The key technologies of petrochemical smart manufacturing have matured, the new mode of intelligent manufacturing has been explored and the intelligent manufacturing platform has become a hot spot for expansion.
It is estimated that the output value of China's petrochemical industry in 2020 will reach CNY16 trillion, with CAGR of 4.75%, which is the main driving force for stimulating the huge market for smart manufacturing.
Petrochemical & Coal chemical Smart Plant Conference 2018 will be held on Jan. 24-25 in Shandong. Share of smart manufacturing technology and success smart plant cases, will be the key issue.
In recent years, after China's economy has entered a new normal, its mode of development has gradually shifted from a scale-type extensive growth to an intensive-mass-intensive growth. The original mode of only investment driven for manufacturing industry will be unsustainable. At present, to enhance the economic benefits and market competitiveness of petrochemical enterprises, informationization and intelligent upgrading, build intelligent factories is a relatively less-investment and more efficient technological way.

——Smart manufacturing market has great potential, petrochemical industry upgrading has great demand for manufacturing
With the release of the "Made in China 2025" national strategy in 2015, the transformation and upgrading of manufacturing industry has become the main battlefield for accelerating the supply-side structural reform, and smart manufacturing has become the new engine of industrial transformation. In 2016, the market scale of China's smart manufacturing system solutions reached CNY106bn, an increase of 18.4% over last year. It is estimated that in the next 2-3 years, China's smart manufacturing system solutions market will maintain a rapid growth trend.
In 2016, the petrochemical industry has great demand for upgrading their smart manufacturing, which became industry representatives. It is estimated that the output value of China's petrochemical industry in 2020 will reach CNY16 trillion, with compound annual growth rate of 4.75%, which is the main driving force for stimulating the huge market of smart manufacturing.
——Key technologies of smart manufacturing are maturing day by day, pilot demonstration of petrochemical and coal chemical industry has achieved remarkable results
Smart manufacturing involves business management layer, production and operation layer, process control layer and other system architecture. With the rapid development of petrochemical industry information technology, a number of key technologies for smart manufacturing have matured.
Petrochemical Smart Manufacturing Key Technology
Production and operation
MES, Energy management optimization system, Raw material evaluation system, Measurement management system, Environmental monitoring system, Emergency command system
Whole process of intelligent control system、APC, RTO, PCS, SIS, Device process simulation, operator simulation training system, equipment management system, PIMS, LIMS, Three-dimensional digital platform (emergency drill and equipment management), Digital delivery technology, Key equipment data analysis and intelligent diagnosis system, Explosion-proof mobile terminal, Intelligent inspection robot, High-definition video digital monitoring system, Wearable intelligent information system, Petrochemical monitoring instruments, 4G industrial wireless network, RFID, Intelligent storage technology
Since 2015, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has implemented the intelligent manufacturing pilot demonstration special action for three consecutive years, and launched a series of smart manufacturing pilot demonstration enterprises in petrochemical and coal chemical industry, including Sinopec Jiujiang Petrochemical, Sinopec Zhenhai Refining & Chemical, ChinaCoal Shaanxi Yulin Energy & Chemical, Xinjiang Tianye , CNOOC Huizhou Petrochemical, Sinopec Maoming Petrochemical, Wanhua Chemical, and Xinjiang Zhongtai, etc. Pilot demonstration has achieved remarkable results, a number of key technologies of smart manufacturing have been popularized and applied, smart manufacturing platform to become hot spots.
However, compared with the international advanced level, China's petrochemical and coal industry intelligence level is still in the primary stage. The issues including lack of knowledge on the construction of smart factories, weak foundation for smart manufacturing, insufficient investment in R&D for smart manufacturing, the pattern of capital utilization is still under exploration, and high-end talent shortage, etc. Therefore, it is even more important to continue to strengthen pilot demonstration and promotion of smart factories, strengthen demonstration effects, accelerate the establishment of a smart manufacturing standard system and improve the personnel training mechanism.
