GE Fanuc offers trial version of Proficy
Timely access to accurate production data is no longer optional, it is essential, said Jack Wilkins, Senior Manager of Production Management Software for GE Fanuc. EMI helps users understand the true production capabilities of their business and where operations are leaking capacity, performance and profits.
Proficy Historian provides a robust, high performance plant data repository proven invaluable for collecting, storing and archiving large volumes of data as the foundation for local or corporate EMI initiatives. Able to store all types of process data, Proficy Historian also allows users with multi-plant operations to establish a common, standard foundation of data across plants, business units or the entire enterprise.
Bundled with Proficy Historian for this trial program, GE Fanucs Portal provides a web-based window into key performance metrics so users can operate their business more efficiently. Its sophisticated trending and reporting capabilities take advantage of the high performance data storage ability of Proficy Historian, allowing focus on continuous improvement.
Bottom line, said Wilkins, EMI can help transform plant data into meaningful information that allows users to make informed business decisions. This new program allows manufacturers to realize the value of EMI and its tangible performance results.
The CD is available for a limited time and will expire on December 19, 2007. It can be ordered at www.gefanuc.com/emi.
