Although smart phones have become very popular in our lives, smart homes have taken a step forward. Internet socialization, e-commerce, Internet entertainment, and online education have penetrated into every aspect of life, but in the manufacturing field, this virtual reality merges with reality. The industrial revolution does not seem to be so bloody.
Industry 1.0 is the steam era of mechanized production, 2.0 is the assembly line mode of mass production and "Electric Age", Industry 3.0 is the era of highly automated electronic information technology, then Industry 4.0 is built on the Information Physics Fusion System (CPS). The "networked production era" of virtual and real integration.
Whether it is the industrial 4.0 proposed by Germany or the industrial Internet proposed by the United States, and the "Made in China 2025" proposed by China, the key words are "intelligent": intelligent products, intelligent services, intelligent devices, intelligent processes, The driving force behind it is the development of software and the Internet. In other words, the convergence of the Internet, software and industry is subverting the traditional industrial world.
In the future smart factory, the foundation of the industrial 4.0 era—the information physics fusion system will input product information into the product parts themselves, they will directly communicate with the production system and equipment according to their own production needs, and issue the next production process instruction; Equipment can also exchange information with each other, and gradually develop imitation and learning capabilities with the “experience” provided by “Big Data” to conduct independent production and make accurate judgments on complex conditions in production. This autonomous production model can meet the “customization requirements” of each user, enabling large-scale personalization.
Through cloud computing, autonomous control and the Internet, people, machines and information are connected and integrated. Existing technologies and innovations will all be integrated into a digital enterprise platform. Production has not yet begun, all aspects of the product development process and production process can be designed, simulated and optimized in the virtual world through software, and can be simulated.
All plants will be connected together, suppliers in the production value chain will receive and exchange real-time production information, all parts supplied by the supplier will arrive at the production line in the correct order at the right time, and the starting point for this is only the individual A demand for consumers.
