GE Digital announces Plant Pulse Optimizer module for Brilliant Manufacturing Suite

June 15, 2016 —GE Digital announced the availability of a Brilliant Manufacturing Suite module, Plant Pulse Optimizer, providing manufacturers with the ability to run the plant on up-to-date production, inventory, quality and product delivery information rather than intuition for the purpose of continuous process improvement.  Plant Pulse Optimizer is designed to deliver broader visibility to all plant personnel and improve operational execution by coordinating isolated activities.

Lack of plant wide visibility often results in lost opportunities, and manufacturers’ need to easily integrate, access, analyze and visualize data to improve collaboration and information transparency within the plant. The Plant Pulse Optimizer provides a Panoramic view of all production activity for all factory personnel via real-time, multi-shift based KPIs (machine-material-labor-product intelligence) as scorecards.  The module provides insights focused on production analytics to organize manufacturing data into a structure to provide information on inventory, yield and achievement of production plans. The module is also device and back-end agnostic, which allows it to be connected to both GE and non-GE manufacturing operations systems.

Plant Pulse Optimizer is an out-of-the-box solution that requires minimal configuration. The “card”-based views aid in execution for various roles within the plant, with associated drill down cards to allow quick identification of bottlenecks at the operation level.

GE Healthcare, in a continuation of its Brilliant Factory initiatives, has deployed Plant Pulse Optimizer in five manufacturing sites, including three in Asia that cover all modalities including Life Care Solutions and Ultrasound. The latest site in Wuxi represents one of the largest GE Healthcare ultrasound manufacturing sites worldwide.

Plant Pulse Optimizer is available at the end of June. Brilliant Manufacturing Suite will leverage GE’s Predix platform for the Industrial Internet to further drive enterprise optimization.
