The transition to Industrie 4.0 is often perceived as a huge challenge, particularly for companies with low resources. Retrofitting 4.0, the process which makes existing equipment and software able to adopt Industrie 4.0 technology, may be the low-cost solution. In fact, most of the global lighthouse projects for Industrie 4.0 were created by transforming pre-existing operations (brownfield).

Furthermore, adoption of Industrie 4.0 technologies can streamline tasks performed by humans. This opens up opportunities for upskilling and reskilling employees in readiness for better, more human-friendly tasks.

This Quick Guide highlights four crucial elements that are relevant to small and medium-sized industrial enterprises making the successful transition to Industrie 4.0 in the Indonesian context.
