The SIRI DIY Self-Assessment

The Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) Self-Assessment Tool is a free guide for companies to self-evaluate the current state of their manufacturing factory or plant. Users can compare their results against manufacturing-wide or industry-specific benchmarks, to understand how their facilities fare vis-à-vis the broader manufacturing community and/or their industry peers. Companies that find the SIRI Self-Assessment Tool useful may take the next step to engage an official Certified SIRI Assessor to conduct a more thorough, neutral, and professional evaluation exercise.
