Chongqing- “Our industrial software platforms, Blossim manufacturing execution (MES) system, and Internet of Things (IoT) system can compete with international giants like Siemens,” said Lu Yi, general manager of Chongqing Blossim Technology Co., Ltd.
The company, a startup of only 30 people, is on the track of developing industrial software in Southwest China’s Chongqing municipality.
Blossim was founded in 2009, providing digital factory solutions for manufacturing enterprises such as mechanical manufacturing, electronic information, auto parts, and rail transit. Now, it has grown as a national high-tech enterprise.
With only 30 employees, it often competes with international giants such as Siemens. Its client covers leading enterprises, such as CRRC Corporation Limited, Chongqing Chuanyi Automation Co., Ltd., and China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.
China has complete manufacturing categories and has encountered the most complex digital manufacturing problems. In such an environment, Blossim Technology has created its core competitiveness.
Through integrating industrial automation and production management information systems, Blossim’s MES and IoT systems establish the interconnection between production management and equipment operation and integrate with factory-level manufacturing operation management (MOM), ERP, PDM, and visual AI systems to improve production efficiency.
The accuracy of process implementation is 95%, the transparency of production progress reaches 100%, and the accuracy of tooling inventory driving to 99.5%.
Lu Yi, the founder of Blossim, is a veteran of factory informatization. Many years ago, Lu realized that the trend of the manufacturing industry must be data management, so industrial software has great potential.
In 2009, famous enterprises such as Honeywell, Chongqing Microsoft Technology Center, and Kingdee gathered in Chong’s Liangjiang New Area. Lu saw the prospect of software and information industry agglomeration in this area and decided to settle Blossim here.
Lu’s judgment was confirmed. Hundreds of office buildings are towering in the Liangjiang New Area, with more than 5,000 software and information technology enterprises. This area also formed an ecosystem that includes industrial design, manufacturing, control safety, and detection.
From January to September this year, Chongqing’s software and information service industry earned 201.1 billion yuan (about 28.2 billion U.S. dollars), up 12.6% year-on-year. More than 1,800 new players joined the city’s software and information service track, bringing over 30,000 employees, including 2,600 top talents.
More and more industrial players are entering Chongqing’s software market. For Lu, he sees intensifying competition and new opportunities brought about by industrial agglomeration.
Indeed, to amplify the agglomeration effect, Chongqing is quite ambitious. This July, the government released a plan for the software and information service industry.
It proposes that by 2025, Chongqing will add tens of thousands of software enterprises and 200,000 related employees. Software revenue will increase to 100 billion yuan, driving the city’s software business to 500 billion yuan at the end of 2025. Chongqing’s software industry is expecting to join the national first echelon.
