Today, , the global manufacturing industry is undergoing rapid development. 3D printing, virtual design technology advances and the entire production chain in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and other more closely in all aspects of communication, is bringing new opportunities.

Beijing Tsinghua University doctoral tutor, vice president Zheng Li said: “In the past we have large-scale production as a mainstream production model, then we have a lean manufacturing but we are now seeing new. the prototype model showing off. “in this mode, engineers, scientists, designers and everyone involved in the manufacture of a decade ago can be realized dream of things. This is a new world of manufacturing. The new labor market opportunities, however, in all the discussion about new opportunities, there is a weak link. Traditional logistics and manufacturing model is being phased out, the future prospects for the industry remain uncertain. According to projections, “the World Economic Forum report,” the recently released 2025 most of the manufacturing work will be completed machinery, which will result in 7.5 million jobs lost. At the same time, according to the forecast of the report, the new relationship between human labor and machine-based AI formed was able to create 133 million jobs. In addition, the report also predicted that with the further popularization of freelance and part-time labor, the labor market will change dramatically. New opportunities emerged only those who master the new technologies to grasp. The new technology will also look to subvert our educational system itself. In fact, according to the field of view of a well-known scholar, because the staff was not ready for such a new situation fully prepared for the new time change is imperative. Michael Grieves, executive director of the Florida Institute of Technology, Advanced Manufacturing and Design Innovation Center (CAMID) said: “We need to train students in the 21st century, as they are ready to deal with the skills needed to work in the 21st century.” Moreover, he adds: “for young people who are about to enter the work force, we need to help them from an early stage began to cultivate the skills needed to obtain employment.” will be linked to a fundamental transformation of technology and business of manufacturing today is to change the focus of manufacturing: from the product itself for the productionProduct applications. The industry is rising and the “experience economy” to fight. In the experience economy, consumers will reduce the concern possession, and raise awareness of the experience or the results obtained. Grieves said: “They did not want a drill, but boring.” Technology itself is not the business of priorities, the purpose of technology is to achieve business objectives: automation, for example, the use of automation not only to increase productivity or quality CONTROL Copyright ENGINEERING China , but also to reduce costs. Professor Zheng Li said: “We need to understand the reasons for the use of a technology if we are clear objectives , we can effectively deploy talent CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , correct. play the role of new technologies, which requires technology and operations will be linked to performance. not only is the purchase of hardware and software problems and then assembled in the workshop, which is closer and employee relations. you have to train employees, but also must change their thinking work , change the way, this is a transformation. technology investment is only the first step, after the completion of this step, companies need to invest time, energy and management, in order to succeed. technology is still the driving force of transformation. in the past we have only solved equation 10 variables. but we now feature more powerful. by using such a calculation function, whether in the factory or in the whole cyberspace, we have achieved intelligent manufacturing and optimize data-driven. “how Augmented reality to change this one of the biggest manufacturing industry development status is augmented reality (AR) technology. Computer images, data, or any other type of information into the user’s field of vision. For example, technicians wearing smart glasses when viewing a fan, can “see” the useful data superimposed on the machine related to the fan. This can be a huge trainees and security benefits. Staff can learn how to properly use the AR glasses assembling apparatus: AR glasses instructions can be superimposed on the device, but also with clear lines and arrows identify the correct direction of the mounting assembly. Therefore, employees can accelerate the learning speed, saving training time and training funds. In addition, the use of AR technology in the station equipment to provide instructions for the staff, but also to improve occupational safety. French Graduate School of Engineering, National Institute of French Engineering TechnologyPresident Laurent Champaney said: “Augmented reality is a real revolution.” This revolution implies a birth “touched everyone in the enterprise at every level of the new communication mode”. He said however that it will also lead to “complicated problems.” Opportunities and challenges of big data Champaney representation , a new communication technology also allows manufacturers to businesses through its partners to share information to create value, but how best to play the role of big data remain He is in doubt. In this day and age, hackers rampant, concerns about online data security is increasing. Security will become a major problem in manufacturing. Champaney said: “Data is everywhere, but the protection of data is a major problem in the enterprise.” With the advent of the era of big data, this problem will always exist.
