Im­prov­ing In­tel­li­gent Man­u­fac­tur­ing

With the dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion of the global man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try, in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing has be­come an im­por­tant means of fos­ter­ing new growth drivers in China, al­low­ing the coun­try to build it­self into a man­u­fac­tur­ing power.

In­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing refers to a sys­tem highly ef­fi­cient, green, In­ter­net-based and cus­tom­ized, in­cor­po­rat­ing the de­sign, man­u­fac­ture and re­cy­cling of prod­ucts based on new tech­nolo­gies such as big data and the In­ter­net of Things.

In re­cent years, China’s in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing has taken shape, with in­vest­ment in­creas­ing in re­search and de­vel­op­ment and break­throughs made in core tech­nolo­gies. How­ever, the com­pet­i­tive­ness of China’s in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing is still in­ad­e­quate com­pared with de­vel­oped coun­tries.

China’s tra­di­tional man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try is un­der­go­ing trans­for­ma­tion and up­grad­ing. Many en­ter­prises are at the mid­dle or low end of the in­dus­trial chain, lack­ing re­sources and im­pulse to switch to in­tel­li­gent equip­ment. Even those en­ter­prises which are us­ing in­tel­li­gent ma­chines are at a pre­lim­i­nary stage in in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing.

It is thus im­per­a­tive to rec­og­nize the rev­o­lu­tion­ary ef­fect of in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing on in­dus­trial growth and use mod­ern tech­nol­ogy to trans­form tra­di­tional pro­duc­tion meth­ods.

In­no­va­tion should be pro­moted to in­de­pen­dently de­velop key tech­nolo­gies and equip­ment such as in­dus­trial robots, in­tel­li­gent sen­sors and con­trol sys­tems. A cus­tomer-based busi­ness model needs to be es­tab­lished to learn about con­sumer de­mands through means such as Big Data anal­y­sis, to bet­ter meet their re­quire­ments and add value to prod­ucts.

En­ter­prises should be en­cour­aged to use in­no­va­tion from other coun­tries to im­prove their com­pet­i­tive­ness as well.
