GE Fanuc Automation Americas Inc. reports that its Proficy real-time information portal, version 2.1, is a new version of its plant-wide analysis, visualization, and reporting software, which allows users to gain business insight from their plant data in real time. Proficy 2.1 reportedly supports better, faster decision-making with a common client that scans applicable data sources. This can help production, IT, and business users analyze trends and statistical deviations, and drive quality and continuous improvement. This portal is part of GE Fanuc's flagship software, Proficy Intelligent Production Solutions, and communicates with GE Fanuc's systems and third-party applications to use a company's installed base of equipment, and achieve faster ROI. Proficy 2.1 is offered in Enterprise edition and Historian edition.

Using sophisticated trending and reporting capabilities that take advantage of historian archive technology, Proficy 2.1 calculates, analyzes, and presents an overall view of key performance indicators (KPIs) and other metrics necessary to run processes more efficiently. Proficy 2.1 also offers a new "historian client" that connects to GE Fanuc's Proficy Historian and third-party technologies. A new Web portal provides one user interface for all plant-floor visualization and analyses.

In addition, Proficy 2.1 offers "dynamic graphics" that facilitate an HMI-like view of plant floor operations with real-time and historical animations of data, and it features a comprehensive shape library for easy screen development. Web-based "integrated quality" capability unites disparate data sets into a common environment for consistent statistical process control (SPC) analysis to boost quality and continuous improvement. New "natural printing" expands formatting, saving, and report printing capabilities. www.gefanuc.com
