Abstract— This research aims to study digital competencies for industrial production managers. The sample group in this research was 68 managers from industrial production.

The statistics used for data analysis were percentage, mean, and standard deviation. The results showed that digital performance for industrial production managers consists of 1) information management, 2) digital communication management, 3) digital knowledge management, and 4) assessing and solving digital problems. From seminars by group discussions with experts in digital competencies who needed and were necessary in the performance of production managers in industrial plants, it was found that the production managers needed to have two additional digital capabilities, which are 1) digital safety and 2) digital specific operations.
