Many enterprise employees have been jubilant since they set up a system. Indeed, the efficiency of work and management has been improved. Especially in machinery manufacturing enterprises, inventory is clear and clear, sales data can be quickly reflected, and procurement is more procedural than before. What a good thing. However, I will hear some mechanical enterprise managers make a lot of remarks, and they often publicize the opening of industry 4.0 for factories and companies. Experts listen to a mask, a set of purchase, sales and storage software is so magical, it seems that industry 4.0 is too simple. So, in the end, the purchase, sale and storage software of machinery is equal to opening the road to industry 4.0 for machinery manufacturing enterprises? Let’s talk about this topic in this issue.
The value and effect of purchasing, selling and storing software
If mechanical manufacturing enterprises are compared to individuals, then the purchase, sales and inventory software is like a good medicine, which can help enterprises to get through the management of purchasing, sales, warehousing / inventory and other organs, so as to make it run smoothly. It is undoubtedly a good thing for enterprises. The cycle of purchase, sales and storage is conducive to accelerating the operation and management of enterprises, so as to improve the efficiency. In the company’s operation and sales management, the purchase, sale and storage software involves production management, product inventory management, sales management, data files, customer resource credit management, fund receipt and payment, cost and profit, etc., and it is also the product of digital management in the new era, which helps enterprises get through the operation and other issues. It has also been favored by many small and medium-sized enterprises, and is worthy of machinery Manufacturing enterprises own. But does this mean that industry 4.0 is the only way to go? Let’s take a look at the characteristics of industry 4.0.
What is industry 4.0
First understand Yuanyuan and how it came from. In 2013, Hannover industrial exposition was officially launched, aiming to improve the competitiveness of German industry and occupy the first opportunity in a new round of industrial revolution. So what does it have to do with machinery manufacturing and manufacturing? It refers to the use of the cyber physical system (CPS) to digitize and intelligentize the supply, manufacturing and sales information in production, and finally achieve fast, effective and personalized product supply. See the two core words. Digitalization and intellectualization are all related to supply, manufacturing and sales in production.
According to the summary of German industry 4.0 report, the five core characteristics of industry 4.0 are: intelligent factory, intelligent product, mass customization, employee work and network foundation. We need to have two strategies of supplier priority and market leading.
SAP understands industry 4.0
Let’s take a look at SAP’s understanding of industry 4.0 and intelligent manufacturing through the “acloudear white paper on digital transformation of mechanical equipment manufacturing enterprises” released by acloudear, an expert in digital transformation of mechanical equipment manufacturing and a platinum partner of SAP.
Let’s see if a set of purchasing, selling and storing can be enough? Intelligent process, from design to service, high integration of information technology and manufacturing technology. It is a very intelligent and systematic journey, integrating the most popular technologies such as Internet of things, big data and cloud. Therefore, we must not underestimate industry 4.0 and intelligent manufacturing.
Now understand, a set of mechanical purchase, sales and storage software is not enough to talk about industry 4.0! Therefore, the purchase, sale and stock represents industry 4.0, which also sees only trees but not forests. Although from a pragmatic point of view, the purchase, sales and storage software has brought good help to enterprise management, we hope that we can re-examine the development of machinery manufacturing enterprises at present and in the future from the cutting-edge trends of industry 4.0 and made in China 2025, so as to take the lead in the future.
Finally, it is summarized as follows:
The goal of industry 4.0 is intelligent manufacturing, and the key of intelligent manufacturing lies in the digital transformation of enterprises, helping enterprises to endow wisdom and realize intelligent enterprises. Therefore, whether it is a mechanical manufacturing enterprise or a manufacturing enterprise, the digital journey towards industry 4.0 is a long-term and continuous journey. It is not a set of software, and a system can be put into operation without worry. Only based on the digital thinking of industry 4.0 and with the help of digital technology, can we accelerate the transformation of digital and intelligent enterprises.
