August 7, 2014 - GE Intelligent Platforms announced upgrades to Proficy HMI/SCADA - iFIX, Proficy HMI/SCADA - CIMPLICITY, and Proficy Mobile app.

Upgrades to Proficy Mobile allow managers to view and execute workflows, and facilitates a tight integration with SCADA systems for faster response on alarms. It also enables easy configuration for geo-intelligence capabilities which can be used now with Google Maps. With Proficy Mobile Tasks, operators and technicians can develop a dynamic task list with interactive, step-by-step instructions. This capability drives plant teams to the right actions so companies can enforce compliance and quality as well as reduce time and waste. Wherever they are, operators can receive information about upcoming issues and see critical steps that they might need to initiate to prevent that issue from occurring, mitigating the threat of unplanned downtime. With the solution’s Mobile Notes, managers can easily increase collaboration across teams and augment documentation with the latest changes to system parameters. Operators can enter comments, take and attach pictures, and include KPI details, and then, using filters, retrieve any of that information immediately. Version 9.0 of Proficy HMI/SCADA – CIMPLICITY brings a set of new capabilities that enable companies to develop better applications, improve operators’ experience, extend the reach of existing systems, and take advantage of the latest OS and interoperability technologies. Proficy HMI/SCADA - CIMPLICITY 9.0 reduces time to value through richer context allowing users to improve structured databases quickly and easily, enabling Real-time Operation Intelligence (RtOI) providing the right information, anytime, anywhere. New features of CIMPLICITY 9.0 include improved configuration capabilities, better interaction with new, richer protocols, and an improved operator experience with reduced alarm noise. There is also a new object library and long point names allow 256 characters for building a structured database quickly. GE Intelligent Platforms is also including Proficy Historian for SCADA in the new release. Proficy HMI/SCADA - iFIX  now supports dynamic resolution for graphics including more efficient rendering and reduced CPU footprint. This capability allows support for deploying iFIX graphics on widescreen monitors, LCD TVs and the ability to move graphics from one resolution to another. “The Industrial Internet is all about access to information,” said Matthew Wells, GE Intelligent Platforms’ General Manager for Automation Software. “Access to accurate, timely production and process data is critical and that is what these solutions deliver. We leverage the latest technologies and listen to the needs of our customers to make the Industrial Internet real for them and their businesses.” About GE GE (NYSE: GE) works on things that matter.
