Abstract

Project Innovative Smart Enterprise wants to improve the scientific understanding of average Croatian manufacturing enterprise, by promoting empirical, enterprise-level research on technological and non-technological process and organizational innovation. A special effort will be made to bridge the cultural and mentality gap between Croatian and EU manufacturing enterprises. In order to enable development of Croatian model of Innovative Smart Enterprise, it was mandatory to analyse current state of Croatian manufacturing industry. Evaluation of industrial maturity level research is carried out using Web questionnaires and interviews with 50 CEOs (chief executive officer) from 38 manufacturing enterprises. The problem of industrial enterprises evaluation is solved by a model that combines Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS).
