GE Takes the Digital Pulse of the Plant
Most plants are taking the step toward digitizing their production data. The burden of running around the plant with a clipboard is finally disappearing. Now there’s one more step to take: gather all of the disparate digitized data from plant operations onto one screen. GE has created a single snapshot of plant operations with its Plant Pulse Optimizer (PPO), which is part of the company’s Brilliant Manufacturing Suite module. PPO provides plant operators with the ability to view up-to-date production, inventory, quality, and product delivery data gathered on a single screen.
“The pulse optimizer consolidates the various data points into a single visual element for a concise view of plant operations,” Deepti Patil, senior product manager at GE Digital, told Design News. “If you have data that is in disparate sources you can use the optimizer to bring it together on one screen.”
