(Focus on Boao) Boao New Vision: What is the future factory of industrial digitalization?

  China News Agency, Boao, April 20 (Reporter Wang Ziqian) At present, digitalization continues to empower, and the industrial Internet has become a key link in promoting the optimization and upgrading of the manufacturing industry.

At the Boao Forum for Asia 2021 annual meeting that is being held here, we will show you the vision of the future industry.

  In recent years, China, the United States, Germany and other countries have successively proposed industrial Internet development strategies, the core of which is to improve the level of manufacturing through digital transformation.

  "The term'industrial Internet' is misleading, making people think that industry plus the Internet. In fact, the traditional consumer Internet cannot meet industrial requirements." said Zhang Wenlin, president of the strategy department of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. As a production factor, it is integrated into the entire link of industrial R&D and design, intelligent manufacturing, and service operation and maintenance.

  Dong Mingzhu, chairman and president of Zhuhai Gree Electric Appliance Co., Ltd., said that the improvement of the digital level of the industrial Internet has given companies the possibility to further improve their quality control capabilities.

She revealed that Gree is relying on 5G technology to build a fully unmanned black light factory.

However, she also emphasized that "big data cannot cause problems in the manufacturing industry. If it does, it will be a fatal problem."

  An Gaobo, a member of Merck’s Global Electronic Technology Management Committee and President of Merck China, said that the advancement of digital technology has made the industrial production cycle more transparent. “During the epidemic, the industrial Internet can grasp the real-time situation and allow the supply chain to respond quickly.”

  Italian steel industry equipment manufacturer Danieli Group China CEO Ma Yinuo also said that the digitization of the industrial Internet will have a huge impact on the cooperation of the entire steel industry supply chain, which may result in close cooperation across regions.

  China is accelerating the layout of the industrial Internet system.

Huang Wei, Vice Minister of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, stated that the Ministry of Science and Technology has planned a number of major R&D projects related to the Industrial Internet in the "14th Five-Year Plan". "In the future, it may be in aviation, electrical appliances, automobiles, smart home appliances, rail transit, etc. Field, the implementation of industrial Internet demonstration projects".

  Zhang Wenlin said that a series of problems need to be solved in the process of industrial digitalization and intelligence, such as increasing the networking rate of production equipment, ensuring the low energy consumption, strong penetration, large bandwidth and low latency of wireless equipment, and ensuring the rapid flow of data.

  "Although the industrial Internet can bring lower costs, higher efficiency, stronger competitiveness, and better user experience and services, it requires continuous and high-intensity input of resources from the whole society." Huang Wei said.

  With the continuous improvement of the industrial Internet level, data security is becoming more and more important.

The director-general of Israel’s Ministry of Science and Technology Spegman said that countries must ensure the privacy and security of basic industrial Internet data and respond early through technical, policy, and legal means.

  Zhang Wenlin also believes that the past Internet external firewall to ensure security cannot be used on the industrial Internet.

"Industry requires that every message itself can be proved to be safe and has not been invaded or tampered with. It is essential to bring a health code to each message. Such a technological breakthrough is very important."

  "Industrial Internet is constantly escalating with technological progress, and we must pay particular attention to the changes brought about by disruptive technologies." Huang Wei believes that the most disruptive technology brought about by the industrial Internet in the future may be quantum science in ten or even thirty years. "Because it will completely change a series of issues such as information transmission and computing power." (End)
