In this one-day workshop, the participant will learn more about the essentials of the Manufacturing Maturity Model. Maturity is all about processing or manufacturing capabilities. Through practical exercises, the participants get hands-on experience how to use the model.

The Manufacturing Maturity Model can be used to assess the maturity of (part of) the own organization. With the results of such an assessment, steps can be described to get to a higher maturity and therefore a better performance. With a higher manufacturing maturity, an organization is better capable to leverage the opportunities that the 4th Industrial Revolution will bring potentially.

    • Exercise 2 – ‘Prepare interview’: Prepare an interview focusing on one of the activities from the ISA-95 model to assess its maturity.
    • Exercise 3 – ‘Evaluate result’: For a group of ISA-95 activities the results of an assessment are provided. These are discussed in order to conclude about potential improvements (“What” and “Why”).
  • Next Steps
    • Exercise 4 – ‘Define next steps’: With the results from the previous exercise, next steps are defined to realize the identified improvements (“How”).
