The epidemic accelerates digital transformation, and the industrial Internet is on the fast lane

The executive meeting of the State Council held recently clearly pointed out that relying on the industrial Internet to promote the acceleration of online cloud for traditional industries. Earlier, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology also stated at the National Industry and Information Technology Work Conference that the “5G + Industrial Internet” 512 project will be implemented in 2020. Ranked as “new infrastructure” with 5G and artificial intelligence, the Industrial Internet has become one of the infrastructures in the digital age.

In the past three years, the industrial Internet has been developed from concept to implementation. The new crown pneumonia epidemic has objectively brought physical space isolation, personnel traffic isolation, and the deployment of key materials in emergency situations, which is where it can play its advantages. “If the SARS epidemic in 2003 stimulated the development of consumer interconnection, the 2020 new crown pneumonia crisis will bring about the rise of industrial interconnection.” Xu Xiaolan, president of China Industrial Internet Research Institute, said bluntly.

She said that as a product of the deep integration of the new generation of network information technology and the manufacturing industry, the Industrial Internet can effectively improve the allocation efficiency of key materials and increase the output of key materials by connecting all ends of the industrial system, quickly and accurately connecting the data information on the supply side and the demand side. . In contrast, my country’s existing management mode of production and allocation of key materials is still very extensive, it is difficult to get through real-time supply and demand information, and it is impossible to fully grasp the information of key materials nationwide.

Taking masks and protective clothing, which were most in short supply during the epidemic, as an example, due to the lack of detailed control of their daily production, sales and inventory, a large number of front-line medical units have experienced material shortages. On the other hand, areas with milder epidemics may be abundant and unreasonable distribution . “In the distribution of medical materials, if a unique identification is applied during the production and storage of materials through industrial Internet-related technologies such as identification analysis and blockchain, the location, quantity, and location of each package of masks and protective clothing can be known through the industrial Internet platform. Type and other information, track its logistics warehousing and distribution, and achieve global optimization of configuration.” Xu Xiaolan said.

In the fight against the epidemic, the Industrial Internet gave full play to the advantages of interconnection and optimized resource allocation, and strongly supported the integration of resources and the efficient use of materials in the whole society. For example, Haier’s COSMOPlat industrial Internet platform will launch the new crown pneumonia epidemic medical material information sharing resource aggregation platform on January 30, to update the supply and demand information of epidemic prevention materials in a timely and accurate manner, helping production enterprises to efficiently match the needs of materials and epidemic areas, and also for the government. Provide data support for material deployment. UFIDA has supported the efficient operation of first-line hospitals such as Leishenshan Hospital, Wuhan Union Hospital, Wuhan University Zhongnan Hospital, etc., ensuring accurate financial accounting of hospitals, smooth donations, and efficient management of materials. During the construction of Wuhan Huoshenshan Hospital, Hanyun Industrial Internet platform monitored more than 100 construction equipment online, and also deployed online equipment to support the construction of “Xiaotangshan” hospitals in Beijing, Xi’an, Zhuhai and other places.

This has also made more and more industry enterprises realize the importance of digital, networked, and intelligent transformation and upgrading. “The Industrial Internet not only moves more offline businesses online, but also realizes rapid aggregation of traffic and optimization of user experience. , service precision, and through the digital transformation of enterprises, deeply dig the value of industrial data resources, and promote manufacturing enterprises to improve quality, increase efficiency and reduce costs.” Xu Xiaolan said.

However, Wang Jian, chief scientist of China Industrial Internet Research Institute, also said that my country has not yet formed a unified industrial Internet big data management, service and security system. There are problems such as isolation, dispersion and closure of industrial Internet big data resources, and the value of data has not been effectively obtained. Exploitation, data sovereignty and data security face major threats. At present, my country is promoting the construction of data centers represented by the National Industrial Internet Big Data Center, converging and integrating industrial Internet big data resources. In the future, it will focus on the research of core key technologies and develop independent and controllable industrial Internet big data platform software and key points. Application software in fields and key business links.
