For example, traceability of product manufacturing, combined with blockchain technology, producers can pass the raw material supplier of each product, the entire processing process flow, quality information, processing equipment number and other information through the blockchain, the entire supply Each unit on the chain can understand the actual operating status of each branch factory. However, it should be noted that the application of blockchain in the manufacturing industry is not a one-man show. It also involves data analysis and capture of equipment production data and processing parameters. It also requires the comprehensive use of big data, cloud computing, and Technologies such as the Internet of Things. This also reflects a characteristic of blockchain applications, that is, the integration and use with other digital technologies will be the mega trend and the general direction.
