In the speech delivered by Wang Min, Chairman and Party Secretary of XCMG at the 2nd Digital China Summit in Fuzhou, it has been stated that “the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) holds a crucial position in the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry.” The subsidiary of XCMG Group which created XCMG Xrea, Jiangsu XCMG Information Technology Co., Ltd. has four pillars that fuels this revolutionary transformation. The first pillar is to provide intelligent and well-rounded heavy machinery solutions, aiding nationwide infrastructure projects with smart construction solutions suggested and supplied by XCMG Xrea, creating a newly discovered demand for smart equipment.
After reaching the service point from Lhasa, he found the sky becoming cloudy and warm sunlight becoming a luxury. Sometimes it is sunny in the morning, but rain falls in the afternoon. On the next morning, the fog falls with only 5-10m visibility. Because the sea level approaches 4,000m, the oxygen percentage in the air is only 60%, resulting in difficult movement. Zhang Xu, in spite of the altitude sickness, works hard to maintain and repair the Commitment Made equipment. He knows fully well the poor external environment would raise higher requirements for reliability of the “steel mantis”. To his pleasure, the product does not have other problems except the basic maintenance.
The second pillar is the creation and the implementation of a new service model for customers, building a cloud service, a one-stop smart supply chain management platform with XCMG Xrea, to infinitely improve the after-sales service. The third pillar is focusing on the operating state, efficiency, energy consumption optimization on equipment, and prolonging lifespans of components with big data. Not only the application of Xrea can benefit the production cost of customers’ construction projects, but it can also provide astute insights for each intricate project globally according to the XCMG Xrea database.
According to Zhang Qiliang, General Manager of Jiangsu XCMG Information Technology, XCMG Xrea galvanizes enterprise digital transformation on three pivotal levels, including enterprise, production line level, and equipment level. Xrea balances enterprise process frameworks with priority optimization, assisting management, research, and development, operating cost inadequacies with a one-stop platform that tackles the stages of manufacturing, supply chain management, equipment analysis, after-sale service. On production line level and equipment level, XCMG Xrea stabilizes the quality and durability of products with its plethora of data, informing the creation of each equipment to be at its prime.
XCMG Xrea Industrial Internet Platform currently has more than 680,000 connected devices, and the platform manages high-value equipment assets of more than 550 billion yuan. Now, it has covered more than 20 countries along the Belt and Road regions and stationing more than 20,000 devices. Also, XCMG Xrea is deeply rooted in 63 industries and serves 640,000 users.
