On behalf of INCIT, its partnering training and certification body TÜV SÜD conducted the training after INCIT was engaged by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to carry out the SIRI Training and Certification Programme, held from 22-26 April 2024.

New SIRI assessors empower manufacturers in Industry 4.0 transformations

After the training programme, industry professionals and consultants gain the critical knowledge, skills, and qualifications to drive Industry 4.0 success and spearhead digital transformation globally. The SIRI Training and Certification Programme offers individuals training and official accreditation to conduct digital maturity assessments, also known as Official SIRI Assessments (OSAs), on manufacturing facilities by leveraging SIRI’s framework and tools. Participants from DTI will soon undergo the certification portion of the programme to officially become Certified SIRI Assessors (CSAs).

CSA trainings continue to expand INCIT’s reach

As the momentum for SIRI continues to increase and more industry professionals become certified assessors, manufacturers can expect to be empowered with the insights they gain from a CSA. The OSA, along with the insights and knowledge provided by CSAs, can greatly benefit companies by increasing their Industry 4.0 readiness level with strategic and tailored transformation roadmaps that align with business goals and promote new, future-proof industry standards

Successful transformation requires a holistic understanding of future-ready manufacturing components, thus contributing to long-term viability. INCIT and the CSA Programme are dedicated to manufacturers unlocking Industry X.0 gains to accelerate digital and sustainable transformation. Embracing the three core elements of Industry 4.0: Process, Technology, and Organisation, SIRI allows manufacturers to renew their commitment to fostering innovation and excellence in manufacturing practices, ultimately driving sustainable economic growth.


A shared vision

The continuous collaboration between INCIT and TÜV SÜD display a shared vision and commitment to driving innovation and sustainable development throughout the globe. The expansion of SIRI trainings conducted by TÜV SÜD represents the increased pace of expansion, accelerating manufacturing transformation.



The International Centre for Industrial Transformation (INCIT) is an independent, non-government institute founded with the goal to spearhead global manufacturing transformation. Headquartered in Singapore, INCIT champions the Industry 4.0 journeys of manufacturers, developing and deploying globally referenced frameworks, tools, concepts and programmes for all manufacturing stakeholders to advocate for the global rise of smart and sustainable manufacturing.
