Optimizing plant operations

Asset Performance Management (APM) is a suite of software and services designed to help optimize equipment reliability and O&M efficiency across the plant and the entire fleet. Featuring Digital Twin analytics, work process automation and built-in GE expertise, APM is the backbone of modern power generation operations.


APM’s rich functional pillars for Health, Reliability and Asset & Maintenance Optimization are available both as a cloud-based service on the Predix Platform as well as on-premises software.

Strategies to Reduce Power Generation O&M Costs

Discover ways to reduce costs while assuring plant reliability. This is a GE Digital on-demand webinar.

Enable continuous improvement


Reduce unplanned downtime and increase availability and reliability by helping to ensure critical assets and systems are monitored and protected from emerging threats.

Improve productivity

Improve workforce productivity by prioritizing maintenance based on criticality and cost (condition-based), rather than schedule-based maintenance practices.

Manage risk

Protect the health and safety of employees, the environment, and business objectives, by reducing asset-related incidents and unplanned downtime.

Predictive maintenance

Reduce costly emergency repairs by detecting problems early, turning unplanned downtime into planned/scheduled downtime.

Lower total cost of ownership (TCO)

Reduce TCO delivered via a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, providing flexibility and access to business insights where it matters—with edge, cloud, and hybrid configurations.

Faster time-to-value

A standardized way to connect machines, data, and people with a consistent interface for superior user experience, dynamic scalability, and extendibility to grow functionality as business needs evolve.
