Checklist: Digitalization for Manufacturing Companies

12 Building Blocks for a Successful Digital Transformation of Production

Where Does Your Company Stand in the Digital Transformation? Do the Check!


If German medium-sized-companies want to avert the threat of deindustrialization, the digitization of production must succeed. Whether manufacturing companies remain competitive in global competition and tap new potential for growth is decided in three central fields of action:

  • DIGITAL BACKBONE - for a reliable basis
  • OPERATIONS PLATFORM - for optimized processes
  • CONNECTED ECOSYSTEM - for new growth

The challenge: With the Digital Transformation, manufacturing companies are building on machine parks and legacy IT systems that have grown over decades.

To determine the route of your digitization journey, you need to know your current location.
