Leading the era of innovation, low-code empowers traditional auto manufacturing enterprises to lead the ecology

Key findings:

  • The driving force for change: With the rise of the Internet wave, embrace new technologies with an open mind, and strive to build a high-tech automobile company. From the overall architecture level of IT, in addition to building an “industrial Internet platform” and “industrial big data platform”, it is also necessary to efficiently connect various sectors within the enterprise, such as “smart supply chain”, “smart factory” and “digital marketing”. , so as to achieve structural cost reduction in the industrial chain, internal cost reduction and efficiency increase, and most importantly, agile response to market demand.
  • One of the solutions: gradually import Siemens low-code platform, integrate into the existing IT development system, and complete the launch of smart factory lean human resource management system, ME working hour system, missing parts vehicle management system, QMS and other systems.
  • Implementation effect: Through a large number of project verifications, the feasibility and advanced nature of Siemens’ low-code solution have been proved in terms of use and performance, which can effectively save project development time and cost. Compared with traditional JAVA development projects, the overall efficiency is increased by 10-15%, and the deployment and maintenance costs are also reduced.
  • rise to the challenge

    Traditional car companies challenge “1+4” digital transformation strategy

    SAIC Motor Corporation Limited (hereinafter referred to as SAIC) is the largest listed automobile company in the domestic market. SAIC Motor is one of the largest independent brand manufacturers in the domestic market. In the long-term informatization development process, SAIC has built large-scale traditional IT systems including ERP, PLM, WMS, QMS, iMES, TMS, iLink B2B platforms, etc., and successfully realized the systematization of the company’s core business.

    Digital transformation is the general trend. Technically, intelligent networking has become a battleground for the majority of auto companies, and the auto industry is undergoing a transformation from providing transportation to intelligent terminals that carry services. In the industry, the rules of the game formulated by traditional auto companies have been broken by the mushrooming new forces, and if they do not change, they may face the end of being eliminated. In this context, SAIC Motor took the lead in proposing the “1+4” digital transformation strategy, with product digitalization as the core, and actively promoting the comprehensive digital transformation of four major business systems, including digital R&D, digital marketing, intelligent manufacturing and smart parks. Among them, digital R&D will focus on “software-defined vehicles” and “digital twins”; in terms of intelligent manufacturing, it will focus on the construction of “smart factories” and “smart supply chains”.

  • “We increasingly feel the advantages of Siemens low-code in data-driven business value, user experience-centric, and deep and rich integration capabilities. Colleagues in the supply chain sector who have used the low-code platform often tell me , the efficiency is indeed higher than before, and the associated output is indeed faster than before.”

    SAIC Motor has an open mind and the courage to embrace new technologies. IT has absorbed the platform architecture idea of ​​the Internet, and has introduced a lot of people in the Internet field at the technical department level. Due to the platformization and serviceization of the architecture, the delivery speed at the application level is getting faster and faster, more inclusive, and more willing to absorb the practice of Internet companies. experience. The adoption of Siemens’ low-code platform has further accelerated the development process of SAIC Motor and has the ability to help SAIC continue to try innovation and breakthroughs on new tracks!
