  Let the Industrial Internet benefit more SMEs

  Just after the Spring Festival, the production workshop of Puyou Electromechanical Bearing in Xinchang County, Zhejiang Province is already busy.

The equipment is still those equipment, but the number of people operating the equipment has been greatly reduced.

  "Machine tool improvement, process parameter rationalization improvement, raw and auxiliary material life management, and standardization of working behavior habits. Since March last year, we have carried out in-depth value mining and upgrading of the factory informatization transformation project implemented in 2017. In the past, one employee operated a production line. , now one person manages two. The manpower is saved, and we can carry out 'double shift' production." General Manager Huang Yonglong said that without increasing the investment in equipment and personnel, the company has doubled its production capacity and increased its annual output value. exceeded 100 million yuan.

  In recent years, Xinchang Bearing Industrial Internet Platform has actively developed low-cost industrial APPs that are convenient for small and medium-sized enterprises to use, providing equipment monitoring, remote operation and maintenance and other services.

At present, more than 20,000 devices from more than 300 companies have been connected, with an average increase of 13% in device output and a 50% reduction in labor.

  SMEs are the main force in the development of the digital economy and the main battlefield for digital transformation.

In recent years, the development of my country's industrial Internet platform has achieved remarkable results, and its role in empowering, assigning, and empowering small and medium-sized enterprises has become increasingly prominent.

"The Industrial Internet is widely used in more than 40 key industries of the national economy. There are more than 100 platforms with certain regional and industry influence. The number of industrial equipment connected to the platform has reached 76 million sets. It serves 1.6 million industrial enterprises," said Xie Shaofeng, director of the Information Technology Development Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

  "Generally speaking, the difficulty of digital transformation and upgrading of enterprises is still in small and medium-sized enterprises."
