We are exploring the focus of transformation and upgrading of “Made in China”.
By professionals, specialized agencies, leading people can participate in the transformation
The new era of manufacturing will be an era created by all people. Modern manufacturing requires specialized knowledge, equipment, and a lot of investment, and it has always been an area where large companies and professionals are engaged. The digital revolution in product manufacturing is not only to optimize the existing manufacturing industry, but also to expand the scope of the manufacturing industry to a large number of people, both with the participation of manufacturers and ordinary people. People use digital technology and rapid prototyping technology to design products and make models themselves. With the advent of 3D and 4D printing technologies, the manufacturing industry was put on the desktop of ordinary people. Through the Internet, ideas can be shared and disseminated online. Potential entrepreneurs and inventors do not have to rely on large companies to achieve manufacturing. If you wish, anyone can pass the design proposal to the manufacturing service provider. You can also use the powerful digital desktop manufacturing tools such as 3D and 4D printers to complete the product manufacturing.
Manufacturing industry is in the process of changing to digital. Today, we still mainly live in a real world made up of physical objects. The digital revolution is basically limited to the screen. In the future, the Maker Movement will make the network intelligence more in-depth with the real world, the commercial Internet model will shift to the manufacturing industry, and the traditional manufacturing industry will be overturned. Many individuals have created Huicheng’s creation of the whole people and promoted the vigorous development of the new industrial revolution. The global manufacturing industry will thus open a new page. The overall trend of the manufacturing industry in the 21st century is not the disappearance of leading enterprises in the industry, but the monopoly of the leading enterprises in the industry no longer exists. Large companies with large numbers of employees still exist, and there are also a large number of small companies that specifically meet the individual needs of consumers. The pattern of manufacturing will fundamentally change. It is worth noting that some developed countries put forward the concept of re-industrialization. Their surface means to recall the transferred manufacturing industry. Its deeper purpose is not to return to traditional manufacturing, but to develop digital manufacturing that everyone can participate in. Digital manufacturing will pose a serious challenge to the traditional manufacturing industry. The first to come is developing countries with a low-cost labor force as a competitive advantage. Focusing on improving the level of digital manufacturing to promote popular entrepreneurship and innovation, will be the only way to transform and upgrade “Made in China”.
From mass customization to personalized production
In a certain sense, the history of human society production is a history of constant innovation and creation. As people's material and cultural needs continue to be respected and satisfied, the manufacturing industry will also move toward the era of personalized production. The
Manufacturing will cross the mass customization phase. Early human society was in a small amount of customization, which lasted for nearly 3,000 years. The Venice Shipyard, which began in 1500, marks the entry of humans into the standard production stage. Interchangeable parts (standardized parts) became the basic characteristics of the monopoly industries such as textile and machinery in the 19th century. In 1910, Ford built the world's first large-scale automobile production plant in Hyland Park, a suburb of Detroit, using interchangeable parts systems for large-scale manufacturing of standard products, marking the entry of humans into high-volume standardized production stages. . In the early 1970s, companies represented by Toyota Motor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. combined mass production and customization. There was more direct contact between customer needs and products, and the diverse needs of customers were well met, marking the human race. Enter the mass customization phase. With the continuous development of digital technology, mass customization will gradually become a thing of the past.
Personalized production will become the mainstream of manufacturing development. At the beginning of this century, the manufacturing industry began to enter the stage of personalized production. Compared with the small amount of customization in the early days of human society, personalized production has no essential difference in satisfying people's differentiated needs. However, it is not a simple regression of the early mode of customization, but is based on the denial of negation of different technologies. In the individualized production stage, the key to promoting the development of the manufacturing industry is no longer products, but meet people's internal needs. Some observers predict that around 2040, 3D and 4D printing technology will reach a mature stage. When the 3D and 4D printing technologies became the basic components of production, the era of personalized production in the manufacturing industry really arrived. Scientifically grasping and adapting to this trend of the times is a key link in the smooth transformation and upgrading of “Made in China”.
