 Standards for Industry 4.0
In January 2021, Singapore announced its Manufacturing 2030 vision, which saw the nation’s commitment to grow its manufacturing sector, by developing new Industry 4.0 technologies and supporting firms in Industry 4.0 adoption efforts.
Industry 4.0 (i4.0) transforms the way enterprises manufacture products. Using a network of computers and data exchanges, processes are automated, and production becomes more efficient. Standards are key to enable smart and autonomous technologies to operate in a seamless and secured way.
the Standards for Industry 4.0 tool is a guide on key standards, use cases and training courses to support companies in adopting i4.0 solutions in their business.
Standards help businesses develop resilience needed to transform their business under Industry 4.0, and to meet the challenges brought forth by COVID-19. It is evident that businesses which adopted digital solutions are better placed to ride out the crisis. Businesses can boost their business immunity against future crises through i4.0, using standards as tools.
Standards Mapping for Smart Industry Readiness Index (SmS)
To make it easier for enterprises to upgrade their capabilities on their Industry 4.0 journey,
ESG and the SSC, in collaboration with TÜV SÜD Digital Service developed a mapping of relevant national and international standards to the various dimensions of EDB’s Smart Industry Readiness Index (SmS). The world’s first standards mapping tool was launched in 2018, and covered areas such as smart manufacturing, robotics and automation.
The current version of SmS provides a baseline guide on some key published standards to help enterprises upgrade their capabilities based on the SSIRI framework. This mapping comprises ISO (International Organization for Standardization), IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and Singapore Standards. In the future this mapping will be reviewed to include new ISO, IEC and Singapore Standards and will be enhanced to include standards developed by other standards bodies.
