Intelligent factory, information interconnection and sharing without obstacles

Application Background:
As we all know, manufacturing is the backbone of the national economy and the cornerstone of national prosperity. Intelligent manufacturing, as a natural companion of manufacturing, has become the core of this field. However, compared with the world's advanced level, China's manufacturing industry still has a number of challenges, including a huge scale but weak competitiveness, as well as obvious gaps in independent innovation capability, resource utilization efficiency, industrial structure level, informatization degree, quality and efficiency in process industries, petrochemicals and chemicals. Therefore, the task of promoting the transformation, upgrading and leapfrog development of the manufacturing industry is urgent and challenging. For the process industry, intelligent factory is an indispensable way to realize "intelligent manufacturing". It will provide more opportunities for enterprises to operate in a more efficient and smarter way, thus improving competitiveness and sustainability and meeting the challenges of the future.

The construction of smart factories covers several key areas. First, the information sensing phase relies on advanced technologies, such as sensors and RFID, for collecting a wide range of information. This includes the collection of information from a wide range of sources such as market data, personnel activities, basic equipment information and operational status, production data, customer information, sales and logistics information, and so on.
Secondly, achieving connectivity is a key step, implying the realization of connectivity and sharing of information among themselves through a variety of means. In addition to the necessary hardware facilities, software also plays an important role. This includes the application of software tools such as ERP systems, OA systems, MES systems, DCS systems, e-commerce systems, knowledge management systems, and so on. At the same time, smart factories also need to establish basic information models, business models, process models, and related knowledge bases and expert libraries, etc., in order to realize the collection of information and the sharing and communication with the existing information of the enterprise.
Finally, the intelligent processing phase involves data analysis and application, using the collected data and available information for in-depth analysis and practical application. This includes aspects such as visual presentation of information, forecasting and alerting of production processes, production optimization processing, and related decision analysis.
In conclusion, the construction of intelligent factories requires comprehensive consideration of various aspects such as hardware, software and information processing in order to achieve efficient production and decision-making, thereby enhancing the competitiveness and sustainability of enterprises.
