Chicago, Ill. - GE Fanuc Automation , Charlottesville, Va., an affiliate of GE Industrial Systems, introduced Cimplicity Collaborative Production Management (CPM) software suite, which provides an integrated platform that drives manufacturing productivity through digitization. The product 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.

'Collaborative Production Management is the source of the next great productivity realization,' said Kevin Roach, vp. 'With CPM, we can now maximize the return on investment of MRP/ERP systems, which were installed with promises that never fully materialized because of the way they were disconnected from the realities of the plant floor. Cimplicity CPM allows information to be shared freely between business and plant floor applications.'

The software suite provides the capabilities of manufacturing execution systems, supply chain execution, quality management, remote monitoring and diagnostics, enterprise asset management, business intelligence (a real-time portal to manufacturing information), finite scheduling, and regulatory compliance documentation.
