What are the government’s efforts to support the readiness of entrepreneurs to face the industrial revolution 4.0? here’s the explanation
Entering the industrial revolution 4.0, how ready are entrepreneurs in Indonesia to face these challenges? Until last year, this topic was still a hot topic of discussion as well as a PR for the government to have a special strategy.
In order to answer how entrepreneurs are prepared to face the industrial revolution 4.0 , there are actually many factors that need to be assessed. From there, the government then introduced indi 4.0 as an assessment indicator to measure the readiness of entrepreneurs to enter a new era.
Knowing Indi 4.0 as an Assessment Indicator Facing Industry 4.0
Facing the industrial era 4.0, the government does not remain silent to prepare entrepreneurs in Indonesia to be able to compete. Through the Ministry of Industry, Indonesia now has an assessment indicator to measure the extent to which entrepreneurs are ready to face industry 4.0.
Understand first the meaning of indi 4.0
According to the Head of the Industrial Research and Development Agency of the Ministry of Industry, indi 4.0 is a reference used by the government in assessing readiness for industry 4.0. On the other hand, this method is also one of the stages of implementing the Making Indonesia 4.0 program—Indonesia’s strategy to enter the 4.0 revolution.
Later, the results of the indi 4.0 measurement will be the government’s benchmark in determining strategies and policies to encourage the manufacturing sector to develop more towards industry 4.0.
Indi 4.0 uses an assessment score ranging from level 0 to level 4 with the following details:
- Level 0: the industry is not ready
- Level 1: industry enters early readiness
- Level 2: readiness to enter industry 4.0 at a moderate stage
- Level 3: readiness at maturity
- Level 4: industry has applied most of the concepts of industry 4.0
5 Pilar landed 4.0
Indi 4.0 has 5 pillars as a reference for assessment, including management and organization, products and services, people and culture, factory operations, and technology.
Of the 5 pillars that have been mentioned, they will be further broken down into 17 areas such as strategy and leadership, investment towards industry 4.0, intelligent machines, digitalization, and smart supply chain and logistics.
Entrepreneur’s Readiness to Face the Industrial Revolution 4.0
Through indi 4.0, the government hopes that entrepreneurs in Indonesia can carry out self-assessments to measure their ability to face the industrial revolution 4.0.
In April 2019, the Ministry of Industry held the 2019 Indonesia Industrial Summit (IIS) with the theme “Implementation of Making Indonesia 4.0 Towards the Top 10 World Economic Countries”.
The event was attended by 328 industrial companies from various fields who then carried out a self-assessment . The results of the self-assessment at that time were also validated by a jury consisting of representatives from the Ministry of Industry, McKinsey&Company, SAP Indonesia, Microsoft Indonesia, Diponegoro University Academics, and PT. Schneider Electric Indonesia.
Of the number of companies present at the event, the Head of the Industrial Research and Development Agency of the Ministry of Industry emphasized that Indonesia is quite ready to transform towards industry 4.0.
In October 2019 the Ministry of Industry released data related to the readiness of entrepreneurs to face the industrial revolution 4.0 . The data shows that the five priority sectors (textiles, food & beverage, chemical, electronics, and automotive) are approaching level 2 and level 3. Among the five sectors, the textile industry ranks first as the sector most ready to face industry 4.0.
Indonesia’s Readiness to Face Industry 4.0
Although the Ministry of Industry claims that Indonesia is quite ready to face industry 4.0, the fact is that according to the World Economic Forum Competitiveness Index , Indonesia’s readiness to face the industrial revolution 4.0 is still ranked 45th in the world.
The Minister of Finance – Sri Mulyani Indrawati, once revealed that Indonesia still has to work hard and needs a lot of time to face the industrial revolution 4.0 evenly. This is because Indonesia is a large country with a large population.
Some aspects that need to be improved include encouraging the development of digital infrastructure, online systems to facilitate business licensing, and no less important is preparing quality human resources.
This is a small picture to answer how entrepreneurs are ready to face the industrial revolution 4.0 . Talking about industry 4.0, every business actor is required to be able to take full advantage of technology. As a result, technology also affects how businesses work, one of which is the implementation of virtual offices that allow entrepreneurs to work anywhere and anytime.
