ShanghaiTex 2017 connects with the World of E-commerce
The Manufacturing Experience from Future
C2M is a new business model, with one end connected to customer and the other to the manufacturer. All those links in between like inventory, logistics, sales and distribution, etc., could be omitted to save the unnecessary cost, so that customers can buy high-quality goods with rather lower price.
C2M model, derived from the concept of industrial 4.0, refers to the automation, intellectualization, networking, customization and energy saving of the modern industry. It aims to connect different production processes through internet and utilize computer system for immediate data exchange. Hence the production order will be placed in accordance with customer's requirements, and the product is customized duly. C2M is thus also called the fourth technology revolution after steam engine, electrification, and automation.
C2M achieves seamless connection of customer and manufactory, and removes most of the costly intermediate processes. As a result, C2M allows the manufacturers to produce personalized products with keen price. The C2M model also subverts the traditional retail thinking that manufacturing is driven by customer demands through the e-commerce platform. This on-demand production successfully eliminates factory inventory costs, thus further decreases customer purchasing cost.
