Abstract: The producer services industry and the manufacturing industry are interconnected; subdivision industries of producer services industry have different effects on the manufacturing industry. In order to accurately determine the relationship among them, and to guide China Government to correctly make industrial planning, a variable analysis model is built based on theoretical analysis. From the viewpoint of time series, the first period state of their relation is compared with the whole period, the reasons for changes are analysed. In addition, the balance of industrial relation is forecasted. Using increased value of industry to calculate their interacting relation after data smoothness treatment based on Lotka-Volterra model and EViews software. The result shows that the relationship between manufacturing, technology services, and finance is predator-prey relation, while manufacturing and transportation and warehousing are in mutually reinforcing and symbiosis condition. After discovering their current relationship, recommendations for optimising industrial relations in order to achieve industrial cooperation and mutual development are brought forward.

Keywords: manufacturing industry; service industry; symbiosis; competition; Lotka-Volterra model; cooperation; financing; predator-prey; transportation; scientific research.
