GE Digital unveils enhancements to its Cimplicity and Tracker software. Cimplicity 11, part of GE Digital’s Proficy HMI/SCADA suite, decreases operator response time and errors, keeping critical control systems up and running. Tracker 11, part of GE Digital’s Proficy Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) offering, increases throughput, manages production routing and tracking and improves inventory and product order fulfillment.
Cimplicity 11’s new rapid application development (RAD) capabilities reduce build time with mimic-building tools, libraries and auto-discovery and creation of the SCADA model + database for OPC UA sources. With Cimplicity 11, users can employ object-oriented design for easy repeatability and faster time-to-value through modeled context as well as classes and objects for building a structured database quickly – features important in every industrial setting. Modeling capabilities in Cimplicity allow users to create templated applications for repeatable assets, which can be leveraged in both the existing clients as well as HTML5 Web clients.
Tracker 11 tracks the real-time location of jobs on the production floor and performs routing logic on the movement of jobs throughout the facility. This capability allows manufacturers to manage the manufacturing, routing and delivery of multiple product components into complex product assemblies. In addition, Tracker 11 minimizes warranty and recall exposure by tracking supplier parts and providing a genealogy for the finished product.
