Internet of Things and Intelligent Manufacturing


Internet of Things and Intelligent Manufacturing


From China to the world, the Industrial Internet of Things has become the general trend of the manufacturing industry. As the key universal technology leading a new round of technological revolution, the Internet of Things technology is also the core and foundation for promoting the intelligentization of enterprise manufacturing. The developed industrial countries represented by Germany, the United States, and Japan have strengthened their strategic deployment in the field of industrial Internet of Things. Cisco ranks the "Internet of Things" as the most significant technology trend in the next 10 years; General Electric estimates that by 2020, the annual output value of the global Industrial Internet of Things will reach $ 225 billion. The Industrial Internet of Things has the potential to affect 100% of global energy production, 44% energy consumption.

The development of the Industrial Internet of Things technology will also generate industries such as big data storage, cloud computing services, system integration services, etc. Breakthroughs in these areas will not only effectively promote the overall development of the Industrial Internet of Things industry, but will also in turn Enhance the overall strength of China's information industry and further accelerate the advancement of China's intelligent manufacturing process.

Development status at home and abroad

In the field of Industrial Internet of Things, developed countries are at the forefront, and foreign companies are entering. China has also increased investment and reached internationally advanced levels in some areas. For example, in the field of sensors, China focuses on high-end sensors, increasing investment in sensor-related industries, and the market shows a rapid growth trend. In terms of industrial control, the number of DCS varieties has increased significantly, and technology has reached or approached the international advanced level. In terms of networking platforms, China Aerospace Science and Industry officially released the INDICS Industrial Internet of Things platform to the world in June 2017, providing complete industrial Internet of Things service functions, suitable for enterprises of different levels, types, and sizes; it can support various industrial equipment access, Integrate various industrial application services to build a benign industrial ecosystem; build a complete security system for the Industrial Internet of Things covering equipment security, network security, control security, application security, data security, and business security.

Development trend analysis

So what are the future trends of the Internet of Things and intelligent manufacturing?

1.Improve productivity through an interconnected IoT infrastructure

With the help of advanced machine learning, artificial intelligence, digitalization and other technologies, manufacturing enterprises have achieved rapid changes in recent years. However, before manufacturers take full advantage of the Internet of Things technology, there is still a lot of potential for such change to be tapped.

2. Reshaping the role of manufacturers

In the past, in order to optimize operations and ensure that everything runs smoothly, manufacturers must track and monitor multiple variables throughout the business process. However, today's manufacturers are facing more and more complicated environments and larger and larger scales, and it is difficult to continue to do all of this in real time. Fortunately, the tight integration of artificial intelligence and IoT technology with the production process allows manufacturers to gain a deeper understanding of what is happening in the factory.

3.Create new business opportunities with digital technology

Traditional manufacturing companies are transforming into digital platform providers through transformation, which may be the most noticeable development result of digital technology. Although intelligent technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, predictive maintenance, and mixed reality glow a lot of practical benefits in the manufacturing sector, many companies have not adopted these technologies due to IT infrastructure costs and other reasons. However, as more and more manufacturers begin to build their own digital platforms to support their IoT device networks, they will gradually realize that they can further monetize related investments, thereby entering new markets and providing novelty to other industries. Products and services.

If an enterprise's intelligent manufacturing is a long march, it is both a road of choice and a road of practice. The so-called choice is to choose the integration of old and new, tools and processes, MOM and Industrial Internet of Things; the so-called practice is to start from solving the current business pain points of the enterprise, and find a suitable way in practice. The so-called not to make a decision is the worst decision. Instead of waiting, it is better to act. Find the path that suits you best in the action and always revolve around the original intention of the enterprise-the solution of the pain point.
