GE's Proficy Software Platform Drives Production Improvements
GE Intelligent Platforms's Proficy software platform, Proficy Vision, is a powerful operational dashboard that brings together web-based content from other Proficy software solutions and third-party displays into one environment. The platform delivers a single view of operations to drive production improvement.
Proficy Vision enables users to have their web-enabled content side-by-side in the same application, allowing them to see the information they need to get their job done. The software offers a single place to display both structured data (ERP, EAM, MES, SCADA, etc.) and unstructured data (social business, spreadsheets, news feeds, etc.) for a convenient one-stop view.
Bill Fritz, Director of Waterford Township, Michigan Department of Public Works, sees that Proficy Vision capability as a benefit for his facility. With both Water and Wastewater operations, he can see if an event on one side of his house affected something on the other side without having to dump data and overlay one program on top of the other.
"It's a time saver," Fritz said. "It allows us to coordinate everything and that makes it a dispatching tool for us."
Proficy Vision can be used wherever there is Internet access, making it easy to collaborate around the plant or around the world. Users can navigate through their displays in a virtual environment and see the content at each level as they navigate. The data is structured so that all views and relevant displays are associated to the appropriate equipment.
Users can also access an integrated Proficy Workflow solution that allows them to view and interact with content, and also provides the ability within the same environment to address standard operating procedures (SOPs). Monitoring process and acting on alarms and procedures in one environment delivers a powerful advantage that drives operational improvements.
