GE Intelligent Platforms updates its Proficy Manufacturing software suite

GE Intelligent Platforms has updated its suite of Proficy Manufacturing software, the company has announced at the ARC Industry Forum in Orlando, Florida.

Designed to meet the strategic objectives of manufacturers, the Proficy software helps transform operations to meet the business potential of the ‘industrial internet’.

The new capabilities of the Proficy Manufacturing suite are currently being shipped in the company’s Proficy OEE, Plant Applications, Scheduler, Open Enterprise, Vision, Datamart and Tracker software applications.

Proficy software provides comprehensive solutions for improvement initiatives, making it easier for companies to respond to the demands of customers and increase production capacity and efficiency.

“Proficy Manufacturing applications are robust, scalable tools that help manufacturers have better visibility across the business/plant floor,” said Don Busiek, general manager Manufacturing Software for GE Intelligent Platforms. “And, all of the updates are driven by our customers as we constantly seek their input into our design process.”

Proficy software provides out-of-the-box solutions that are easy to deploy. The solutions aim to provide manufacturing stability through a harmonised supply chain and innovation within the plant. Proficy also provides a holistic plant floor user experience.

“The transformation of the manufacturing process today is driven by the explosion of data from today’s connected machines, enabled by the ‘industrial internet’,” said Busiek. “This data can help improve both the top and bottom line of a business improving customer service, shortening lead times, improving production performance and operations efficiently, all while avoiding cistly mistakes.

Information scattered across an organisation is taken by Proficy Manufacturing software solutions and converted by the ‘industrial internet’ into a common way to navigate insight.

“The challenges of manufacturers today – produce products faster, reduce work in progress, maintain tight control on quality, streamline the supply chain, reduce warranty costs – are pervasive globally,” concluded Busiek. “Our goal is to enable manufacturers to enable their operators to be more efficient, more productive and their businesses to be more profitable. Proficy addresses their business drivers – balancing production workloads, reduce rework, meet regulatory constraints, collaborate across an extended enterprise, and build right first time, among others.”
