SINGAPORE, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- Enterprise Singapore, a government agency that champions enterprise development, and Singapore Standards Council announced on Tuesday they have developed the Standards Mapping for Singapore Smart Industry Readiness Index (SmS).

The SmS maps relevant national and international standards to the Singapore Smart Industry Readiness Index, and provides the manufacturing industry with good practices to address key requirements for interoperability, reliability, safety and cybersecurity.

It is expected to make it easier for enterprises to identify relevant standards that can be used to upgrade their Industry 4.0 capabilities.

The first edition of the SmS is mapped to the eight pillars of focus of the Singapore Smart Industry Readiness Index, which include operations, supply chain, product lifecycle, automation, connectivity, intelligence, structure and management, and talent readiness. The index is an Industry 4.0 tool developed by the Singapore government to enable the transformation of industrial sectors, at both the enterprise and national levels.

The SmS will be reviewed and upgraded regularly to ensure its relevance to enterprises, according to a media fact sheet from both Enterprise Singapore and Singapore Standards Council.
