Looking to the future, Mr. Zhou knows every step of the way!
Moving into the future with collaborative manufacturing.
At present, the orders of ALLPCB are mostly "small" R&D-level prototyping orders, accounting for more than 80%, followed by bulk orders. The income ratio of the two is 1:2. Mr. Zhou expects that the ratio will become 1:9 in a near future.
90% of the bulk orders will be transferred to the collaborative factories. There are currently 6 factories cooperated, and the target is 100 factories. These 100 factories are jointly manufactured under the support of systems such as IOCT to form a "Super Factory".
The core feature of the "Super Factory" is super collaborative, not just about factory size or amount. Mr. Zhou believes that "Industrial Interconnection" (Industry 4.0) is not enough to express the business model of the industrial Internet, but more important, it is to collaborate to form a system.
"The so-called Super Factory, which is equivalent to a factory and 'super' is being defined as breaking the boundaries between factories, thus becoming super-cooperative systems with a large-scale." This is similar to the concept of the "web", presented by Mr. Zheng Ming, the chairman of the academic committee of Alibaba Group and the director of the University of Lakeside.
Is the future of "Super Factory" a flexible supply chain that people are familiar with? Mr. Zhou explained that the "Super Factory" equipped with industrial Internet must be a perfect combination of a flexible online platform and a rigid factory in the future.
Looking at an example, ALLPCB is an Internet and flexible platform where it receives orders and cooperates with the upstream and downstream factories respectively. It becomes the order center and the collaborative center. Under an effective system collaboration, the rigid factory will be more productive. Labors become more diversified and professional. A factory can focus on one process, such as the production of screw caps.
Flexibility (online) is the downstream for a concern of personal consumption, and while Rigidity (factories) is the basis of collaboration to guarantee the production efficiency.
Nowadays, there is an overcapacity in China's manufacturing industry.
"Industrial Internet" is a solution to electronics manufacturing and completes the establishment of "Super Factories" by "Collaborative Systems". "In this sense, the essence of the industrial Internet is supply-side reform."
ALLPCB is an ultrafast PCB super factory as well as an Internet-based manufacturing company, committed to building an electronic collaborative manufacturing service platform. It offers professional one-stop service, including PCB prototype, PCB Assembly and components sourcing. Since founding, ALLPCB has reconstructed the traditional PCB industry by data-driven technology.
