Deep Interpretation Of The Ten Directions Of Intelligent Manufacturing
- Jan 31, 2019 -

Intelligent manufacturing is to realize the intelligence and innovation of the entire manufacturing value chain, and further enhance the deep integration of informationization and industrialization.

At present, the "intelligence" of intelligent manufacturing is still at the level of Smart. The intelligent manufacturing system has the ability of data acquisition, data processing and data analysis, can accurately execute instructions, and can realize closed-loop feedback;The trend of intelligent manufacturing is to truly achieve "Intelligent", intelligent manufacturing systems can achieve independent learning, independent decision-making, and continuous optimization.

Intelligent manufacturing is to realize the intelligence and innovation of the entire manufacturing value chain, and further enhance the deep integration of informationization and industrialization.Intelligent manufacturing combines information technology, advanced manufacturing technology, automation technology and artificial intelligence technology.Intelligent manufacturing includes the development of smart products;Application of intelligent equipment;Establish intelligent production lines from the bottom up, build intelligent workshops, and build smart factories;Practice intelligent research and development;Form an intelligent logistics and supply chain system;Carry out intelligent management;Advance smart services;Ultimately achieve intelligent decision making.

Among the key technologies of intelligent manufacturing, intelligent products and intelligent services can help enterprises bring innovation in business models; intelligent equipment, intelligent production lines, intelligent workshops to smart factories can help enterprises achieve innovation in production models; intelligent R&D and intelligent management Intelligent logistics and supply chain can help companies achieve innovation in operational models; intelligent decision-making can help companies achieve scientific decision-making. The ten technologies of intelligent manufacturing are closely related, and manufacturing companies should gradually and rationally promote the application of these ten smart technologies.

1. Intelligent product

Smart products typically include mechanical, electrical, and embedded software with memory, sensing, computing, and transmission capabilities. Typical smart products include smart phones, smart wearable devices, drones, smart cars, smart home appliances, smart vending machines, etc., including many smart hardware products. Smart equipment is also a smart product. Companies should think about how to add intelligent units to their products and increase the added value of their products.

2. Intelligent service

Based on sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT), the state of the product can be sensed for preventive maintenance and repair, to help customers replace spare parts in time, and even to help customers bring business opportunities by knowing the status of the product. It can also collect big data from product operations to assist companies in making marketing decisions. In addition, by developing an APP for customer service, the company is also a means of intelligent service, which can provide targeted services for products purchased by enterprises, thereby locking users and launching service marketing.

3. Intelligent equipment

Manufacturing equipment has gone through mechanical equipment to CNC equipment and is now gradually developing into intelligent equipment. The intelligent equipment has a detection function, which can realize on-machine detection, thereby compensating for machining errors, improving machining accuracy, and also compensating for thermal deformation. In the past, some precision equipment required high environmental requirements. Now, with closed-loop detection and compensation, the environmental requirements can be reduced.

4. Intelligent production line

Companies in many industries rely heavily on automated production lines such as steel, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, tobacco, chip manufacturing, electronic assembly, automotive and parts manufacturing to achieve automated processing, assembly and inspection, and production of some mechanical standard parts. Automated production lines, such as bearings, are also used. However, equipment manufacturing companies are still dominated by discrete manufacturing. The key point of technological transformation of many enterprises is to establish automated production lines, assembly lines and inspection lines. U.S. Boeing’s aircraft assembly plant has established a U-shaped pulsating assembly line. Automated production lines can be divided into rigid automated production lines and flexible automated production lines, and flexible automated production lines generally have buffers. In order to improve production efficiency, industrial robots and hanging systems are increasingly used in automated production lines.

5. Intelligent workshop

A shop usually has multiple production lines that either produce similar parts or products or have an upstream and downstream assembly relationship. In order to realize the intelligence of the workshop, it is necessary to collect and analyze the information such as production status, equipment status, energy consumption, production quality and material consumption in real time, perform efficient scheduling and reasonable scheduling, and significantly improve equipment utilization (OEE). Therefore, no matter what manufacturing industry, manufacturing execution system (MES) becomes an inevitable choice for enterprises.
