November 11 2015, Wuhan—Chinese Digital Enterprise online portal e-works announced that 2015 Global Intelligent Manufacturing Forum was hosted successfully at Ramada Plaza, Wuhan Optics Valley.

The forum received wide attention from government, nation-wide IT experts and manufacturers, and domestic and overseas mainstream vendors. About 800 participants attended the forum.

There are many highlights in the first global intelligent manufacturing forum. The forum analyzed national policies of “Made-in-China 2025”, “intelligent manufacturing”, “Internet+”, and discussed technology development and opportunities for industry transformation. It was divided into two general sessions: opportunities and challenges for intelligent manufacturing and intelligent manufacturing technology outlook. Following the main sessions are two breakout sessions: intelligent equipment and smart factory, and intelligent manufacturing industrial software applications.

At the beginning of the forum, Mr. Xuebin Yan, Deputy Director of Wuhan Economic and Information Technology Commission made an opening speech on the forum. Mr. Yan said that manufacturers should have deep understandings of intelligent manufacturing before implementation and government need to guide enterprises with successful cases. Mr. Yujun Guo, Deputy Director of East-Lake Development Zone Administration Committee also made an opening speech. He introduced the status of manufacturers in East Lake Development Zone. In the good industry environment in the zone, some manufacturers are initiating intelligent manufacturing program and the committee will promote the transformation and upgrade of manufacturing as always.

Mr. Xiaopeng An, Deputy Director of Information and Software Service Industry Department, MIIT gave a speech on A New Round of Industry Transformation from the Viewpoint of Integration of Industrialization and Information. Mr. An pointed out that new conceptions of “Industry 4.0”, “Intelligent Manufacturing”, and “Internet+” on the one side have pointed out the future trends for manufacturing enterprises while on the other hand also brought more confusions and anxiety. More enterprises started to think whether it’s necessary to promote intelligent manufacturing and how to understand these conceptions systematically, comprehensively and objectively. Mr. An’s answer for that was it’s necessary to promote the integration of industrialization and information. In the course of intelligent manufacturing, data is the foundation, integration is the key and capacity is the thread.

Professor Peigen Li, Fellow of Chinese Academy of Engineering pointed out that a new model of “Internet plus advanced manufacturing plus modern service industry” will push forward new technology, new industry, new patterns, and new business forms. However right now, many Chinese enterprises are still in the late stage of Industry 2.0, so in the 13th five-year plan these enterprises should hurry up the process to the Industry 4.0. Professor Li believed that enterprises cannot neglect industrial workers’ qualities when they vigorously invested on intelligent equipment; otherwise it is very hard for China to be a world factory.
