Plan aims for intelligent manufacturing

CHINA yesterday released its five-year plan for intelligent manufacturing in a bid to increase competitiveness in the “factory of the world.”

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology published the blueprint for the 2016-2020 period at the World Intelligent Manufacturing Summit that opened in Nanjing yesterday.

The plan is a long-term strategy to develop intelligent manufacturing to generate new growth to improve the country’s manufacturing sector.

The blueprint calls for an acceleration of development in intelligent equipment and key common technologies, setting-up of intelligent manufacturing standards, more intelligent manufacturing trials, and promoting intelligent transformation in key sectors and small and medium-sized companies.

Zhu Sendi, a counselor with the China Machinery Industry Federation, said Chinese manufacturers are at different productivity levels, and many low-cost factories need to catch up with the world in productivity.

You Zheng, vice president of Tsinghua University, said the huge domestic demand offers bright prospects for intelligent manufacturing.

The industrial upgrading of the manufacturing sector globally also forces Chinese firms to upgrade, said Huang Xing, chairman of Sinomach Intelligence Technology.
