Implications of market and environmental changes have always influenced the industrial world. Combined with new technologies, the current changes are summarized under the term Industrie 4.0. Since the first announcement, Industrie 4.0 is one of the most discussed topics in research and industry. However, for companies in the industrial sector, it is a challenge to assess the implications of Industrie 4.0 for their organizations, and to decide whether and how to respond. Therefore, a methodology to transform an organization towards Industrie 4.0 is required. This paper provides a metamodel for the transformation of organizations towards Industrie 4.0 as well as the first technique of this method, a framework, to structure the implications of Industrie 4.0 and to identify Industrie 4.0 action fields as a first step towards Industrie 4.0 transformation. Furthermore, it provides an outlook how to implement the identified action fields systematically in existing process change management.
