Proficy Workflow — GE integrates audit trails and eSignatures into electronic work processes to further enable regulatory compliance and increase industrial environment security. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) nominee.GE integrates audit trails and eSignatures into electronic work processes to further enable regulatory compliance and increase industrial environment security. This new software features validated system support capabilities allowing companies to create a more secure and regulatory compliant environment, ultimately saving time and reducing cost. How do you know if your operators are following standard operating procedures (SOPs)?  With Proficy Workflow, you can leverage electronic work instructions and corrective action to reduce variation in performance, cost, and quality - for more consistent work processes, compliance, and brand protection. You can digitize and track work processes ranging from quality management and HACCP monitoring to emergency response and troubleshooting / rework. With Proficy Workflow, you can make every operator an expert - for a true sustainable advantage. uilt on the Proficy SOA platform, Proficy Workflow also is third-party extensible and enables composite solutions, enhancing the value of existing MES, HMI, and ERP systems. Achieve the power and results of BPM and SOA in your production operations; Digitize manual and automated processes with one tool without custom code; Record execution data to close the loop on performance and improvement; Prove that you have control of your process and ease compliance with validated system support / eSignature; Manage by exception - act quickly based on real-time events; Replicate workflows across your business using libraries and templates; and Non-programmers quickly create automated processes that impact your business every day.  Results of digitizing: Lean your processes; Improve, eliminate, and automate steps; Automate information flow from plant to enterprise and enterprise to enterprise; Integrate people and their roles / functions; Customize to individuals' work styles and decision making; and Manage and audit your production processes more effectively and consistently.
