The PhD project is the development of a maturity model for Smart Grids and related migration paths. With this model, network operators can determine the current situation and check which development steps they have to take per dimension (specific capabilities, process areas and other design objects) and in which sequence in order to achieve higher maturity levels in the dimensions. Special focus is placed on the investigation of the interdependencies and influences of the individual dimensions on each other, as well as their evaluation. The aim is to create a roadmap for network operators and to formulate recommendations for action, which maturity levels should be reached and which development steps require special monitoring due to their criticality. The model will be evaluated on the basis of two case studies.
