COSMOPlat, a mass customization solutions platform from manufacturer Haier, sported several new upgrades at this year’s Hannover Messe. The 5G-empowered platform digitally integrates the entire factory process and supply chain, including interaction, R&D, and procurement, to better serve individual customers.
This year’s upgrade combines a diverse range of advanced intelligent manufacturing technologies and 5G to open up a new chapter of mass customization, pioneering the world’s first “smart + 5G” customization verification platform with profound application possibilities for industries as diverse as ceramics, agriculture, motor home manufacturing, molds, and machinery.
Serving both large enterprises and SMEs, COSMOPlat enables customers to enjoy greater efficiency and a more user-centric experience through real-time updates and optimization, according to high-profile Hannover Messe attendees who visited the booth.
COSMOPlat stood as an innovative realization of the overall exhibition theme: “Integrated Industry – Industrial Intelligence.” It was amongst 179 smart home solutions in 28 scenarios that the Haier Home Appliance brought to Hannover Messe in its journey to provide interconnected smart home experiences for customers worldwide.
As the first Chinese enterprise to be selected to the WEF’s network of “Manufacturing Lighthouses”, a community of leading manufacturers that are integrating Industry 4.0 technologies, Haier leveraged the exhibition to co-host the WEF Lighthouse Factory Forum with Bosch, Phoenix Contact, Rold, Sandvik, and Tata Steel.
Together, the companies announced the Lighthouse Program Hannover Initiative, which seeks to set and implement industry norms for standards, technology, talent, security, and more. As the leader of this cooperation, Haier’s COSMOPlat will draw on its open ecosystem to promote and cultivate the initiative.
COSMOPlat has developed 15 sub-platforms for different industries, with 12 demonstration bases across six regions, including eastern China and northern China. The model has been further implemented in 20 countries, transforming clothing, food, housing, travel, health, education, and other industries so that global users can enjoy the enhanced lifestyle experience opened up by mass customization.
