To better integrate advanced manufacturing with modern service industries, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology recently issued a guideline to establish standards for service-oriented manufacturing.

Service-oriented manufacturing is a new industrial sector that integrates manufacturing and service, and is an important direction taken for the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry.

Through the use of innovation to increase the proportion of service factors in input and output, manufacturing enterprises will extend and upgrade the industrial value chain, and increase total factor productivity and product-added value.

In recent years, China's service-oriented manufacturing has seen accelerated development, and new formats and models continue to emerge, which makes it urgent to establish a sound standard system to consolidate the basis for the development of service-oriented manufacturing.

The guideline proposes that by 2025, a standard system that can support the innovation and development of service-oriented manufacturing will be basically formed, and more than 20 standards will be revised.

It encourages industry associations, research institutions, industry alliances and manufacturing enterprises to participate in the formulation of standards, and jointly promote the application and implementation of standards.

The setup of technical standards and application standards covering key scenarios and modes in multiple industries and fields will be guided and facilitated.

Considering the development status and trends of service-oriented manufacturing, the document calls for exploring the mechanism of translating advanced and applicable sci-tech achievements into standards, gradually forming an applicable, scientific and advanced service-oriented manufacturing standard system.

The guideline encourages active participation in international standardization exchanges and cooperation in service-oriented manufacturing, thus facilitating Chinese manufacturing and services to go global.
