With the rapid development of the Internet, the products of the Internet can be seen anytime and anywhere. The Internet can be perfectly combined with any industry, and traditional industry is no exception. For China’s industry in the “deep water area”, can the Internet bring its own advantages into full play to lead the traditional industry to a new climax?
For this issue, the State Council issued the “made in China 2025” plan. This plan points out the development direction of China’s industry in the future from the general direction, and also indicates that a new round of manufacturing reform is gradually coming.
Intelligent factory: the product of Internet and traditional industry
With the activation of the Internet, a series of changes have taken place in traditional industrial production, one of which is the birth of smart factory. The so-called “smart factory” is a new organization mode, which is based on the relevant data of products and under the action of computer, to simulate, simulate, evaluate and optimize the whole production process, and extend to the whole product cycle.
Digital chemical factory can perfectly solve the “generation gap” between product design and product manufacturing, and make design become a reality. In the virtual environment to complete the processing process, get the evaluation and inspection results, improve the reliability and success rate of finished products. Compared with the General Factory, the advantage of digital intelligent factory is to emphasize the digitization of production plan and improve production efficiency.
The idea of smart factory is that intelligent products can integrate: dynamic digital memory, sensing and communication capabilities, which can fully carry all kinds of information needed in the whole supply chain and life cycle. The “digital enterprise platform” established by the smart factory can form an information physical integration system, which makes the Internet move towards the Internet of things.
Intelligent factory: enhance the competitiveness of enterprises
Under the activation of the Internet, the only way to ensure the long-term competition of the manufacturing industry is to ensure the long-term competition. Compared with the previous three industrial revolutions, the progress of China’s industry 4.0 period lies in the use of the Internet to drive the traditional industrialization, making the industrial equipment humanized and intelligent, so that the equipment can “speak” and “think”. To achieve the goal of reducing the dependence of manufacturing industry on labor force and reducing circulation cost.
Compared with the organizational form of traditional industry, the traditional industry under the new situation can be improved in the following three aspects. Reduce the factory’s dependence on labor, reduce the cost of warehousing and logistics, and meet the personalized requirements of customers.
- 1. Reduce the dependence of factories on labor. The aggravation of aging problem in China leads to the increase of labor cost. As a result, the international competitiveness of China’s industry has declined. With the advent of industry 4.0, intelligent machines are used to replace human resources, which reduces the cost of labor, and greatly improves the scene competitiveness of China’s manufacturing industry.
- 2. Reduce the cost of warehousing logistics. Warehousing logistics is a very important aspect of industrial processing. To make the storage logistics intelligent is to use advanced scientific and technological means such as software technology, automatic sorting technology, optical sorting technology, voice control technology and other advanced scientific and technological means to effectively plan, implement and control the import and export, inventory, sorting, packaging and distribution of equipment and articles. Improve efficiency and reduce logistics cost.
- 3. Meet the personalized needs of users. In the era of Internet, the life cycle of products is becoming shorter and shorter, and the requirement of resource utilization is higher and higher. The rapid release of users’ personalized needs has led to the abandonment of the mode of mass production in the past. The arrival of industry 4.0 will organically combine intensive cultivation, flexible and creative “personalization” with “large-scale” of mass production and repeated production. Let each link of the whole manufacturing chain cooperate more efficiently and closely.
