Charlottesville, VA - GE Fanuc Automation North America, Inc ., an affiliate of GE Industrial Systems, has introduced a new version of Cimplicity DataViews software, which allows remote and casual users to access critical data via a standard web browser. This thin client technology permits graphical visualization and control of single- and multiple-machine production through a standard web browser over the Internet or an intranet.

With this version, new users can access applications without installing additional software or configuring, maintaining, or upgrading the new computer, since software processing is performed on the server.

The product includes a Web server. Concurrent user licensing is maintained on the server-as soon as a user finishes accessing the system, that license is free for the next user. The Web access feature will be available on various Unix platforms and on a Microsoft Windows platform in the first quarter of 2003.

DataViews, part of the Cimplicity Collaborative Production Management (CPM) software suite, helps users build a dynamic, graphical software display for visualizing information used to control and monitor real-time processes. Programmers can create their own human machine interface (HMI) while maintaining the convenience and flexibility of their chosen programming languages and platforms. This development tool is powered by GO-Global from GraphOn Corp.

Cimplicity software from GE Fanuc provides the software foundation that, in combination with domain experience and Six Sigma methodologies, can aggregate, deliver and facilitate dynamic business decision-making within the entire manufacturing environment and can be extended to manufacturers' suppliers and customers. The CPM software suite is based on 10 years of GE Fanuc development, integration and experience, and includes: machine programming and visualization, manufacturing execution systems, supply chain optimization and collaboration, quality management, remote monitoring and diagnostics, enterprise asset management, business intelligence, and regulatory compliance documentation.

GE Fanuc Automation North America Inc., a global supplier of automation solutions, is a joint venture between GE and Fanuc Ltd. of Japan.
