Maturity model for determining digitalization levels within different product lifecycle phases

Maintaining pace with ongoing changes due to digitalization is challenging for manufacturing companies. For successful implementation of digitalization, manufacturing companies must consider their

Digital supply chain model in Industry 4.0

A conceptual model is presented that defines the essential components shaping the new Digital Supply Chains through the implementation and acceleration of Industry 4.0 and provides a novel and comprehensive overview of the new concepts and components driving the nascent and current DSCs.

Assessment of Industry 4.0 Maturity Models by Design Principles

The fourth industrial revolution and accompanying digital transformation has progressed dramatically in recent years. The new digital revolution, mostly known as Industry 4.0, introduces impressive

Literature review on maturity models for digital supply chains

Goal: Today, digital technologies have significant effects on supply chains as companies explore and exploit their opportunities. Digital supply chains promise advantages over traditional ones. A

Development of an Industry 4.0 maturity model for the delivery process in supply chains

The proposed model is the first to explicitly consider the delivery process and complements available approaches that focus on the manufacturing process, and shows that the widely used Supply Chain Operations Reference model can serve as the basis for additional process maturity models.

Digital Transformation of Industrial Companies: What is Management 4.0?

The Industry 4.0 or also known as the 4th Industrial Revolution and its integral part in the digitalization of manufacturing companies cause big interest to researchers around the world. But as to

A PSS Maturity Model (PSSMM) is developed to guide organizations in developing appropriate capabilities and refers to 5 focus areas, 20 capability dimensions, and associated capabilities.

Digitization in Outbound Logistics – Application of an Industry 4.0 Maturity Model for the Delivery Process

Purpose Available maturity models in the context of Industry 4.0 primarily focus on manufacturing processes. A research gap exists with regard to outbound logistics. This paper applies a maturity

Role of CDOs in the Digital Transformation of SMEs and LSEs - An Empirical Analysis

The present work is based on various case studies analyzing what role the CDO plays in the framework of digital transformation in various company sizes (SMEs and LSEs) and the responsibility, specific obligations and rights and the role – namely, functions and tasks – and the change in the role have been examined since taking over the position.

Digital Transformation Projects Maturity and Managerial Competences: A Model and Its Preliminary Assessment

This paper discusses some of these maturity models and motivates a new one focused on Digital Transformation maturity in the direction of filling this gap, which is then presented in its conceptual design and empirical assessment.



Cyber-physical systems as the technical foundation for problem solutions in manufacturing, logistics and supply chain management

relevant applications against the background of the technological trends as well as potential areas of interest for future research, both raised from the economic practice's perspective, are identified.

Maturity models in business process management

BPM maturity models provide limited guidance for identifying desirable maturity levels and for implementing improvement measures, and the design principles for a prescriptive use are hardly met.

The extended enterprise: a decade later

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to review the state of the art in extended enterprise (EE) thinking. Design/methodology/approach – The approach used the 2004 book, The Extended Enterprise, as

Developing Maturity Models for IT Management

A generic and consolidated procedure model for the design of maturity models is proposed, which provides a manual for the theoretically founded development and evaluation of maturity model development.

Closing the Loop: Evaluating a Measurement Instrument for Maturity Model Design

An evaluation strategy is devised, and a close match between the model's quantitative maturity assessments and the maturity levels from the qualitative analyses indicates that the MI correctly assesses BI maturity.

Understanding the Main Phases of Developing a Maturity Assessment Model

Practitioners and academics have developed numerous maturity models for many domains in order to measure competency. These initiatives have often been influenced by the Capability Maturity Model.

Assessing Organizational Capabilities: Reviewing and Guiding the Development of Maturity Grids

This paper presents both a reference point and guidance for developing maturity grids by reviewing 24 existing maturity grids and suggesting a roadmap for their development, which encompasses four phases: planning, development, evaluation, and maintenance.

A Balanced Approach to Developing the Enterprise Architecture Practice

An architecture maturity model is introduced that enables us to identify strong and weak points in an organization’s architecture practice and to consequently set priorities for improvement.

The use of maturity models/grids as a tool in assessing product development capability

The origins of the maturity grid are traced, methods of construction and application are reviewed and the concepts of process or capability maturity are applied.

The Design of Focus Area Maturity Models

A generic method for developing focus area maturity models based on both extensive industrial experience and scientific investigation is presented and two examples of focus area mature models are shown.
