Intelligent manufacturing refers to the deep integration of the new generation of information and communication technology and advanced manufacturing technology. It runs through all aspects of manufacturing activities such as design, production, management and service. It has new production methods such as perception, learning, decision-making, execution and adaptation.

The equipment manufacturing industry is the country’s heavy weapon, the cornerstone of the manufacturing industry, and shoulders an important mission in realizing the transformation of China’s manufacturing from large to strong. With the continuous introduction of policies in the field of intelligent manufacturing, China’s manufacturing industry has gradually transformed into intelligent manufacturing, and has begun to apply a large number of related technologies such as cloud computing, big data, and robotics.

Under the background of national policy promotion and technological transformation and upgrading of manufacturing technology, China’s intelligent manufacturing industry has developed rapidly, which has a profound impact on industrial development and the division of labor. The data shows that the market size of China’s smart manufacturing industry in 2017 was 1.515 billion yuan, with a growth rate of 22.6%. With the gradual improvement of technology and the continuous expansion of the application industry, the market scale will continue to grow. It is expected that the market size will exceed 1.9 trillion in 2019. yuan.

As one of the main driving forces of China’s manufacturing industry, the intelligent manufacturing industry is prosperous and the industry will continue to grow steadily. The position played by China’s manufacturing industry will become more and more important. From the perspectives of development prospects, technology integration, and business models, 2019 China’s smart manufacturing will welcome the top ten development trends.

One: short-term gloom is difficult to stop the pace of intelligent manufacturing development continues to heat up

At present, the application rate of industrial robots in China is gradually saturated in areas with high maturity such as automobile manufacturing and electronic product manufacturing. With the endogenous demand and power of enterprise digitalization, network and intelligent transformation, intelligent manufacturing will gradually penetrate into traditional fields such as metallurgy, petrochemical, textile and engineering machinery, and the development of intelligent manufacturing will continue to heat up.

Second: industrial scenes with a high degree of technical depth are expected to become the breakthrough point for the widespread application of “AI+”

The deep integration of artificial intelligence and industry will gradually shift from the general technical field to the technical depth of the technical depth, from upstream design, raw material delivery, to midstream manufacturing, human-machine collaboration, downstream services, monitoring and operation, Finally, it will guide the closed loop of application of industrial design and technology upgrade.

Three: Building a closed loop of accurate data flow will become the key to building an intelligent manufacturing ecosystem

With the fundamental changes in industrial data attributes, the value of industrial big data is increasingly valued. Future industrial data will show a shift from consumption data, industrial big data to precise data flow. Constructing a closed loop of precise data flow from acquisition, analysis, conversion, feedback, etc. will become the key to building an intelligent manufacturing ecosystem.

Four: Industry and scene focus will lead Internet companies into the industrial field

Internet companies have entered the industrial field with natural technology and platform advantages. China’s “Internet + Intelligent Manufacturing” has achieved initial results, including Alibaba Cloud Industry Brain, Baidu Smart Factory and Jingdong Smart Supply Chain. Focusing on smart manufacturing specific industries and scenarios in the future will become an important entry point for Internet companies to develop smart manufacturing.

Five: Industry-level industrial Internet platform will take the lead in exploring a market-oriented business model

Due to the limited depth of the ubiquitous industry platform, the market supply and demand do not match, which makes the cloud will not be strong, and has not yet explored a mature market-oriented model. Due to the dual characteristics of focusing and universality, the industry-level industrial Internet platform is expected to take the lead in exploring a viable market-oriented business model in the face of different needs of intelligent manufacturing industries.

Six: The key point of industrial enterprise added value will be transferred from equipment value mining to user value mining

The industrial development process is shifting from the demand of enterprise products to the needs of users and leading the production of enterprises. The increase of value added by intelligent manufacturing for industrial fields should gradually shift from cost reduction and efficiency in production and manufacturing to high value-added derivative services. The “smart service” provided by the “smart products” produced by intelligent manufacturing will become the key to the added value of industrial enterprises.

Seven: Security will become an important basis for enterprise intelligent upgrade decision-making

Digital assets such as industrial core data, key technology patents, and enterprise user data have become core assets of the enterprise. At present, China’s data security regulations and supervision mechanisms are still not perfect, which has inhibited the pace of intelligent enterprise upgrades to some extent. In the future, improving the security of data life cycle and increasing the trust and willingness of enterprises on the cloud will become an important basis for the decision-making of intelligent upgrade of Chinese enterprises.

Eight: Intelligent manufacturing system integration development will be deeply rooted in the industry

As a comprehensive integration service, the intelligent manufacturing system solution not only faces the financial pressure brought by the “two-headed payment”, but also meets the high demand of the team for professionals. The development route of “all-round attack” in many fields will be given to the enterprise. With a heavy burden. In the future, system integrators in the deep focus segmentation industry are expected to set off the banner of industrial development.

Nine: The ultra-high value-added manufacturing field will become the optimal entry point for additive manufacturing in the industrial field.

Additive manufacturing technology has the characteristics of high production cost and low upper limit. It has no cost advantage in desktop-level applications and simple-process large-scale manufacturing scenarios. Large-scale commercial enterprises can not be rolled out, but with engines, wind turbine blades and submarine propellers. In the field of ultra-high value-added and super-large custom-made single-piece manufacturing, it is expected to become the optimal entry point for additive manufacturing technology in the industrial field.

Ten: Automotive, 3C and other industries will lead the digital hygiene technology to accelerate

As the first choice for enterprise digital upgrade and smart factory construction, digital hygiene technology will take the three aspects of digital product hygiene, digital manufacturing process and equipment digital generation, and priority in the field of automobile manufacturing and electronic manufacturing with high process maturity. open. It is expected that by 2020, at least 50% of manufacturers with annual revenues exceeding $1 billion will launch at least one digital hygiene project for their products or assets.
