Nowadays, the world’s industrial economy presents a trend of new technologies, new formats and new models. At the same time, consumer demands are more diversified, personalized and refined. Under the new environment, a large number of small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises lack of scientific research, design ability and resources which are facing survival difficulties. With the development of manufacturing industry, industrial design, as an independent department, is separated from the manufacturing system to provide productive services for industrial manufacturing. However, due to the limitation of regions, contacts, cost and other factors, the ability of independent industrial design enterprises and teams is very limited to expand their business. There is a large degree of information asymmetry between the supply and demand sides. Under the offline service mode of traditional economy, the service scale, efficiency and quality of advanced industrial design team are greatly limited, and it is difficult to produce exponential increment development, which greatly restricts the development potential of industrial economy and the speed of transformation and upgrading.
Collaborative R & D platform can be built as a big data intelligent digital center linking global design suppliers and demanders, solve design problems across regions all around the world, and help enterprises upgrade their industries.
