Discover Your Smart Factory IQ
Smart factories have various areas of strengths and weaknesses, just as people do. Strengths bring the opportunity for positive differentiation, whilst weaknesses offer challenges to address in order to deliver consistently on expectation.

Many people like to measure their IQ to see how they compare in terms of being “Smart”— so why should we not do the same for the data-driven Smart assembly factory? This helps reveal both strengths and weaknesses, builds the roadmap for improvement and development, increases visibility of unique values, and eliminates risk derived from bottlenecks and inefficiencies. It is time to put our Smart, data-driven manufacturing operation to the test, ensuring preparedness as the industry transforms toward the elusive Industry 4.0.
