Digitalization is increasingly imperative for companies that want to achieve a competitive advantage, which represents the transformation of traditional processes into digital processes by incorporating Industry 4.0 technologies. It is also known that to move towards this digital transformation it is necessary that the company already presents a good level of maturity in terms of lean philosophy, so the latter can be seen almost as a prerequisite. For a company to be successful in this digital transformation journey, it must develop a roadmap for digitalization, which guides it until it reaches the final goal, and there are already some guidelines to develop them. Therefore, by analyzing the literature it is possible to notice that there are not many technological tools that support this roadmap yet. This work contributes to filling the gap in the literature by describing a tool developed through the Microsoft Power Platform software that supports the roadmap for digital transformation in the collection and selection of processes, to develop an action plan aligned with the company's long-term strategy. This tool was then tested by the potential users, to validate the model, know the level of receptivity of the application by users, and understand the usefulness of the tool.
