Mold industry situation in our country
With China's accession to the WTO, the development of global economic integration will inevitably have a tremendous impact on China's traditional industrial system. We must reform the traditional operation mode to adapt to the market. To participate in international competition, we must integrate the forms and means of information exchange with international standards, & nbsp. As we all know, e-commerce represents the direction of future trade development, and is also an inevitable trend of economic development and progress. In the period of deepening market competition, the innovation ability of enterprises has increasingly become an important part of the competitiveness of enterprises, and information resources have increasingly become strategic resources of enterprises.
Most of China's die and mould enterprises are small and medium-sized enterprises. They have grown up from workshop-type enterprises. Even now, many die and mould enterprises are workshop-type management. Problems arise in the control of die delivery time, cost and quality. Facing the fierce market competition and backward management means and level, the managers and technicians in die and mould enterprises are only tired of running.
Therefore, it is very difficult for die and mould manufacturing enterprises to improve their management level and have the ability of quick response and timely adjustment without an advanced management system to realize the informationization of management. The so-called informationized mould enterprise is to apply the information technology such as INTERNET and ERP to fix the upstream and downstream business process, technical communication process and internal business management process of the mould enterprise in the form of IT, and ultimately improve the economy of the mould enterprise. Business management level, improve the efficiency of the operation of die and mould enterprises.
In the 1980s, the means of manufacturing dies mainly depended on ordinary mechanical processing equipment, while for the complex shapes of dies, they depended on the skills of fitters. Excellent die fitters played a decisive role in the die enterprises. The focus of competition was who could produce the dies. By the 1990s, CAD/CAM technology, CNC processing technology and EDM processing technology were gradually widely used. It was no longer a problem to manufacture dies. The application level of CAD/CAM technology and CNC technology was the main content of measuring dies and the first change of die development. The management mode of die and mould enterprises has also changed, and management is becoming more and more important. In the 21st century, the rapid development of IT technology, such as network technology and computer application, as well as the significant reduction of the cost of computer technology application, the improvement of network speed and the rapid popularization of network application, all these indicate that the information age is coming soon. Who can grasp the initiative and seize the opportunity to apply IT technology to die and mould enterprises as soon as possible? Industry, who can open up the market, improve the core competitiveness of enterprises have advantages.
At present, the popularization of CAD/CAM technology has stepped from the stage of "throwing off the drawing board" to the stage of deepening application. The application of CAPP technology can greatly improve the efficiency and accuracy of enterprise process planning; the application of PDM system can effectively manage product development data; and the application of MIS/ERP system can fundamentally reduce enterprise costs and improve production and management efficiency. It has become the theme of deepening the application of CAD/CAM technology to realize information integration and functional coordination among these systems, and gradually realize the overall informatization of enterprises, & nbsp, which is the second change of die development.
Generally speaking, the establishment of network enterprises is based on INTERNET technology and computer management technology, and integrates EPR, CRM, SCM, PM and other technologies, as well as some industry standardization standards. Through INTERNET technology, die and mould enterprises can establish contacts with customers at home and abroad, open up a broader market, communicate business and technology between enterprises and customers at home and abroad, and establish interfaces between enterprises and customers. ERP technology helps enterprises standardize and manage internal business processes, improve the management level of die and mould enterprises, and greatly optimize and shorten the internal processes of enterprises, improve competitiveness. Combining the technology of INTERNET with the technology of ERP can also realize remote office, improve the quick response ability of enterprises, and manage enterprises more effectively. CRM technology can help die and mould enterprises to strengthen the management of customer relations, and make rapid response to customer needs and processing. SCM technology helps die and mould enterprises to strengthen supplier management, further reduce procurement costs and open up more supply channels, and so on.
Mould is a typical one-piece production industry. Every order has to communicate with customers in detail in business and technology. Otherwise, it will have serious consequences. Following is an example of insufficient information communication between die and mould enterprises and customers: a large-scale die and mould factory undertook a new Japanese customer's die and mould order. After this Japanese customer customary order was issued, detailed technical communication was carried out with the designers of the die and mould factory, and detailed design requirements were put forward for the die and mould factory according to this requirement. Line design is OK, no need to confirm the design drawings. After the design is completed, the designers of the mould factory still follow the custom of receiving orders from American customers, waiting for customers to confirm the design before ordering the mould shelf and materials. They have waited 10 days until they know that customers do not need to confirm the drawings. As a result, the set of moulds was delayed for 10 days, and the customers were very dissatisfied. Since then, they no longer placed orders, thus losing a very potential customer.
It can be seen that even a slight omission in information communication with customers and enterprises will cause huge losses to enterprises. Information management system will help die and mould enterprises to better communicate with customers. Communicate with customers
