Various countries around the world are actively laying out the construction of the Industrial Internet, the core purpose of which is to promote industrial integration with an architectural system, spawn technological innovation and promote industrial upgrading.

China’s Industrial Internet Development released the “Industrial Internet Architecture (Version 2.0)” from a system engineering methodology, which combines the characteristics of industrial manufacturing, different methodologies in software and communication architecture design, incorporates new technologies in network, data and security and highlights the basic functional principles of digital twin, defines the architecture 2.0 from three perspectives: business view, functional architecture and implementation framework, and forms a framework that is driven by business objectives and business needs. The design concept is based on the business objectives and business requirements, and then the definition of system functions and implementation deployment methods are clarified. The goal is to guide enterprises to clarify the business objectives and business needs of digital transformation from the role and path of industrial Internet for industrial development.

Intelligent Industrial Data Empowerment for High-end Manufacturing. The implementation of new technologies for the Industrial Internet can effectively meet the rich and diverse practical needs of enterprises. The integration and development of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, edge computing and 5G with manufacturing processes promote the development of technical solutions and improve the practical guidance of the Industrial Internet in industrial applications. Intelligent industrial data empowered high-end manufacturing highlights the core driving position of data in intelligent production, based on industrial data to achieve intelligent product design and production and lifecycle management, integration of enterprise control systems and management systems, and normalization of industrial data protection and external attack defense.

The core function of the Industrial Internet is to achieve comprehensive and deep interconnection and intelligent analysis of physical and digital space based on data interaction. Data interaction realizes the mutual understanding of information transmitted between each unit module, so that data and information can be effectively transmitted among various elements and systems, and systems of different structures can understand each other at the data level, thus improving the efficiency of resource allocation and information integration capability. Under the trend of digital development, the high-end manufacturing industry forms a production and operation mode, resource organization mode and business model with data as the core driver to improve operational efficiency, innovation capability and cost reduction.

Industrial Internet big data mining technology can store, clean and analyze the data generated by the manufacturing process of enterprises, conduct statistical and correlation mining on historical data, extract the information implied in the data, and these statistical results will play an important role in the enterprises’ own assessment and decision making, and improve their own business.

Industrial Internet leads the new industry. At present, China’s industrial Internet innovation and development strategy is being implemented in depth, and industrial Internet-enabled high-end manufacturing will further give rise to integration and innovation applications, give new impetus to the transformation and upgrading development of various industries, promote extensive industrial innovation, and be of great significance to the high-quality development of social economy.

In the application of big data smelting platform, the traditional ironmaking operation is still based on experience, with different workers operating at different levels, and there is great room for the industry to rise in the level of digitalization and scientificization. Jiangsu Jiangyin Xingcheng Special Steel established the industrial Internet-based, blast furnace data as the core of the big data processing center, breaking the traditional ironmaking blast furnace reactor “black box” working state diagnosis difficult bottleneck.

It has improved the digitalization and networking of the iron-making production line. The combination of historical data mining and analysis on the platform side and real-time intelligent monitoring on the edge side creates a “cloud-side collaboration” application, which effectively utilizes the information contained in the data and plays a good role in predictive analysis and guidance for future production optimization.

In the digital logistics management application, the industrial Internet is based on digital technology to improve the information level and efficiency of logistics assembly, which is mainly reflected in two aspects: intelligent logistics factory and intelligent logistics equipment. Smart logistics factory mainly studies digital logistics system to create a highly flexible logistics integration model; smart logistics equipment is about to apply intelligent technologies such as robotics, flexible manufacturing and Internet of Things to commodity sorting, distribution and process management to improve the intelligence of the logistics process.

In the 5G-based edge computing digital factory application, for example, the high-end equipment intelligent manufacturing production line jointly built by Longchamp Group and Shandong Mobile, which combines 5G high speed and the capability of edge computing platform, realizes interconnection and interoperability between different production units, intelligent scheduling, customized design for customer needs, flexible production and intelligent control of the whole process, becoming a model factory with automation, modularization and flexible manufacturing in It has become an intelligent model factory integrating automation, modularization and flexible manufacturing.

The industrial Internet covers a wide range of industries, including energy, electricity, transportation and other real economy fields, as well as machinery and equipment, chemical products, electronic information and other manufacturing industries can be deeply integrated with the industrial Internet. The innovative development of the industrial Internet will continue to give birth to new manufacturing industries such as personalized customization, shared manufacturing and reasonable deployment, and promote the leap forward development of China’s high-end manufacturing industry.

At the same time, it should be recognized that the construction and implementation of the industrial Internet will be a long-term and complex system project, which is currently at the early stage of development. At present, the depth and breadth of digital transformation of enterprises are insufficient, and the actual coverage rate of industrial Internet is about 15%; 5G business model is still being explored, and its network deployment is complicated and standardization is difficult; cross-border integration between industries is not sufficient, and the differences in segmentation are large, and all these factors still restrict the popularization and application of industrial Internet in China.
