Users who want to gain business insight from plant data in real time should look at Release 3.0 of GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms ' Proficy Real-Time Information Portal, the company says. As the Web client for the GE Fanuc software portfolio, the software provides a consistent set of tools for analyzing and reporting disparate process, lab and shop-floor SPC systems, along with interfaces to offline Six Sigma tools, such as Minitab. Release 3.0 enhances the software’s capabilities in three areas, according to Jack Wilkins, product manager for Proficy Production Management.

“First, it offers a tighter integration with GE Fanuc’s production management software, like Proficy Plant Applications. Secondly, the context of plant floor data is improved with new tools to represent it, like dials, gauges, and a heat map. Finally, 3.0 takes a step forward in its ability to mine third-party databases with its enhanced statement builder and improved interaction with that data through enhanced forms capabilities,” said Wilkins.

GE Fanuc says the Proficy Real-Time Information Portal is a part of its suite of tightly-integrated production management software. The portalIS Webserver, and connects to plant floor technology such as OPC, HMI / SCADA, quality systems, and third-party databases.

One Web client combines content from other GE Fanuc software applications, such as Proficy HMI/SCADA– iFIX, and data from other online data sources within the plant and the organization.
