Nobel Prize winner, mathematician, philosopher Bertrand Russell once said, “Smart began to conquer fear.” As a starting in 2012, threw himself into the IoT enjoy this marathon participants, these words can always aroused my sympathy. There are numerous industrial site of “uncertainty”, uncertainty in the production process, uncertainty of market demand, competition pattern of uncertainty, uncertainty about the future … It starts with our industrial intelligent face the fear of uncertainty, and the desire to conquer these uncertainties. This week, I am honored to be invited to participate in “deconstruction of Things Industry Future” book club, and Dr. An Xiaopeng, Dr. Yang Ruixiang, industrial and things practitioner who hearty deep read in conjunction with live events. ” reconstruction: digital transformation logic, “” intellectual networking · new thinking “the essence of the two books. The book club has set up 352 live venues, attracted nearly 20,000 visitors to watch and discuss, and interact through Facebook and realize the industrial entrepreneurs from Taiwan. In reading the meeting, Dr. An Xiaopeng on the topic of “digital large change in the situation, who is going to define this era? “Keynote speech, followed by a round-table dialogue, chairman of Advantech’s Liuke Zhen sat side by side with us, answered questions from the interactive industry entrepreneurs. In this different point of view influx of emission-intensive environment, causing me to rethink a lot of problems. With the words Leung: Inspired better recognition. He is the handful of digital transformation has to think deeply wise man, he could prompt us to look up the road at the same time doing things down, take us from the bottom of the core issues Watch logical thinking. He gave away the blind spot of the original thinking, logical and programs for us, let us conquer the uncertainty of the road go more discipline. Here I will share with you Leung bring my three inspired: ● how things break industry vision blind spot? ● how to break through the integrated application predicament? ● How to rethink the digital transition of power? 01 Industrial things: from single intelligence to the system intelligent Buffett has a saying, “the habit of shackles, the beginning of the light difficult to detect, then it was heavy not get rid of.”
We promote the digital transformation has been for some time why many are still stuck in an infinite loop when kept local pilot, unable to form a global system, ecological value and replicability? This look at our past and resolve to askHabits problem. Our point of view in the past to solve the problem, often punctate and localized. If you only focus on technology, only to see the next level, lack of strategic planning and business leads, it is easy to fall into a variety of errors. Always took the old maps, not into the new road. Out of this mindset, but also from the nature of intelligence. Industrial intelligent reason starts to overcome uncertainties, causing a lot of uncertainty: the manufacturing process itself is more complex, customized user needs to make production more flexible, improve the cost makes it difficult to increase profits growing … this uncertainty and complexity has reached unimaginable levels. Boeing, for example, in the development of its 787 aircraft, using a variety of software 8000, in addition to less than 1000 kinds of software outsourcing business, there are 7,000 kinds of their own proprietary software, design on Boeing aircraft, technology and knowledge this experience can condense 7,000 kinds of software, once a part of a problem, will be devastating impact on the entire system. Industry Intelligence is the basis to resolve these uncertainties. An industrial firm, a production line in the end whether the intelligence, is not it how many smart devices, there is no use of artificial intelligence, there is no use of big data analysis, these are not important …… is important that a business, whether on a production line changes in the external environment and make real-time response. Various techniques, networking, big data, cloud computing, for an industrial firm, what is the value? Single technology alone does not create value; these technologies piled up together, not be able to create value. Were using a variety of techniques may not be able to realize the digital transition. Value depends on the application scenario rather than the technology itself. Highly personalized industrial scene, others useful technology Control Engineering Copyright , not necessarily useful to you. The key is not to look at these technologies facilitate automatic flow of all kinds of data, the right information, at the right time, the right way, is sent to the right people, help managers make the right decisions digital transformation contains multiple levels , dimensions and logic, have to start from the global, overall perspective. If we do things industrial projects, still only starting from the existing technology and data, is likely to fall into the business of limited value and other errors.
From the perspective of the echoes local to global, industry is moving things to transition from stand-alone intelligent intelligent system. Michael Porter in the pastA few years, things around the industry, all interconnected published three important papers. Key information he passed that, regardless of hardware, software, platform, are facing a new era, a continued decoupling and Reconstruction era. Michael Porter intelligent interconnect products broken down into four modules: ● Power unit ● ● intelligent execution component parts ● They synergy, intelligent products can be monitored interconnect components, can be controlled, can be optimized. In order to conquer the uncertainties , the evolution of intelligent interconnect products will form a separate decoupling hardware and software, breaking past the integration of hardware facilities to achieve “universal hardware resources.” and “service task programmable.”
“universal hardware resources” and “service tasks programmable” meaning that: ● improve the versatility of hardware assets: Follow the economies of scale, can be mass production of standardized products, reduce production costs. ● software-rich personalized products: Follow the economies of scope, corporate shift from providing homogeneous products to provide diversified products to meet diverse needs. Through this decoupling and reconstruction, industrial things into the system from a stand-alone intelligent smart stage, so that we can in a larger spatial and temporal scales, through systematic global perspective to deal with the uncertainties. Digital transformation of misunderstanding, first from the limit of vision. Only the extended field of vision from the device level to system level, extending from the stand-alone intelligent to intelligent systems, in order to break through the visual blind spot. 02 The question today from yesterday’s solutions you can see how far in the past, you can see how far in the future. After breaking the digital transformation of the visual blind spot, you will find that today’s problems from yesterday’s solutions. If the crack is still tomorrow’s problems with today’s methods, then turn into another endless loop. Critical essay that today can not continue to use logic, thinking scene and applications of tomorrow.
We look at yesterday’s solutions to today what we bring to the issue. The first is the integrated application predicament. This is before my article, “the depth of interpretation in the Internet arena industry self-styled” Man’s “”, there were mentioned. Simply put, integrated application predicament is because in the past decades, the development of IT and OT is to supply a fragmented history, our basic ideas to solve the problem is to solve a local problem, the problem to a pointExpanded to a line of questions. This has resulted When we migrate from single applications to integrated applications , need to be overcome many difficulties and challenges, an inattentive will fall into the plight of integrated applications.
Today we are faced with the plight of application integration is inevitable, this is a result of successful programs in the past caused. So when we think about the future based on today, breaking the visual blind spot is the premise, from cognitive to be a small point, the perspective of a line, up to a cross-sectional dimension, a whole perspective. But that is not enough. In the past we discuss the digital transition, the road map seems to have a lot of time to determine, first of automation, digitization, and the network, intelligent, step by step in order to move forward. But in fact, the practice of observing tells us that is not the case. Real steps are jumping, it is possible without going through each stage, we will be able to directly form a closed loop digital transformation. We are facing a new set of architecture, both IT and OT are in the reconstruction of infrastructure. In the past we travel further advance in the secondary roads, highway, step by step by step transformation of industrial automation. And now we have a new runway for a traveling directly to the highway, there will be a substantial change from the development path. On the other hand, while planning roadmap, industrial enterprises should also identify the niche. The moment, the synergy between industrial enterprises increasingly close, the chain-like structure between each enterprise and upstream and downstream enterprises are transformed into ecological value network. Finding the right position in the ecosystem, it plays an important role, but also the necessary condition to achieve digital transformation. In short, today’s logic no longer apply tomorrow. Digital transformation, environment, scenarios, the application has changed, logic and problem-solving should also follow the changes. From the point of view of development path Control Engineering Copyright , automation, digital, networked, intelligent order is not a relationship; from the industrial relations point of view, the need to establish ecological thinking, prospective niche card, bear ecology the roles and responsibilities. 03 Rethinking the digital transition of power after the reconstruction of our vision and logic Correspondingly, the system architecture of the system is also being deconstruction and reconstruction. In the past we provide customers with hardware, software solutions, and today we not only need to provide hardware and software solutions to our customers, we also need to work with clients Control Engineering Copyright , for the customer’s customerUsers to create more value. So the whole system architecture is constantly on the move, the existing system is constantly decoupled form a micro-service resource pools based on business units, data sets, in Taiwan’s technology, the role-oriented scenario, applications, companies are facing rapid resolution complex issues. Ecology and platform accompanied by Aioi. Rise algorithm market, the industrial core of things ecological. Only when mature third-party developers to reach a certain number, the formation of mutual promotion between APP industrial applications and industrial users, two-way iteration of positive feedback, it means things industrial ecology.
data units, business units, industry APP, micro-services component … these new concepts to guide us into the new road, discovered the New World. In this era of the great migration architecture, not only thinking, logic and methods are being reconstructed, and even the concept of the system should be reconstructed. These reconstructed only digital transformation starting point. Management guru Peter Drucker said: “An effective management of the enterprise should be bland.” Truly good management of enterprise, external look is calm, each person carry out their duties. On the contrary, those who look all day long in full swing, bustling businesses, often the lack of execution, strong randomness. Good business, know that continuous improvement, progressive truth. The starting point of the digital transformation is breaking the original vision, to create a new awareness. Cognitive difference is not so is not willing to embrace change, but to how fast and in what way to embrace change? Is there a long-term thinking? Is there determined to promote cultural change? Digital transformation is the edge of a revolution. Emphasis is not on what you do, but rather what you do more than the competition? Is not that what you do, and that your customers really feel what? Is not that what you do, but rather what you build new capabilities? For businesses, whether or not to start the digital transition, no matter how aggressively, pushing the speed of the digital revolution, are at risk and uncertainties. In many cases, the risk of transformation is not determined, the transformation proceeds is uncertain. In many cases, the digital transition of power not because the earnings can be expected, but not the cost of the transition unbearable. In many cases, the transformation engine is not a business themselves, but competitors. Today, for most businesses, not because of the digital transformation like change, but had to change. I was in the [female] Heart Sutra column, a regular topic is not only of thingsA new technology, but also a new thinking A thinking about production, operations, sales of new ways. This requires not only the number one enterprise refresh knowledge, but also need to continue learning and attitudinal changes within the company of all, before we can realize the full potential of the Internet of Things industry, which completely changed the way we do things and management strategies. “I do not exclude, not blind obedience, take the initiative to embrace the new world of digital.” This is Leung’s conclusion. This Summary: 1. Industrial things will bring to the stand-alone intelligent system intelligent stage, so that we can in a larger spatial and temporal scales, through systematic global perspective to deal with the uncertainties. 2. Today’s logic no longer apply tomorrow. Digital transformation, environment, scenarios, the application has changed, logic and problem-solving should also follow the changes. From the point of view of development path Control Engineering Copyright , automation, digital, networked, intelligent order is not a relationship. From the industrial relations point of view, the need to establish ecological thinking, quasi-card niche, assume the role and responsibilities of Ecology. 3. In this era of the great migration architecture, not only thinking, logic and methods are being reconstructed, and even the concept of the system should be reconstructed, and the reconstruction of these only the digital transformation of the starting point.
