According to data from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, by the end of 2018, the number of small and medium-sized enterprises in China has exceeded 30 million, and the number of individual industrial and commercial households has exceeded 70 million, contributing more than 50 percent of the country’s tax revenue, more than 60 percent of GDP, more than 70 percent of technological innovation, more than 80 percent of the labor force employment and more than 90 percent of the number of enterprises.

However, in recent years, the trend of the digitization of Chinese enterprises is inevitable. In addition to the bottleneck in the later stage of the development of the traditional manufacturing industry, SMEs face another challenge. Due to various reasons, the digitization rate of management and production of SMEs is still very low, which is far from keeping up with the development speed of China’s digitization.

I. Problems faced by the digitalization of production management of small and medium-sized enterprises

1. Lack of digital talents

According to statistics, all enterprises have realized the significance of digital transformation, and 89% of SMEs have made plans for the development of digital transformation. In terms of digital transformation talents, the average proportion of digital-related talents in enterprises is only 20%, and 15% of enterprises have established a digital talent training system. It can be seen that the digital production management talents of small and medium-sized enterprises are far from matching the demand, which leads to the backward digitization progress.

2. High transformation cost

The production and manufacturing management system that has been used for a long time on the market has relatively high costs in both implementation and operation and maintenance, so it is generally difficult for small and medium-sized enterprises to bear. According to statistics, most small and medium-sized enterprises find it difficult to obtain bank loans, with only 12 percent of them receiving bank loans. The digital transformation of enterprise production and manufacturing is a systematic project. On the basis of the difficulty of using capital leverage and special support, small and medium-sized enterprises can hardly continue to rely on their own capital investment.

3. Decline in willingness to invest

Affected by the epidemic, market expectations are unstable, demand is weak, orders are down, production is down, and SMEs are less confident and less willing to invest.

4. Weak foundation for transformation

According to relevant data, the basic level of digital transformation of small and medium-sized enterprises in China is generally not high. Only 40% of SMEs can carry out data collection based on QR code, bar code, RFID and other identification technologies; 23% have achieved integration between key business systems; and only 5% have adopted big data analysis technology to provide optimization suggestions and decision support for manufacturing links.

At the current stage, the industry competition has entered the white-hot stage, focusing on the digital transformation of enterprise production and manufacturing link is the key to improve the overall digital level of enterprises, and is also a magic weapon for enterprises to become digital and intelligent. In recent years, the low code production and manufacturing management platform appears on the market, with the characteristics of low cost and high efficiency, existing, aggregation of multiple systems, can meet the needs of enterprise production and manufacturing management, quickly “popular” among small and medium-sized enterprises, and attract the investment and join of the head manufacturers.

Faced with these problems, can the “low code”, which is held in the hands of capital, offer some suggestions for manufacturing enterprises?

Personally think can!

Why do I say that? Take a look at the advantages of low code, and you’ll see!

Second, the advantages of low code platform!

1. Everyone can get started and the return rate is high

Low code development platform, users can quickly build all kinds of management systems that can run on PC and mobile terminals by dragging and pulling configuration operation, everyone can start, everyone can operate, can save more than 80% of enterprise development workload, save time and cost of system development! While focusing on business, I developed an application in line with business scenarios and put it into use quickly.

2. Adapt to various needs and meet various requirements

Every enterprise management mode and business process have distinguishing feature each, while low code platform can aggregate ERP, MES, OA, HR, etc of enterprise management systems, or through the API interface docking enterprise the existing ERP and BOM, the finance system, HR system, can satisfy the small and medium-sized enterprises of distinctive including manufacturing all kinds of enterprise management needs.

3, simple maintenance, strong personalization

Low code platform can be used at will, or can be dismantled at will. Enterprises can independently add and delete the process links according to their own needs, without the intervention and modification of programmers. Moreover, the enterprise management system is built by employees who know the core business of the enterprise, which can better target the business management characteristics of the enterprise, more personalized, and better enhance the fit degree between the enterprise and the digital management system.

It can be seen from the above data that China’s small and medium-sized enterprises have a high willingness to realize digital transformation, but they are still hesitating due to cost, long cycle and other problems. And cost reduction and efficiency increase, along with the use of low code platform, can reduce the enterprise digital transformation worries at home, help small and medium-sized enterprises to achieve industrial upgrading.
