Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) was created by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) in partnership with a network of leading technology companies, consultancy firms, and industry, and academic experts. SIRI comprises a suite of frameworks and tools to help manufacturers – regardless of size and industry – start, scale, and sustain their manufacturing transformation journeys. SIRI covers the three core elements of Industry 4.0: Process, Technology, and Organisation. 

A) Training Course

The SIRI Assessor Training Course will equip industry practitioners with the requisite industry knowledge and skills to become a Certified SIRI Assessor (“CSA”). The curriculum covers content on Industry 4.0, SIRI frameworks and tools, business consulting concepts, and the methodology for conducting an Official SIRI Assessment. The SIRI Assessor Training Course is conducted over 40 hours of classroom training. TÜV SÜD is an Approved Training Provider to offer the SIRI Assessor Training Course.

Industry practitioners looking to become a Certified SIRI Assessor (CSA), and in-house Subject Matter Experts from manufacturing companies, who are keen to better understand the frameworks and tools used in the SIRI Assessment to conduct internal, informal assessments for their own firms are welcome to enrol for the SIRI Assessor Training Course.
