One of the main problems in the implementation of Industry 4.0 is the assessment of the added technical and economic value of the new digital and other technological opportunities. This can already be observed during the elaboration of solution alternatives during the development of new industry 4.0 work systems. In order to support the developers of these systems in their decision-making, this contribution introduces a quantitative evaluation approach based on the combination of an extension of the CPM/PDD approach with an industry 4.0 maturity model and an identification scheme for process losses.

Keywords: Industry 4.0, Decision making, Evaluation
