2020 February 26, the global management consulting firm McKinsey today released the white paper “Global” Lighthouse factory “Network: The latest insights from the fourth industrial revolution forefront of the” Chinese version. The paper is co-authored the World Economic Forum and McKinsey, by focusing on advanced manufacturing leader – “Lighthouse factory”, and in-depth analysis of 14 end to end “lighthouse factory” successful transformation, as other companies deploy technology to get rid of. ” pilot dilemma “for reference. China not only has a “lighthouse factory” than any other country, but also the end to end “Lighthouse factory” the largest number of countries, once again confirms the strong strength of China’s advanced manufacturing industry. Recently, affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, as the Chinese economy, “the cornerstone” of the manufacturing sector has also been some impact, but we have deep confidence in the strength of China’s manufacturing industry, I believe that it can spend the stress Copyright Control Engineering All , continue to drive the Chinese economy to improve. To this end, the current urgent need for manufacturing companies to take strategic initiatives to resume production and orderly return to work to overcome the epidemic caused short-term pain. Then long-term perspective, will accelerate the digital transformation as a top priority, to further enhance the toughness of the supply chain, to achieve high-quality development. In this process, we recommend that the majority of Chinese manufacturing enterprises learn from and integration “lighthouse factory” of success.
“lighthouse Factory” New features: open-end value chain, to obtain larger benefits
Up to now, the World Economic Forum’s Global “lighthouse factory” network has 44 members, of which 12 located in China. In the application of the fourth industrial revolution Technically, they crossed the “pilot” dilemma, made a qualitative leap in operational and financial performance, the successful realization of the digital transition. White Paper pointed out that all the “Lighthouse factories” have been successful transformation at the factory level. But it is worth noting that the sudden emergence of 14, opened the end of the value chain, the fourth industrial revolution innovation journey to expand beyond the physical plant areas. Which it is also known as end to end “lighthouse factory.” Our survey shows that the entire end to end value chain, the world’s best digital “Lighthouse factory” network use cases has reached 92, include digital manufacturing, supply network docking, end to end product development, end to end planning, to-end delivery, customer docking, multiple aspects of sustainability. With further maturation fourth industrial revolution, the use case library content digital technology will be more abundant. McKinseyGlobal Senior Managing Partner, Asia and transform their business operations consulting business head of China Yi Jiarui (Karel Eloot) said: “The end to end ‘Lighthouse factories’ proven digital technology breakthrough if the scope of entities in the factory and then the entire value chain force CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , then the agility and speed-to-market enterprises will be greatly enhanced, mass customization will be more opportunities. At the same time, they create new operators the system can be added at minimal cost in the shortest possible time digitized more use cases, compared with the traditional operational systems to obtain incremental improvements through sustained funding companies, which end ‘Lighthouse factories’ have a higher return on investment. “end-to-digital transformation of Chinese manufacturing enterprises a stronger desire
To date, 12 located in China’s” beacon factory “, there are seven open-end whole value chain CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright [ 123], accounting for half of the world end to end “lighthouse factory”. On their different interests and value chain stakeholders to cooperate to rebuild the customer experience. With the help of digital technology, they can be mass-produced on-demand product, and share data in real time with suppliers to respond quickly to demand fluctuations. In addition, with data sharing and predictive analysis, this entire process can be optimized. China to end a “lighthouse factory” as an example Control Engineering Copyright , in order to accurately identify customer needs and reduce costs, the “lighthouse Factory” was the digital transformation of open-end value chain, driven networking technology and artificial intelligence, its development cycle by 20% and operating costs by 35%. Another Chinese-end “Lighthouse Factory” user-centric, the implementation of mass customization business model, through the deployment of scalable digital platform (such as mass customization and B2C online ordering, and suppliers connected to the digital platform), the direct labor productivity increased by 28% and achieved 100% on-time delivery. McKinsey experts, Tsinghua digital capacity development McKinsey Center for Hou Wenhao said: “Through the study of China 12 Beacon factory ‘, we find: a comparison with other countries, Chinese manufacturers are more willing to embrace the whole end to end digital transformation of the value chain. At the same time, theThe individual needs of users in the country’s growing brand increasingly competitive electricity supplier business is booming and so on, are also in Forced Chinese enterprises to develop end-to-digital transformation. Second, the Chinese-end ‘Lighthouse factory’ is not flourishing in the choice of digital use case, but from the user, products, benefits and other dimensions, to develop the most appropriate digital business blueprint. “People-oriented, win-win cooperation, to accelerate the digital transformation white paper also pointed out that” Lighthouse Factory “people-oriented
Control Engineering Copyright , fully enabling employees to release potential impact in the fourth industrial revolution under the staff’s responsibilities and skills needs changing. when asked “to respond fourth industrial revolution, factories need skills training”, “lighthouse factory” is the answer to the first three accounted for data analysis, technical equipment operating skills, fourth Industrial Revolution technology and the use of digital tools. It is worth noting that not a “lighthouse plant” rely on it alone to complete the digital transition, without exception, they help a partnership to jointly develop or acquire new knowledge. we the survey shows that 55% of the “Lighthouse factory” with universities or other educational institutions of cooperation, in order to gain knowledge and talent .71% of the “Lighthouse factory” College is committed to building internal capacity and capacity-building centers. six core Fu digital conversion factors can help Although the “beacon factory” transformation methods vary, but Experience has shown that six core critical factor in the successful transformation and achieve large-scale benefits in are: First, to support continued work with agile iterative, agile way of working enables organizations to predict technical limitations, and limitations occurred calm break the bottleneck; Second, improve the technology ecosystem and deepen synergies, leading organizations are increasing the number of partners, to inject itself into the endless vitality and ability; Third, enhance staff skills through Polytechnical things, focus on the development of effective technology learning methods, such as the introduction of gamification, learning how to employ digital and virtual reality, augmented reality learning tool; Fourth, the choice can be extended industrial IOT / data infrastructure, even on the deployment of this architecture before early digital transformation of enterprise the most ability to achieve exponential expansion throughout the organization; V. agile digital studio set up to stimulate creativity, so turn interpreters, data engineers, ERP systems engineers, product managers and agile mentor equivalent in a room, to quickly deliver results, and rapid iteration; Sixth, the establishment of turnType office to support the entire enterprise reform, support the exchange of best practice and prioritization of focus and effectiveness of solutions. McKinsey Global Managing Partner, China, automotive and advanced industrial consulting business leader Wang Ping said: “The more successful digital transformation of enterprises, the stronger ability to resist risks to the outbreak, for example
Control Engineering Copyright [. 123], a home ‘lighthouse plants’ covers the whole of intelligent manufacturing plant, its workers and engineers, even in the same shop, you can also ‘do not meet production’ to achieve a stable fight the epidemic correct. I think the new crown or even pneumonia outbreak may encourage more enterprises to accelerate the pace of digital transformation, prompting them to hard skills, enhance operational toughness, and thus resist all kinds of uncertainties. the World economic Forum’s global beacon factory ‘network continues to look for advanced manufacturing paradigm, we expect to see more Chinese companies have joined the network, the vanguard and pioneer attitude, bring the whole Chinese manufacturing industry to accelerate the transformation of high-quality development. “ click here to download the” global “Lighthouse factory” network: from the first four new insight into cutting-edge industrial revolution, “the Chinese version of the full text.
