Intelligent manufacturing is becoming a critical strategy in “Made in China 2025. As a result, Chinese manufacturers are encouraged to effectively adopt IoT technologies for improving their competitiveness in the global market. This paper presents a smart framework for facilitating the adoption of IoT technologies in the aluminum profile industry. Such a framework can be used for help individual manufacturers in the aluminum profile industry adequately address various critical factors for product design and production planning with respect to the unpredictable requirements of customers and the availability of much production data. In particular, mould management, warehouse management and their effective integration in aluminum manufacturing can be considered with the use of IoT Technologies. This leads to much better performance in individual manufacturing organizations in the aluminum industry.
