21 Oct Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index – Managing the Digital Transformation of Companies

National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech)
2017
Digitally connected industrial production promises faster and more efficient processes – in development and production, services, marketing & sales and for adapting entire business models. Agility and the ability to make changes in real-time are key strategic characteristics of successful companies in Industrie 4.0. To acquire these features, it is necessary to create a continuously expanding data base. However, a company’s organisational structure and culture also play an important part in determining whether this data’s potential is leveraged effectively. This acatech STUDY describes a new tool for helping manufacturing enterprises to forge their own individual path towards becoming a learning, agile company. The acatech Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index is a six-stage maturity model that analyses the capabilities in the areas of resources, information systems, culture and organisational structure that are required by companies operating in a digitalised industrial environment. The attainment of each development stage promises concrete additional benefits for manufacturing companies. The model’s practical application was validated in a medium-sized company.

21 Oct The Way to the German Academy of Science and Engineering

National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech)
2011
Against the backdrop of the long-standing prehistory of the scientific positioning of engineering sciences, the publication presents the founding phase of the German Academy of Science and Engineering, which began in the middle of the 1990s, its players and the social framework conditions. Alongside the investigation of the position of engineering sciences within the Academies of Sciences since the onset of the 20th century, the discussion about the self-conception of the engineering sciences is traced, as well as an examination made of the erratic relationship of the engineering sciences to the state in the 20th century. Various aspects of the work of acatech on its way to an independent German Academy of Science and Engineering are elaborated, and the institutional development of the Academy up to the beginning of the presidency of Henning Kagermann and Reinhard Hüttl is presented.

The Royal Academy of Engineering held a series of three debates between October 2010 and January 2011 in which Fellows of the Academy, senior engineers and other interested people from the government and policy, business, and academic communities were invited to consider and then to vote on motions that covered important issues affecting UK competitiveness in international markets.   The three debates covered wide-ranging issues affecting the UK’s competitiveness in the global economy, and each was self-contained. The points raised in the individual debates are summarised in this report.  The report also records a number of themes and common threads that emerged from the debates, reflecting wider concerns and areas where further investigation might be helpful.
