Software Solution Enables Work Process Management
GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms, a unit of GE Enterprise Solutions, recently announced the newest version of its breakthrough work process management solution Proficy® Workflow, version 1.2. The new software allows operations experts to create and modify work processes much more quickly and easily without requiring support or resources from IT. With the power of work process management, companies can digitize and streamline production – from Electronic Work Instructions for Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and corrective action to HACCP monitoring and compliance tracking.
“The new features in Proficy Workflow Version 1.2 are one more step in empowering production teams with the ability to directly create, modify and track work processes,” said Greg Millinger, Product General Manager for GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms. “Because production experts can manage work processes as needed, response times to operational issues are much faster. Production work processes become more agile and consistent – without consuming IT resources.”A major new Form Designer in Proficy Workflow Version 1.2 eliminates coding for display screens and forms. Now, production teams simply drag and drop in an easy-to-use graphical WYSIWYG environment to build forms and displays for manual data entry and automated entry, from barcode readers and other devices. Furthermore, the new displays are not just viewable and actionable through Proficy Workflow; they can also be an actionable part of other applications on the Proficy SOA platform. GE Fanuc and third-party software can connect to the Proficy SOA platform through service providers. Users, including operators, can easily share data and displays across applications without having to switch from one application to another.
