The Index comprises 3 layers. At the top are the 3 fundamental building blocks of Industry 4.0: Process, Technology, and Organization. Underpinning these building blocks are 8 pillars of focus, which then map onto 16 dimensions of assessment. For each of the 16 dimensions, the Index provides an assessment matrix which companies can use to evaluate their current processes, systems and structures. The assessment matrix also doubles as a step-by-step improvement guide, as each dimension provides intermediate steps needed for companies to progress.
