The fourth industrial revolution and accompanying digital transformation has progressed dramatically in recent years. The new digital revolution, mostly known as Industry 4.0, introduces impressive changes in the way enterprises and organizations are operating in a globalized world and altering the well-established lifestyle of a society. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to identify the current capabilities of companies in the context of Industry 4.0. Current literature on Industry 4.0 maturity and assessment models underlies the importance of a proper development strategy with exact steps to perform. Design principles address the issue of systematizing the measurable and attainable steps for further development. The present study contributes towards the identification of the research gap in the presence of core Industry 4.0 design principles during the development of maturity models. The analysis of 12 chosen maturity models by eight core design principles was provided. This research can serve as a starting point for the development of a complex strategic roadmap and thereby to provide a successful transition from traditional manufacturing into Industry 4.0.
