As house of SCM, we accompany your enterprise through all phases of your Supply Chain digitalization, from analyses and consulting services to the implementation, application management and support. The „Digital maturity measurement“ stands at the very beginning of this phase model. A lot of enterprises are not aware of their own digital status quo and can therefore not assess the potential of the digital transformation for their own enterprise.

What is the „Digital maturity measurement“?

The „Digital maturity measurement“ enables an overall assessment of the individual digital maturity of producing enterprises by applying a scientific interview study.

In order to answer the question of the digital status quo, the Fraunhofer research group developed a method to assess the digitalization degree of producing enterprises based on the preliminary work of the Otto-Friedrich-University Bamberg. The „Digital maturity measurement“ enables a holistic assessment of the individual digital maturity of producing enterprises by applying a scientific interview study. Building onto the analyzed initial state, reference points for subsequently following steps within the digitalization process, are identified.

SALT Solutions applies the "Digital maturity measurement" as cooperation partner of the Fraunhofer SCS

This is how the „Digital maturity measurement“ works

In preparation of the „Digital maturity measurement“, we paint a clear picture of the enterprise to be analyzed and cooperatively define general conditions (range, interview partner, procedure, etc.) for the maturity measurement.

Concerning your individual maturity measurement, we adapt the interview guideline to the specific context of the enterprise. We, for example, focus on a particular product, a product group or a business department. By covering different dimensions such as production processes, product offers, IT systems and the business strategy of the digital transformation we pursue a holistic measurement of the digital maturity.

Subsequently the Fraunhofer SCS evaluates all interviews and data. The digital maturity of your enterprise is defined and your enterprise is positioned in reference to the considered dimensions:



Based on the individual maturity we will give you impulses for advancing the digital transformation of your enterprise. For this purpose we rely on the broad application databank of the Fraunhofer SCS. All results are presented and cooperatively discussed in the scope of a workshop.
