Operational visibility in a single environment

14 February 2013

GE Intelligent Platforms has introduced the latest addition to its Proficy software platform – Proficy Vision. This operational dashboard has been designed to bring together web-based content from other Proficy software solutions and third-party displays into one environment.

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. 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.

“Success for manufacturing and infrastructure businesses increasingly relies on broad, secure access to cross-enterprise information enabled by the Industrial Internet,” explained Don Busiek, general manager Manufacturing Software for GE Intelligent Platforms.

“Disparate systems, limited resources, and multiple roles and responsibilities often create silos of information that limit visibility and make collaboration and driving operational improvements difficult,” Busiek continued. “With Proficy Vision, users can organise content the way they want, whether that means tying content to a piece of equipment or within a specific area of the facility – putting data they need at their fingertips when they need it.”

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.

A role-based access feature allows users to see what they need, based on their login credentials. For example, an operator may only be able to see displays for specific assets, while a manager may have access to all displays for the facility. There is no need to have multiple products for operators and for executives as Proficy Vision allows support for all roles – from operators to CEOs – in one location.
