Kemenperin will build the Digital Capability Center (IndoTelko)

JAKARTA (IndoTelko) – The Ministry of Industry will establish the Digital Capability Center (DCC) to increase productivity and competitiveness of the manufacturing sector in the industrial era 4.0.

“The plan is being conceptualized, and in the next two years we will have DCC in collaboration with multinational management consulting firm McKinsey. This facility needs to be built along with efforts to develop the industry towards technology 4.0, because domestic devices, networks, and applications (DNA) need to be built, “said Minister of Industry Airlangga Hartarto in Jakarta on Friday (24/5).

Airlangga said that the construction of DCC would also collaborate with a technology research and development institution in Taiwan called the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI). “The model might be similar to the DCC that already exists in Singapore. Further cooperation between ITRI and the Ministry of Industry, we continue to follow up, “he said.

It is hoped that the development of the DCC is expected to be utilized by industry players who have not implemented digitalization, especially the small and medium industry sector (IKM). Towards the industrial era 4.0, the Ministry of Industry has appointed a lighthouse industry for five leading sectors set out in Making Indonesia 4.0.

“Five major sectors prioritizing industrial development 4.0 are using sector-based approaches. In this sector, smart factory will be implemented with the implementation of internet of things (IoT), big data, digital printing and other tools that are part of 4.0 industry, “he explained.

Several companies that have become models in the implementation of industry 4.0, namely (1) PT. Indolakto for the food and beverage industry sector, (2) PT. Pupuk Kaltim for the chemical industry sector, (3) PT. Pan Brothers, Tbk for the textile and clothing industry, (4) PT. Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia for the automotive industry sector, and (5) PT. Hartono Istana Teknologi for the electronics industry sector.

These companies are recipients of the INDI 4.0 award initiated by the Ministry of Industry. “Indonesia Industry 4.0 Readiness Index (INDI 4.0) is a benchmark index for industry and government in measuring the level of industry readiness to transform towards industry 4.0 in Indonesia,” explained the Minister of Industry.

The Ministry of Industry believes, the application of the digital economy will be able to create new opportunities.
