Software Improves Plants Ability to Drive Performance and Enhance Enterprise Applications
GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms announced an updated version of its Proficy Plant Applications, one of the cornerstones of the company’s Production Management Software suite. Version 4.4’s upgraded features decrease a user’s time-to-value, making it easier for manufacturers to reach production, quality and cost objectives.
Plant Applications v4.4 was designed to get companies up and running faster and solve problems sooner. The Model Configuration tools extend the power of the software’s event detection and modeling sub-system. Those capabilities, coupled with improved deployment tools, make configuration of production systems faster and more repeatable. Likewise, the improved runtime displays and enhanced reporting capabilities improve the software’s ability to get the right information to the right people.
Plant Applications v4.4 continues to provide the foundation for extending the value of production systems beyond a unit, a line or an area of the plant to the enterprise applications of the business. By connecting the Proficy Enterprise Connector or the Proficy Maintenance Gateway products into the events and information within Plant Applications, users can make both plant and enterprise systems stronger together than either could be working on its own.
The architecture of Plant Applications 4.4 is non-intrusive to plant floor controls and operations and supports the broad range of production environments present in typical global companies. Its modular and scalable applications stand alone or work together to support installations of varying scope and size.
