In order to implement the specific measures for the development strategy and the integration of two technologies for intelligent manufacturing in Hunan and Changsha, comprehensively enhance the development level of China's manufacturing industry, conform to the development trend of global intelligent manufacturing (industrial 4), accelerate Intelligent Manufacturing Innovation System and respond to "Made in China 2025" and "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan", and combined with the goal that Hunan and Changsha will make effort to develop advanced manufacturing industry to secure a strategic position in Central China, develop itself into a leading manufacturing R&D base in China, build an upgraded version of the industry under the new normal, promote the transformation of the industrial structure into the high-end green intelligent manufacturing industry, Changsha Municipal People's Government, Hunan Zhongzhi Intelligent Equipment Co., Ltd. and Siemens jointly initiate the construction of "Industrial 4 (Zhongnan intelligence) innovation center.
The construction of industrial 4 (Central South intelligent) innovation center follows the principle of high starting point and high location. Based in Changsha and Hunan Province, the center will develops its business across China. It is in line with the trend of global intelligent manufacturing development and under the vision of German industrial 4 and China's manufacturing 2025, the center will vigorously promote the cluster of intelligent production and speed up the construction of national intelligent manufacturing industry base, thus building the intelligent manufacturing technology into Hunan’s name card and Hunan and Changsha into the world's intellectual capital.
1）Push forward the innovation and diffusion of intelligent manufacturing technology. Intelligent manufacturing technology is the prerequisite for transformation and upgrading of manufacturing industry. The centre will function to promote the technological innovation by relying on advanced R&D institutions, verification and standardization of Intelligent Manufacturing Technology, integration of industry, universities and research, technological transformation and technology diffusion and technology exchange.
2）Intelligent manufacturing personnel training and vocational training. Professional and technical talents are the foundation for promoting intelligent manufacturing. In this regard, the center will function in training and certification of intelligent manufacturing technicians and workers, training of intelligent manufacturing, scientific research and management personnel, intelligent manufacturing training and exhibition.
3）Integrate resources to serve the transformation of manufacturing enterprises. The major mission of innovation center is to integrate necessary resources to support the transformation and upgrading of manufacturing industry, including policy research on transformation and upgrading of regional manufacturing industry, evaluation and planning of intelligent manufacturing system for enterprise, support for intelligent manufacturing demonstration projects and big data analysis and cloud services for intelligent manufacturing industry.
4）Provide innovative services for small and medium sized enterprises. Serving the small and medium sized enterprises is another mission of innovation center, including providing R&D services to small and micro businesses through building “HackerSpace”, and building intelligent manufacturing industry chain and establishing financial services ecosystem for intelligent manufacturing industry through the docking of demand and technology.
