Steel Industry and Industrial Internet

The Industrial Internet is the infrastructure for the iron and steel industry to implement vertical integration, horizontal integration, and end-to-end integration of intelligent manufacturing. We need to accelerate the building of the Industrial Internet to empower the digital transformation of the steel industry.


The iron and steel industry has made remarkable achievements in building the Industrial Internet, and large and medium-sized iron and steel enterprises have built the Industrial Internet in different ways. China Baowu and Ansteel Group have conducted research and discussion on the Internet system architecture and application architecture of the iron and steel process industry for many years.


China Baowu's "one headquarters, multiple bases" integrated management and collaborative manufacturing, Ansteel Group Automation Company's industrial Internet-based steel enterprise smart energy management and control system, Beijing Shougang Automation Information Technology Co., Ltd.'s industrial Internet-based security dual control system Solutions, MCC CCID Chongqing Information Technology Co., Ltd.'s integrated intelligent management and control platform and application for iron areas based on industrial Internet, Nanjing Iron and Steel's 5G fully connected JIT+C2M smart factory, Zhongtian Iron and Steel's service-oriented manufacturing-based industrial Internet supply chain solutions, and the industrial Internet-based steel full-process quality control system of the Beijing University of Science and Technology Institute of Engineering and Technology are all phased, iconic achievements or outstanding cases in the industry.


Overall, the Industrial Internet built in the steel industry is still in its infancy. In terms of platform, it faces problems such as shortcomings in key technologies, poor data flow, and general solutions that cannot meet the needs of user-customized scenarios.


In terms of application, the application scenarios mainly focus on the optimization of the production process at the industrial site, less involved in the optimization of operational decision-making in enterprise management, and even less in the optimization of resource allocation involving collaboration between enterprises and the optimization of management services for the full life cycle of products. This requires strengthening technological breakthroughs, application innovation, strengthening industrial knowledge accumulation and analysis capabilities, improving industrial software development capabilities, improving ecological service capabilities and data governance levels, and releasing the potential of data elements, so as to foster new leaps for the next digital transformation of the steel industry. kinetic energy.
