Schneider Electric Yin Zheng: Digitalization will stimulate the development of China's economy to high quality
chinanews, November 28 - at the 2018 first China International Import Expo, which ended not long ago, Schneider Electric showed a complete set of solutions for driverless driving provided by Shanghai Baosteel. In the past, this process of lifting plates by crane required about 20 workers, and the work progress and process were generally recorded manually. After using the full set of automation products and solutions of Schneider Electric, the whole pilot workshop has reduced all 20 driving operators and several ground coordination personnel, and the average daily output has increased by 15%-30% while ensuring power reliability and personal safety. For this reason, Shanghai Baosteel hot rolling 1580 intelligent workshop using this solution is one of the few projects officially shortlisted in the Ministry of industry and information technology "2015 intelligent manufacturing pilot demonstration special action implementation plan"
Yin Zheng, global executive vice president of Schneider Electric and President of China, "digitalization will stimulate the development of China's economy to high quality, and the digitalization of traditional industrial sectors will accelerate." Yin Zheng, global executive vice president of Schneider Electric and President of China, said in an interview: "Schneider Electric helps the upgrading and transformation of Chinese industries by promoting the accelerated integration of digital economy, real economy and traditional industries."
participants and beneficiaries of reform and opening up
Schneider Electric has a history of 182 years. It entered China in 1987 and established its first joint venture in Tianjin, focusing on the flexible functions of medium and low voltage distribution and industrial automation. Yin Zheng said that at that time, Schneider Electric first introduced the circuit breaker technology - c45n circuit breaker into China, ending the era of fuse fusing and tripping; Schneider Electric also took the lead in bringing the switch panel into China, ending the era of using light cord to control switches. "These two products have entered thousands of households in China and have been popularized so far, which has greatly promoted the reliability and safety of household electricity in China." Yin Zheng said
adhering to the concept of "in China, for China; in China, for the benefit of the world", Schneider Electric adheres to and deepens the "Chinese original", fully empowers local teams, trains local talents, invests in local research and development, and creates a partner business model to make China develop into its second largest market in the world. Schneider Electric has also focused on medium and low voltage power distribution and industrial automation in China from the beginning, To development "At present, the platform has invested nearly ten million yuan to become today's leader in digital transformation in the field of energy efficiency management and automation.
Schneider Electric showed the candy factory production line model at the China International Fair.
in the past 31 years, with advanced energy efficiency management technology and products, Schneider Electric has fully participated in many Chinese energy and infrastructure construction, as well as major domestic and international events, including the Three Gorges project, the west to east gas transmission South to North Water Diversion, Ling'ao nuclear power station, Beijing Olympic Games, etc
"in the past 40 years, Schneider Electric has the honor to become an experienced person of reform and opening up, participating in and benefiting from the great changes in China." Yin Zheng said, "Schneider Electric will continue to participate in the new urbanization construction, the 13th five year plan for energy development, manufacturing power and other strategies vigorously promoted at present, and provide assistance for the next development of China and the improvement of the quality of life of the people. The structural principle analysis of plastic granulator will be improved."
digitalization is at the right time
in recent years, emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, IOT, sensors and augmented reality have developed vigorously, and all walks of life are facing the integration of information technology (it) and operation technology (OT)
not only that, with the transformation of China's economy from high-speed growth to high-quality development, information technology and digital innovation have become a new round of driving force. The state has frequently introduced strategies and plans such as innovation driven, interconnection +, intelligent manufacturing, and the 13th five year energy plan to promote the development of China's digital economy
"In the four terminal markets covered by Schneider Electric, including industry, buildings, infrastructure and data center, we see the urgent need for digital transformation. For example, in the field of industry a and operating system windows98/xp/2000 platform, enterprises are promoting capacity reduction, energy conservation and efficiency increase, and the application of digital technology has become an effective means; in the power industry, the future demand of distribution and the integrated development of digital technology will continue to promote energy Transform and develop smart electricity, optimize energy production methods and improve energy efficiency. " Yin Zheng said
driven by the development of new generation IT technology and industrial transformation and upgrading, more and more traditional enterprises such as Shanghai Baosteel take digital transformation as the strategic core to accelerate their business growth and seize future market opportunities
the confidence of digital leaders
in Yin Zheng's view, it is no accident that Schneider Electric shows its digital achievements including Baosteel at the Import Expo. In 2016, Schneider Electric launched a new generation of ecostruxure architecture and platform based on IOT, which provides end-to-end solutions in six professional fields of power distribution, information technology, building, machinery, factory and electricity for the four terminal markets of buildings, data centers, industry and infrastructure, enabling the digital transformation of users and partners
"in the process of China's digital economy, Schneider Electric has been actively participating in the optimization of energy and process through the IOT connection of energy, automation and software and analysis, as well as the integration of information technology (it) and operation technology (OT)." Yin Zheng said
based on Schneider Electric's accumulated experience in energy efficiency management, digital transformation and industry application over the years, Yin Zheng believes that Schneider Electric has its own characteristics and advantages in promoting digital transformation. First of all, we should provide users with a platform and architecture that is as flexible, open and scalable as ecostruxure. Secondly, the integration of IT technology and ot technology requires a considerable understanding of the application scenarios in the steel, cement, airport, electronics and other industries, and Schneider Electric has been committed to a deep insight into the industry. Third, build a circle of friends. There are many customer needs, and no company can provide all the solutions. The best way is to work with partners to integrate an overall solution that best meets the specific needs of customers. Fourth, from the design, manufacturing, operation to maintenance stages, the data chain should be connected into the whole industry chain, and then analyzed to realize the management of the whole life cycle
based on this, Schneider Electric has started a series of practices. In addition to the previously mentioned case of Shanghai Baosteel unmanned driving, Schneider Electric also provides design suggestions for China building materials to adjust and optimize the process; Provide intelligent products and solutions to Su Shimin College of Tsinghua University to reduce energy consumption; Realize the digitalization of all production lines for Hanwei technology, and improve its production efficiency and capacity. From traditional industries to new industries, from leading enterprises to small and medium-sized enterprises, Schneider Electric's practice blooms everywhere
in Yin Zheng's view, digital transformation is not a goal, but a means. It will eventually bring a more efficient and high-quality production and living environment, and a lower carbon and green living space. "Schneider Electric hopes to raise energy efficiency management and green manufacturing to a new level with digitalization, and grasp development opportunities with Chinese customers and partners."
