Machinery industry is the pillar industry of our national economy, the machinery industry information can promote machinery manufacturing enterprises to improve the market reaction speed, improve production flexibility, strengthen the cost control, enable enterprises to calmly deal with the fierce competitive environment, improve competitiveness. Therefore, the information construction machinery industry has attracted great attention of the state and enterprises. After 20 years of development, the application of information technology in machinery industry has made some progress, the degree of information at the forefront of the industry. But overall, the tight integration of machinery industry is still a lack of information systems and services.
From the development level of machinery industry enterprise informatization, can be divided into the following four aspects:
One is the product level. In the mechanical product into information technology and computer technology, improve product quality, functional level, technical content and added value, including product design and manufacturing techniques, such as CAD, cam (Computer Aided Manufacturing), CAPP (computer aided process through process design) and other technology.
Two is the process level. The manufacturing process of automatic control technology through the implementation of production, production automation, including the use of numerical control machining production line of CNC equipment, etc..
Three is the management level. The integrated management system of enterprise information and enterprise internal management using computer system, such as the implementation of enterprise resource planning system (ERP), supply chain management system (SCM).
The four is the market level. Enterprises through the Internet to carry out e-commerce, can reduce the intermediate link, reduce sales costs, improve market competitiveness, such as the implementation of customer relationship management system (CRM), to carry out e-commerce, etc..
After 20 years of development, the application of information technology in the machinery industry has made some progress, the level of information in the country among the forefront of the industry. China's single application and small system applications have been widespread, the two dimensional CAD penetration rate of machinery industry enterprises in the industry in the first place. In down-to-earth to carry out on the basis of the application of CAD technology, companies began to enter the ERP, ERP software / system penetration rate also ranks the industry, machinery industry, CAPP, cam, PDM (Product Data Management) software / system application popularization rate is the highest, a few large-scale machinery enterprise informationization has been close to the level of large international companies. But from the whole point of view, the machinery industry is still lack of information systems and business integration.
