Well, from the Chinese perspective, the only conventional war scenario that really matters is Taiwan.
However that will be decided in a few weeks if the US doesn't get involved, given China would have air superiority over all of Taiwan and the ability to track every vehicle.

But if the US does get involved, the US will have to start attacking targets on the Chinese Mainland, because all of the airbases and missiles are located there.

If the US is not successful in this, then Taiwan is still decided in China's favour.

But if the US is successful, then China faces losing control of the skies over its cities.
Nuclear escalation from China is the only logical response.

It's why 230 new nuclear missile silos in China will change everything.

So I doubt there will be the time nor requirement for a full-scale industrial mobilisation in China.
China won't lose control over airspace. Are US planes going to tank up within 100 km of China or over China? They're gonna fly one way trips? No? Then it can't do anything about inland PLAAF bases because they don't have the fuel range.

It's a worst case scenario, but it's still useful to go through this.
