Abstract Industry 4.0 is the oncoming ubiquitous new manufacturing technology. It is the current trend and age of new production process, of the smart factory where machines can communicate with each other as well as human beings. There is no doubt implementation of Industry 4.0 in the Ready Made Garments (RMG) sector of Bangladesh is the most effective step for inspiring the manufacturing companies and a great symptom to rise up economic spectrum. Nevertheless, the academics and policy makers’ levels are still trying to contribute a complete guideline for the sector overcoming the barriers to meet with main stream of the new world. The study identified four main hurdles of Lack of Policy Makers’ & Corporate Leaders’ Support; Lack of ICT Based Knowledge; Ability to Meet up Initial Cost (Infrastructure & Smart Machineries cost) and Availability of Cheaper labour through review studies in RMG for implementing Industry 4.0 strategy. These main criteria for barriers are evaluated and analyzed by using an Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) observation and the relative weights and ranking of the criteria are calculated. For obtaining data from experts a set of pairwise questionnaire is developed. After analyzing the collected data a pairwise comparison matrix is formed for Criteria Weight Calculation and developed a consistency index and ratio checking system.

Keyphrases: Analytical Hierarchy Process, Barriers, Consistency Index and Ratio, Digitalized factory, Industry 4.0, Keywords—, pairwise comparisons, Ready Made Garments
