Abstract

In order to realize the full potential of Industry 4.0 in India, this study employs an integrated VIKOR-AHP method of MCDM to evaluate the rank of importance of various barriers for an in-depth understanding of these factors and bridge this research gap. This study identified 15 specific obstacles to successful Industry 4.0 implementation in India and thus this study is crucial for further understanding and adoption of Industry 4.0 in India. The results offer diverse implications for managers and professionals in India that will facilitate organizations for a socio-technical culture assimilation and to achieve their sustainable development goals. Further research can be directed in the way to reduce the impact of each of the 15 barriers as they can drastically impede the Implementation of Industry 4.0 in India.
