Driving innovative transformation in Switzerland

The partnership between INCIT and SSF is focused on collaborative objectives and joint activities aimed at bolstering industrial innovation and digital transformation in Switzerland. INCIT and SSF will closely collaborate to provide comprehensive training through the Certified SIRI Assessor (CSA) Programme. This initiative aims to equip industry professionals with the necessary skills and expertise to conduct Official SIRI Assessments (OSAs) as certified assessors and maintain high standards of assessment within Switzerland’s manufacturing industry.

Selected SSF members will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills, and capabilities as qualified CSAs, enabling them to conduct assessments efficiently and professionally. Additionally, INCIT and SSF will integrate SIRI concepts into SSF’s existing programmes, enriching the learning experience and practical application of Industry 4.0 and digital readiness concepts. The partnership will also engage in advisory and consultancy projects, leveraging SIRI as a framework and ManuVate as a platform to provide valuable insights and strategic direction to Swiss manufacturers.

As INCIT expands into Switzerland with SSF, we are committed to advancing Industry 4.0 readiness and digital transformation across Swiss industries. This partnership marks our 11th training and certification partnership worldwide, once again underscoring our dedication to bringing the global manufacturing community to new heights.
