The Ministry of Industry has launched a standard which measures the preparedness of a company to apply the new digital industrial technology, also known as Industry 4.0. This standard is referred to as Indonesia Industry 4.0 Readiness Index (INDI 4.0). The index is based on studies conducted by McKinsey & Company which is also used by member states of the World Economic Forum.
The government will socialize the index to stakeholders and industrial parties through the Indonesia Industry Summit 2019 as the main event which will better explain the details of such index. The government has recorded 326 companies which have been assessed based on the index.
The Minister of Industry, Airlangga Hartanto, stated that overall, Indonesian industry is prepared to apply the Industry 4.0 based on the results obtained from the index assessment. The most prepared industry based on the results of INDI 4.0 is the engineering, procurement and construction industry with the INDI level of 2.74. This industry is followed by the textile industry with the INDI level of 2.51. The industry with the lowest preparedness level is the metal industry with the INDI level of 1.57.
