  Entering the C008 hot-dip galvanizing intelligent workshop of Baosteel Cold Rolling Plant, the eyes were suddenly dark. Several unmanned vehicles above were lifting and unloading steel coils, reminding people that this huge factory was still operating in an orderly manner. The 24-hour "unmanned workshop" of Baosteel Co., Ltd. after digital transformation does not require workers to be on duty.

  "The intelligently upgraded "unmanned workshop" can increase labor efficiency by 30% and capacity by 20%." The relevant person in charge of Baosteel Cold Rolling Plant said that intelligent manufacturing has become a "weapon" for companies to improve quality and efficiency. It has helped enterprises to stabilize production during the epidemic prevention and control period.

  "Unmanned workshop" is a microcosm of China's manufacturing industry accelerating towards digitalization. On July 3, the "White Paper on the Development of China's Digital Economy (2020)" released by the China Institute of Information and Communications shows that in 2019, China's industrial digitalization exploration will advance to a deeper and broader field, and digital technology will drive the growth and efficiency of traditional industry output. The role of upgrading is further strengthened, and the scale of industrial digital added value reaches 28.8 trillion yuan, a nominal increase of 16.8% year-on-year.

  What does "28.8 trillion yuan" reflect?

  —— Behind "28.8 trillion yuan" is the deep integration of more traditional industries and new technologies.

  In June, in the depths of Luliang Mountain, Shanxi, after more than three months of efforts by China Unicom construction personnel, the last base station of the 5G network of the Pang Pangta coal mine was successfully commissioned. So far, a commercial 5G private network covering more than 100 kilometers of tunnels has been basically completed.

  This 5G private network has improved the safety and efficiency of mining. "With the help of 5G private network, we have successfully built a variety of applications such as video acquisition, intelligent analysis, and equipment health management. Intelligent mining is no longer a dream!" said the relevant person in charge of Shanxi Huo Coal Group.

  Not only the coal mining industry, but also taking advantage of the new generation of information technology such as 5G and artificial intelligence, my country has accelerated the digital transformation in many industrial fields. In 2019, the digitization rate of production equipment, the numerical control rate of key processes, and the networking rate of digital equipment of industrial enterprises above designated size reached 47.1%, 49.5%, and 41%, respectively, and the penetration rate of digital R&D and design tools of industrial enterprises reached 69.3%. The digital transformation of the industry provides support.

  -Behind the "28.8 trillion yuan" is the full release of the potential for digital transformation of SMEs.

  The order relies on data-driven, automatic 3D modeling of clothing, continuous and smooth production process...After the digital transformation, Yang Zhiqiang, general manager of Qingdao Global Apparel Co., Ltd., directly called "Unexpected", "through cooperation with Haier Kaos, we have built a personalized Custom service platform, now we can also receive personalized orders from all over the world."

  Helping SMEs achieve digital transformation, Haier Kaos is the epitome of China's industrial Internet platform. According to estimates, in 2019, the scale of China's industrial Internet industry's economic value added is 2.13 trillion yuan, an actual increase of 47.3% year-on-year. Among them, the economic impact of industrial Internet integration has reached 1.6 trillion yuan, and its role in promoting economic development is gradually appear.

  -Behind the "28.8 trillion yuan" is also the accelerated emergence of new business models and entrepreneurial vitality.

  What should I do if sales encounter the ceiling? Not long ago, Kun Zhan Technology helped shoe company Tianchuang Fashion boldly try a new business model of "shop and factory integration" on Taobao live broadcast-live broadcast of the shoe production line, consumers can place orders when they see the shoes, and immediately after placing the order Schedule production on the production line. "From the user seeing the sample to place an order, and then to the production line to accurately meet the user's needs, the invisible barrier between the manufacturer and the customer is broken." said Min Wanli, CEO of Kun Zhan Technology.

  The new generation of information technology and the manufacturing industry are accelerating integration, and new products, new models and new formats are constantly being nurtured. According to statistics, in 2019, the proportion of enterprises carrying out networked collaboration, service-oriented manufacturing and personalized customization reached 35.3%, 25.3% and 8.1% respectively.

  "With the full range of digital technology and full chain support, the manufacturing industry is becoming the driving force of my country's digital economy," said Sun Ke, director of the Digital Economy Research Department of the Political and Economic Research Institute of the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology.
