With the continuous development of Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing and the implementation and transformation of industrial 4.0, more and more enterprises in Asia, especially in China, are accelerating the transformation of intelligent manufacturing industry.
However, in the face of the transformation from manufacturing industry to automation, intellectualization and digitalization, how can factory enterprises rapidly transform and grasp the core competitiveness? How to meet the needs of diversification of manufacturing industry and rapid product renewal and create common value?
The Present Situation and Challenges of Manufacturing Industry
As early as 2015, the State Council promulgated "Made in China 2025" as a program of action for the strategy of manufacturing power, and clearly pointed out that intelligent manufacturing is the commanding point of future economic and technological development, but also the only way for the transformation and upgrading of traditional manufacturing industry.
From the market point of view, China's manufacturing industry has a huge scale, with the development of the whole industry chain, can create the most basic conditions for product development and development. In the field of robotics, the sales of industrial robots in China are far ahead of other countries, but the proportion of manufacturing workers equipped with robots in China is far lower than that in other countries, which shows that the growth potential of China's market is the greatest. The same scenario is reflected in the Internet of Things. The prospects for development are optimistic.
However, at present, China's manufacturing industry is still facing the problem that key equipment and core components are constrained by others, and it is difficult to achieve domestic substitution in the short term; small and medium-sized enterprises are difficult to integrate into the wave of intelligent manufacturing due to the lack of funds, relevant talents, weak information base and other factors.
At the same time, China's environment is facing profound changes. The contradiction between population, resources and environment is becoming increasingly prominent. Population dividends disappear, labor-intensive manufacturing flows to low-cost areas, manufacturing outflows and many other contradictions arise. A new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial revolution is on the horizon. Some enterprises are experimenting one after another to accelerate transformation and attach importance to innovation. And advanced technology, continue to invest in the development of advanced manufacturing technology, turn to manufacturing higher value products and services, the fourth industrial revolution innovation to practice, and achieved unprecedented efficiency improvement. However, most enterprises still seem to be in "pilot purgatory".
How Manufacturing Industry Moves Towards "Intelligent" Manufacturing Industry
How to transform the manufacturing industry to "intelligent manufacturing"? What is the best way of intelligent manufacturing? This is a problem that our enterprises and R&D personnel should pay special attention to and think about at this stage. Nowadays, the hottest "machine replacement", "industry 4.0", "Made in China 2025", "Internet of Things+" and so on are exploring and practicing in this field in full swing. What's the final answer? We don't know, but we can be sure that intelligent manufacturing must rely on many basic intelligent technologies and tools, such as sensors, sensors and tools. Internet of Things, Zhida Data Analysis Tools, etc. are the preconditions for building a powerful country of intelligent manufacturing to achieve major breakthroughs and occupy the commanding heights in these fields.
Firstly, in order to ensure the smooth transformation process of manufacturing ecosystem, enterprises and factories should introduce advanced technology and products and build a complete intelligent manufacturing system to cover the whole process of design, logistics, warehousing, production and testing. Emancipate productivity, through the deployment of technology to allow operators to concentrate on participating in the most effective activities, in order to maximize human decision-making capabilities.
Secondly, we should take the new technological revolution as an opportunity to realize innovation, speed up the adaptation and integration of the development trend of science and technology, make full use of information technology, and promote the integration of advanced manufacturing and science and technology.
In addition, manufacturing enterprises should proceed from the core pain point of their own development, on the basis of rational overall planning and top-level design, along the development direction of intelligent manufacturing elements, intelligent manufacturing capability and intelligent manufacturing system, acquire the intelligent manufacturing elements in stages and continuously, and establish and improve the enterprise's R&D, design and production. Intelligent manufacturing capability of manufacturing, logistics warehousing, order acquisition, product service and other links.
