Introduction of Intelligent Manufacturing is supported by a system of things smart, smart manufacturing and smart service. It has become a global value chain restructuring and the international division of labor adjustment is important to select the next national background. Some countries have increased manufacturing reflux efforts to enhance the strategic position of the manufacturing sector in the national economy. Asia as an important regional manufacturing is also actively deploying automation and intelligence. With the rapid development of artificial intelligence, intelligence has become an important direction of industrial development. Intelligent manufacturing development and achieved remarkable results Control Engineering Copyright , to enter the high-speed growth. China Intelligent Manufacturing into the growth stage, mainly in three aspects: First, China’s industrial enterprises to enhance the quality of digital capabilities, laying the foundation for future analysis and forecasting and adaptive manufacturing systems. Second, the effectiveness of financial, intelligent manufacturing enterprise profit contribution rate has improved significantly. Third, typical applications, China has become the first industrial robot consumer, the strong growth in demand. Chinese industrial enterprises in the deployment of intelligent manufacturing five major focus , as follows: Digital Factory (63%), and user equipment worth digging (62%), industrial things (48%), weight business model configuration (36%) and AI (21%). (See Figure 1)
Figure 1: The deployment of intelligent manufacturing companies surveyed areas of focus
Digital Factory is a top priority. Intelligent Manufacturing manufacturing sector is at the core of intelligence to-end data stream based, digital as the core driving force, so the digital factory is intelligent manufacturing enterprises as the primary task of deployment. At present, enterprises deploy digital factory to open up the flow of production data to perform the main task, and the product stream and supply chain data stream large room for improvement. The depth of excavation equipment and customer value. Manufacturing enterprises are facing increasingly fierce market competition and increasingly transparent product pricing Control Engineering Copyright , have to find new sources of value. Deloitte intelligent manufacturing survey results show that users value the depth of excavation equipment and intelligent manufacturing enterprise deployment of the second area of focus. 62% of respondents are actively deployed and the user equipment excavation depth value , 41% of the value of mining equipment business focus, 21% of corporate users focus value mining. Chinese manufacturers are not enthusiastic about cloud deployment. 53% of manufacturing companies surveyed have not yet deployed the cloud industry, 47% of industrial enterprise cloud deployments under way, 27% of companies deploy a private cloud, public cloud deployment by 14%, 6% hybrid cloud deployment. (See Figure 2)

Reconstruction of future business models. Intelligent Manufacturing not only help manufacturing companies to achieve cost efficiency, but also gives a rethink of the value proposition and business model reconstruction opportunities. Deloitte survey results show that 30% of respondents to the company’s future business model as the core platform, 26% of companies take large-scale customization, 24% of “product + service” as the core of the transition to solution providers, 12% to intellectual property rights as the core. (See Figure 3)

AI impact on the manufacturing sector, mainly from two aspects: one is the use of artificial intelligence to improve the quality and efficiency in manufacturing and management processes; second, It is a complete subversion of existing products and services. Intelligent Manufacturing Deloitte survey found that 51 percent of the companies surveyed use of artificial intelligence in manufacturing and management processes, 46% of the companies surveyed in the areas of goods and services have been or plan to deploy artificial intelligence. Three major tasks, the ability to span the gap. Reconstruction of the business model is a complex and difficult task, business model optimization, innovation management and capacity building for enterprise cloud deployments three key tasks. A breakthrough and growth of digital capabilities to enhance the quality of digital manufacturing enterprises the ability to significantly improve the quality, most companies are committed to vertical integration data.

much of the future will come from value-added business activities across the enterprise, in the long run CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , public cloud, hybrid cloud is the trend, because the only way to achieve data exchange and sharing of resources. Although private cloud security, but is likely to be isolated in the new business models and new ecosystem outside. Things in the field of intelligent manufacturing scenarios divided into three categories: equipment and asset management, product and service innovation insight. d. Reconstruction of future intelligent manufacturing business model will not only help manufacturing companies to achieve cost efficiency, but also gives a rethink of the value proposition and remodeling businessOpportunity for industry model. At the same time, new entrants are constantly challenging the status of the traditional market participants, many technology-based companies to join the battlefield on the promotion of industrial enterprises explore new and innovative business models. Business Planning for the future business model of roughly four categories: 30% of respondents future business model will be the platform as the core, 26% of companies take large-scale customization, 24% of “product + service” as the core of the solution business transformation, 12% of intellectual property rights as the core.
