Manufacturing software replaces paper-based process with MES digitization

January 17, 2013

GE Intelligent Platforms has introduced advanced manufacturing software to help increase production speed and more tightly control quality. Proficy for Manufacturing software addresses challenges faced by companies across a variety of manufacturing businesses.

For long-cycle, engineer- or build-to-order (ETO or BTO), complex manufacturing operations, the software eliminates paper-based processes through MES digitization to provide the information manufacturing businesses need to manage operations and work toward optimizing supply chains.

Digitizing helps complex manufacturers produce products more quickly, enabling single-piece flow manufacturing while improving throughput, reducing lead-times, and balancing work loads, according to the company. It also helps reduce WIP to enable JIT material delivery and allows tighter control on quality to help standardize proven processes, eliminate waste, and reduce rework.
