Under the background of the era of information domination, manufacturing factories around the world urgently seek a production management mode that incorporates information technology and seeks digital transformation to improve the core competitiveness of enterprises. In the domestic manufacturing industry, GMCC, which has many years of compressor manufacturing experience, creatively integrates the four intelligent platforms, holds up the victory flag of "Digital Factory", and demonstrates the strength of Chinese manufacturing today on the international stage.

Thinking of Industry 4.0, efficient collaboration of four intelligent platforms
Under the impact of the menacing Industry 4.0, traditional manufacturing companies have exposed the shortcomings of long value stream cycles, many non-standard parts, large storage areas, and no information islands in series. The development of enterprises is facing severe challenges. At the time of the radical renovation and upgrading of factories in various places, GMCC relied on information technology and digital technology to introduce intelligent equipment, and built four intelligent platforms: agile HCM, real-time HCS, dynamic MES, and lean WMS, respectively, corresponding to production plan scheduling. , Procurement plan preparation, production data collection and warehousing and logistics four functions, to achieve an integrated, visualized, information-based agile digital factory, to accelerate the promotion of industrial upgrading. The GMCC's four intelligent platforms integrate the closed-loop manufacturing coordination system of plan-driven, procurement coordination, logistics coordination, and manufacturing execution through efficient collaboration and integration, with significant improvement effects. For example, after the GMCC put into digital construction, it reduced the number of operating steps in the manufacturing process, planned production scheduling time by nearly 3 hours, and realized the real-time collection and upload of key production data. The monthly inventory differences were greatly reduced; the logistics area realized a reduction in storage area 36%, 50% reduction in daily delivery distance.

Integration of four major platforms to build a GMCC digital factory
In the information age, manufacturing enterprises urgently need to establish a networked manufacturing model that faces market demands and has a fast response mechanism in the face of changes in the manufacturing environment. Accelerating digital transformation has become an inevitable choice for enterprises to maintain their competitiveness. Each of the four intelligent platforms of GMCC has its own functions, serving procurement, production scheduling, production, and logistics. Together, they can form a complete closed-loop information flow and build a digital manufacturing plant.
In the agile HCM platform, it has the functions of inventory management of semi-finished products, automatic optimization of production scheduling, and powerful risk reminders. It is intuitively displayed on the display screen, and has strong visibility and human-machine integration, which is beneficial to overall capacity and resource planning. In the real-time HCS platform, purchasers can complete all operations such as demand analysis, order placement, and tracking of arrival in one interface, which is simple and convenient. In addition, production managers can monitor supplier production and inventory in real time to ensure supply and demand balance. In the dynamic MES platform, the Manufacturing Execution Management System (MES) is the basic technical means for GMCC to implement agile manufacturing strategies and achieve agile production on the shop floor. Real-time acquisition, kanban display, and application of big data technology enable digital decision-making, provide analysis basis for the improvement of production site management, and have high accuracy. In the Lean WMS platform, the intelligent warehouse logistics system can track the material movement and status throughout the process, using barcodes as the information carrier, and Kanban to improve logistics efficiency. GMCC employees can also pull through the warehouse, call by light, plan-driven, and timed. The system is driven to deliver the materials to the corresponding locations on time and on demand.

Interlocking and merging with each other. GMCC implements an integrated lean information system implementation strategy, builds a lean management system based on HCM, HCS, MES, and WMS, provides decision-making support for production site management, and realizes a digital factory with collaborative production, supply, and sales, and seamless information linkage.
Digital future, GMCC creates integrated lean information system
Digitalization has helped build the factory of the future. After integrating the four platforms, GMCC has built an integrated lean information system based on the value chain. In the GMCC "digital factory", transformation results such as production line automation and big data analysis technology have provided strong help for enterprises to improve their core competitiveness and market share. In addition, through the implementation of the lean logistics system, GMCC canceled centralized warehouses and fully implemented line-side warehouses to achieve a seamless connection between production and sales, and the market response speed was significantly accelerated. Through continuous exploration and improvement, all three GMCC factories have built an integrated lean information system, which has truly formed an interconnected and vertically integrated intelligent manufacturing based on information systems as neural networks, intelligent logistics as industrial blood, automation equipment and robots as the backbone system.

In the wave of digitalization, intelligence, and informationization, the "digital factory" must be a new milestone in the manufacturing industry. Through pioneering innovations by companies such as GMCC, they can fully demonstrate for small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises, and can jointly promote the rapid development of China's manufacturing industry and even the global manufacturing industry!
