GE: Software for automation and control systems
Designed to improve production processes from common tasks to critical emergencies and minimize errors and risk, reduce waste, and ensure compliance, Proficy Workflow Version 2.1 from GE Intelligent Platforms is a software solution that also makes it easier to integrate with existing automation and control systems, speeding response to out-of-spec HMI/SCADA conditions with appropriate action.
Proficy Workflow Version 2.1 helps organizations replicate their best practices within their plant or around the world to increase quality while decreasing costs. As part of a Real-time Operational Intelligence (RtOI) solution, Proficy Workflow helps to enforce the right actions at the right time. Users can experience 40% decrease in waste, 70% increase in operator productivity and 20% boost in capacity, according to the company.
Proficy Workflow digitizes and streamlines production, with one tool, and can integrate business and production processes across systems and departments for reliable, repeatable process execution. It can drive real-time asset management, bridging operations and maintenance, and linking SCADA and CMMS, therefore improving and impacting uptime.
With Proficy Workflow’s task management capabilities, companies can capture the best practices of experienced operators and guide all workers with step-by-step instructions. Whether operating in an established facility or in a new, low-cost setting, global production teams can easily document processes, transfer knowledge and drive critical consistency, repeatability and predictability into operations. Operators do not have a new system to learn and can immediately improve response to alarms and ensure operations run smoothly.
Using a simple graphical environment and reusable templates, operators using the latest version can improve performance and scalability for large-system deployments, and can replicate production processes across their organization for increased consistency, quality, and efficiency. It offers improved capabilities for enforcing and tracking operator compliance in highly-regulated industries. Companies can verify documents and actions through enhanced electronic signatures, allowing them to move faster from critical issue detected to resolution.
Proficy Workflow also provides significantly greater ease of use for defining and managing tasks, allowing companies to digitize operational processes faster and without IT resources.
