Enabling field-connected operations and management for Digital Workers

As the ongoing push for digital transformation has impacted operations across power, utilities, telecoms, manufacturing and other industrials, the need for effective and flexible digital worker solutions has increased. The recent pandemic has accelerated the need for connected workers to be able to safely and effectively work outside the office or plant.  The new normal strengthens the need to decentralize operations while meeting reliability and regulatory requirements.

 

A shift toward a more mobile workforce that extends operations and management to the field leverages the inherent flexibility of digital workers to increase productivity and efficiency while helping keep costs in check. GE Digital's software solutions can empower your digital workers to meet today's demands.

Increase efficiency and productivity

Centralizing operations enables businesses with multiple locations or large sites to centralize operational views and enable remote access to information and control to support site operations – increasing efficiency and reducing downtime. 

 

Watch how a remote operator in New York can detect, investigate and address an equipment problem in Indiana in this demo. The operator observes that part production has stopped, drills down to the specific equipment with a failure, determines the issue, and resolves it – all quickly and easily!
