“The current new round of technological revolution and industrial change is booming, and the integration and development of the digital economy and the real economy is profoundly changing economic forms, manufacturing methods and business organization models. The deep integration of informatization and industrialization is the key area of integration and development of the digital economy and the real economy.” On March 1, in the State Information Office held a series of press conferences on the theme of “authoritative departments talk about the opening”, Minister of Industry and Information Technology Jin Zhuanglong said.
Information technology and industrialization depth of integration:
“China’s industrial economy is large, the size of the digital economy ranks second in the world, the integration of development prospects. China will anchor manufacturing power, network power and digital China strategic goals, to digital technology innovation breakthroughs and application expansion as the main direction, and increase the integration of information technology and industrialization development. To summarize, there are three main aspects: a network platform, a digital industry, and a convergence development.” Jin Zhuanglong said.
Jin Zhuanglong said that the first aspect, solidly promote the construction of network infrastructure. China has built the world’s largest and technologically advanced network infrastructure, gigabit access capacity covering all prefecture-level cities, and this year the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will further implement the gigabit city construction action. Not long ago, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology held a gigabit city summit forum to guide local, various enterprises to accelerate the construction of investment efforts to accelerate the depth of 5G, gigabit optical network coverage. Research and development of arithmetic infrastructure development action plan to strengthen the construction of industrial Internet infrastructure.
The second aspect, accelerate the development of the core industries of the digital economy. 2022 China’s electronic information manufacturing industry achieved a business income of 15.4 trillion yuan, software business income reached 10.8 trillion yuan, laying a solid industrial and technological foundation for the development of the integration of information technology and industrialization. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will accelerate the development of artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, cloud computing, network security and other emerging digital industries, guide and support enterprises to increase investment in research and development, improve the level of communications equipment, core electronic components, ultra-high definition display and other industries. Promote the high-quality development of integrated circuit and industrial software industries. High standard construction of special software colleges, to create a number of Chinese software park.
The third aspect, vigorously promote the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry. Research and development of key industries digital transformation roadmap, cultivate a number of digital transformation benchmark. Promote the 5G sail action plan, deepen the “5G + industrial Internet” integration application, promote the industrial Internet to industrial parks to promote the application, to create a number of 5G fully connected factories. The implementation of smart manufacturing partner program and standard pilot action, the construction of a number of leading global smart factories, intelligent supply chain, the development of service-oriented manufacturing and other new models and new business models.
Adhere to the main direction of intelligent manufacturing without wavering:
In recent years artificial intelligence, big data and other digital technologies continue to expand, a number of smart factories, unmanned workshops have emerged around the smart manufacturing scene more and more. What measures will the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology take next to accelerate the intelligent development of manufacturing?
Vice Minister of Industry and Information Technology Xin Guobin said that since the 18th Party Congress, China’s intelligent manufacturing application scale and development level has jumped significantly, and the intelligent development of the manufacturing industry has been effective, which has strongly supported the high-quality development of the industrial economy.
“At present, China has built more than 2,100 high-level digital workshops and intelligent factories, of which 209 are model benchmark factories, we have made intelligent transformation of these 209 enterprises before and after the effectiveness of the analysis, found that after the transformation, the product development cycle of these factories was shortened by 20.7%, production efficiency increased by 34.8%, the defective product rate The product defect rate was reduced by 27.4% and carbon emission was reduced by 21.2%. We have also made a preliminary sorting and summarization, equipment manufacturing and other discrete industrial product iteration speed and delivery capacity has been significantly improved, steel smelting, petrochemical and other process industries, the essential safety and green development level is significantly enhanced. Therefore, intelligent transformation is very meaningful to enterprises.” Xin Guobin said.
Xin Guobin said, at present, a new generation of information technology and advanced manufacturing technology integration development, has become a new round of industrial change distinctive features, is driving the global industrial chain, the value chain profound changes, the development of intelligent manufacturing has become the major industrial countries to enhance the core competitiveness of industry common choice. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will adhere to the main direction of intelligent manufacturing does not waver, to promote industrial technology change and optimization and upgrading, to intelligently reshape the manufacturing industry model and enterprise form, which is also the Party Central Committee and the State Council made a major decision deployment. This year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will focus on promoting the following three aspects of work.
First, to carry out multi-level application promotion. To focus on key industries, to create a number of world-class smart factories and smart supply chain. For small and medium-sized enterprises, the large-scale implementation of process optimization, lean management and process re-engineering and other targeted solutions. For key provinces and cities, the construction of a number of intelligent manufacturing pioneer area, to explore the formation of regional characteristics of the development path and model.
Second, accelerate the integration of technological innovation breakthroughs. The Ministry of Industry will increase the complex design, advanced processes and other manufacturing technology research, the organization and mobilization of all aspects of power, the main role of enterprises to achieve fundamental, strategic breakthroughs. At the same time, focus on artificial intelligence, digital twin and other research and development to promote a number of applicable technologies, to achieve a number of original, forward-looking results. Focus on promoting the softwareization of industrial knowledge, research and development of a number of basic industrial software and core process packages.
Third, strengthen the basic support capabilities. The Ministry of Industry will study and develop policies and measures to promote the development of digital equipment, with intelligent equipment innovation, to support the construction of digital China. Open up the digital infrastructure arteries, accelerate the scale of deployment and application of 5G, industrial Internet, etc. The Ministry of Industry will also improve the standard system of intelligent manufacturing, deepen the application of basic standards, actively participate in international exchanges and cooperation, learn from each other, improve together, and promote the level of intelligent development in various fields to improve.
