Building the maturity model for a sustainable collaborative manufacturing industry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


This paper discovers the research path when testing the ManuMaturity model and upgrading it to guide manufacturing companies beyond Industry 4.0, towards data sharing within a supply chain, to an open innovation ecosystem and towards sustainable manufacturing. The original ManuMaturity model has five maturity levels: traditional factory, modern factory, agile factory, agile cognitive factory and agile cognitive industry. Together with the seven dimensions—infrastructure, data, customer, business model, employee and sustainability—it was implemented as an open self-assessment web tool. The tool was tested with a group of manufacturing companies and the feedback was gathered both via the discussions with the manufacturing companies and the service providers. In this paper, the insights are presented as well as the potential additional elements of the extended maturity model.
