GE Fanuc Automation has won two technology innovation awards for its automation software from the industry trade publication Control Engineering.
GE Fanuc received Control Engineering Editors' Choice Awards for CIMPLICITY Machine Edition software and GE Fanuc Intellution infoAgent software.
Editors selected GE Fanuc based on the company's technological advancement, service to the industry, and industry impact. According to Mark Hoske, editor-in-chief of Control Engineering, GE's automation software is amongst the "most significant innovations" of 2002.
CIMPLICITY Machine Edition software provides HMI, motion, and multi-target control capabilities in a unified environment that saves users time and reduces training requirements.
Developed as part of GE Fanuc's digitisation initiative, the package provides the automation software components users need for machine-level applications that take advantage of global data sharing capabilities over the web.
GE Fanuc’s infoAgent is a web-based tool for accessing, analysing and reporting key performance indicators (KPIs) in a clear, concise, jargon-free format that is relevant for each user throughout the organisation.
By viewing relevant graphical data in near real time, enterprise users - from an operator to maintenance manager to manufacturing vice president to CEO - are empowered to make rapid, proactive, and informed decisions, driving plant optimisation.
Because infoAgent is browser-based, this information can be made accessible across the building or across the world.
