About Workshop

In the current VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world’s situation, the industry is forced to improve its business and operation agility to reach operational excellence. Enhancement of business processes, technology implementation, and organization development that tailored to the company’s vision and challenges are keys for such improvement. A strategy that comprehensively considers these keys is required and shall be agreed by all stakeholders within the company.

The fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, has brought possibilities of advance digital technologies to be utilized and accelerate the improvement, so called Digital Transformation (DX).

Selecting suitable technologies shall be aligned with the strategy. Due to possible limited resource owned by the company priority must be made, targeting the most impactful opportunities to the business and operation.

Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI) is an assessment tools to evaluate industry—that has production activity, manufacturing—readiness and maturity before it starts its Digital Transformation journey. It supports initial strategy development by comprehensively consider company’s process, technology, and organization, and pinpoint several focus areas as improvement priority. The result will be a starting point to build the journey’s roadmap for stakeholders that will be used as guidance to start, develop, and sustain the company’s Digital Transformation.

Supported by certified SIRI assessor and global technology consultant, we would like to propose to PT Badak LNG to conduct SIRI Digital Transformation Assessment that will bring following benefits:

  • Business vision alignment within internal stake holders;
  • Asses current state of related business process, technology, and organization;
  • Identify the gaps between current state and the vision as well as other benchmarks;
  • Identify Digital Transformation priority that considers Process, Technology and Organization;
  • Input and clear guide to develop Digital Transformation detail roadmap and strategy.

The report will be Official SIRI Report that will be delivered with the priority and include the assessor’s insight about potential improvement. The information can be used to begin functional detail study to develop strategic roadmap prior to the implementation project.
