When it comes to smart factories, we think of all the machines on the assembly line going into the network, automated, efficient, and customized, but do you have a supply chain that keeps up?
Ma Yun: intelligent factory trend
Ma Yun said that the next 30 years belong to the manufacturing sector, what kind of manufacturing?
With the application of big data and the Internet of things, what is the factory production, the data speak, rather than the factory production lead consumption, this also means that B2C will transfer to C2C, has brought great changes in the production and manufacturing cost, change the future of manufacturing today is not the simple meaning, which is created based on innovation. Is the wisdom of the manufacture, production line material management more harmonious, more orderly, more agile information feedback, on the contrary, poor low-end manufacturing enterprises will also be worse, Ma Yun in Xiamen, a trade fair said.
There is no doubt that intelligent factories are the development trend of manufacturing industry. From small quantities, many goods to mass customization production, change has become a constant theme. Intelligent factory product intelligence, production automation, information flow and material flow together, these advantages will be replaced by the traditional belt line reasons. Although Chinese manufacturing in domestic trouble and foreign invasion embarrassment, but Chinese made a gold for ten years already, because Chinese makes 2025 of the battle has begun, and smart factories will take us into the big era of customized manufacturing.
Smart factories: need a stronger supply chain
We may suppose, accelerating the pace of production, rapid changes in the market, customer order changes frequently, order and material management complexity of an unprecedented increase, supply chain management (procurement management, production planning, warehouse management) was scorched by the flames is still flawed, this factory has benefits? Coupled with the rise in labor prices and the shortage of skilled personnel, how can material management and customer order management be agile and transparent?
Without a powerful supply chain, support is not an intelligent factory. In order to warehouse logistics management in the supply chain as an example, many enterprises still remain in the warehouse management based on the manual operation, no system to guide the material, may be put in the wrong or materialreceiving wrong phenomenon. All kinds of disadvantages have seriously affected the efficiency of warehouse management, reduced the storage capacity of enterprise warehouse, improved the cost of warehouse management, and restricted the development of enterprises. Strengthening the construction of logistics distribution system should pay attention to it.
Supply chain: informatization is more essential
It is foreseeable that in the era of intelligent factories, robots will be widely used in the future, and information management systems based on industrial networking will also be popular to meet the needs of a variety of products, small quantities, and multi-functional complex products. Production and sales of feedback from the market to the smart factory such a high degree of coordination, the efficiency value of burst table made era, supply chain will serve as a production line logistics role, if the supply chain which links off the chain, so the efficiency of the production line will be greatly reduced, even not only efficiency but become a great cancer.
Obviously, the smart factory must strengthen the supply chain management, in order to drive industrialization with informatization, intelligent manufacturing, which is a bridge to the modern enterprise management mode from the traditional management mode, is the cornerstone of intelligent manufacturing, don't take what?
