As pioneers of the SIRI framework in Belgium, we use our extensive experience in manufacturing to assess your organisation's digital maturity.‍

About

Our SIRI assessment service helps manufacturing organisations kickstart their digital transformation journeys using the Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI), a globally recognized framework for assessing digital maturity. As pioneers of the framework in Belgium, we combine our vast experience in manufacturing with a unique vendor-neutral approach to ensure objective assessments.

What we do

Our goal is to help you identify strengths and areas for improvement so you can make informed decisions about the next steps in your digital transformation strategy. Advising on matters as important as these requires a detailed analysis. In this case, a good preparation is more than half the work.

That’s why our SIRI assessment service covers sixteen dimensions of digital maturity across the three pillars of Industry 4.0: processes, technology, and organisation. Among many other aspects, these pillars cover horizontal and vertical integration, automation and connectivity, and strategy and governance.

Each of those sixteen dimensions receives a score based on the TIER calculation. This system calculates an organisation's priorities based on four aspects:  

  • Today's state
  • Impact to the bottom line
  • Essential business objectives
  • Relative position to the best-in-class

The resulting detailed scorecard will allow you to compare your organisation to competitors and inform the rest of your digital transformation. It is also the perfect starting point for our other services.

How we do it

We offer a comprehensive and holistic approach, so your organisation will be perfectly prepared for its digital transformation journey. Our assessments take just five days spread over two to four weeks, during which we will cover your organization's entire digital maturity in four phases:

  1. During the preparation phase, we analyse your organisation's average digital maturity level and the specificities of your industry and market position. We then discuss our findings with you in a briefing call to identify your priorities and determine the next steps.


  1. In the assessment workshop phase, we hold a series of dedicated conversations to assess your current digital maturity level. This is followed by a factory visit where we cross-reference the input gathered in the conversations with the shop floor.

  1. After processing the data gathered in the previous phases, we conduct one or more workshops in the gap analysis phase to point out areas for improvement. We prioritise these areas based on your planning horizon to provide you with a roadmap to digital transformation.

  1. In the final debrief session, we summarise the assessment's findings, reports, and graphs, along with practical recommendations for moving forward. You will gain an in-depth understanding of your current digital maturity and receive a clear roadmap for improving it.

Why invest in SIRI assessments?

If you want to take your organisation to the next level of digital transformation, a SIRI assessment is the way to go. With its holistic approach, SIRI leaves no aspect of your digital transformation behind. The TIER calculation expands the assessment scores with other strategic and budgetary concerns to arrive at a total impact value, which gives you a head start on your competitors.  

But why specifically choose SIRI over other frameworks? Because it's relatively new, it can be used by pretty much any organisation. With Industry 4.0 dealing with so many aspects of organisational transformation, it can be challenging to grasp in its entirety. SIRI can help your organisation to get a bird’s eye view and define priorities thanks to its structured approach.  

Because a SIRI assessment gets everyone to speak the same language, it creates a shared understanding of what smart industry and operational excellence mean for your organisation. And thanks to the emphasis on structure, SIRI assessments are often finished in a month or less, meaning you can get the insights you need to make informed decisions about your digital transformation journey quickly.
