Saic-gm-wuling has become the first national pilot unit for innovative application of blockchain in the automotive industry
On January 30, 16 departments including the CYBERSPACE Administration of the CPC Central Committee jointly announced the national pilot list of innovative application of blockchain, and SAIC-GM-Wuling was selected as the only enterprise in the automotive industry.The inclusion fully recognizes the beneficial exploration of enterprises in the innovative application of blockchain.(Sixteen departments including the CYBERSPACE Administration of the CPC Central Committee jointly announced the national pilot list of innovative application of blockchain.) In 2021, the annual sales of SAIC-GMC Wuling exceeded 1.76 million units, ranking first among national brand single auto enterprises.Behind the sales performance is the joint efforts of nearly 900 suppliers and logistics providers, realizing the daily trading volume of hundreds of millions of yuan and more than 6 million parts and components.The huge supply chain transaction generates transaction documents at an average rate of 4 documents per second. The massive documents and data pose a huge challenge to the traditional document management methods mainly based on manual work.In addition to the complex files management difficulty, in the supply chain upstream and downstream businesses, data exchange are also very common, not the material transfer process had to rely on paper file transfer and subsequent accounting work, at the same time of rework waste of labor, also produced a large number of disputes due to signature can’t identify.In order to improve the management efficiency and quality of the industrial chain, a group of Wuling staff represented by logistics Innovation Studio began to explore the possibility of arming the industrial chain with new technologies since 2018.In February 2021, the Lingxi Zhixiang Cloud project, fully independently developed by SAIC-GM-Wuling, was officially launched. Based on open source components, this project showed great advantages in overcoming cost, technology and other bottlenecks.The application of blockchain technology has been highly praised by supply chain partners. LAN Xuqiu, warehouse director of Liuzhou Shuanglin Company, a supplier of SAIC-GM-Wuling, said, “After the implementation of relevant technology in January, we can save two hours every day just checking accounts with the main engine factory, which is very efficient.”Benefiting from the application of blockchain technology, “on-chain signature” and “on-chain storage” and other information means have been implemented, and material information input can also be realized through scanning.”The accuracy and speed of information entry has greatly improved.”Liu Haiying, logistics manager of Ruize, also spoke highly of the practical application of blockchain technology.(Linglingxiang APP operation interface, material information is clearly visible) The promotion and application of block chain technology will save 16 million yuan of cost and 10 million paper consumption for SAIC-GM-Wuling every year, and improve supply chain management efficiency up to 80% while further realizing low-carbon environmental protection goals.It provides beneficial experience and case for the deep integration development of informatization and industrialization.Future, represented by ling rhinoceros wisdom at cloud of wuling block chain technology application will expand to the vehicle, accessories and settlement services, and supply chain finance, the electronic contract management areas, armed with advanced technology further wuling, practiced by the practical action as a pilot unit block chain characteristic application responsibility, contributing to China’s industrial digital revolution wuling power.
