CIMPLICITY 2023 | Coming in June

Check out our new generation CIMPLICITY featuring native HTML5 with Proficy Operations Hub, MQTT, and Configuration Hub for common authentication and modeling. 


More than your traditional HMI, native HTML5 means less installation and maintenance effort, easier mobility, responsive design, added value with modern web functionality, secure by design, and rich information where and when you need it - on the device of your choice.


  • Native HTML5 Graphics Designer and lightweight scalable Runtime - for a better, faster way to develop your HMI
  • Easily combine CIMPLICITY, other OT systems plus IT systems with Proficy Operations Hub, adding information such as PDFs, videos, SQL tables, work orders, etc. for a richer operator experience
  • Configuration Hub - Define projects and leverage OPC UA discovery 
  • Common model across Proficy software to reduce configuration
  • Security and high availability enhancements 
  • Screen-building accelerators including auto-binding data 
  • MQTT5 client brings data from smart IoT sensors/devices into SCADA and subscribes to MQTT message bus data

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!


Decrease operator response time

Speed problem detection and response with ISA and GE research-based design concepts for high performance HMI

Situational awareness

CIMPLICITY changes the user experience by enabling high performance HMI visualization. The overall HMI layout provides users with the most informed, personalized view of the problem or task at hand -enabling faster response and fewer errors.

CIMPLICITY HMI/SCADA Provides Plant-Wide Visualization

Faster configuration and deployment

With CIMPLICITY, you can use classes and objects for building a structured database quickly. Modeling allows you to create templated applications for repeatable assets, which can be leveraged across clients. Employ object-oriented design for easy repeatability and faster time-to-value through modeled context.

Highly reliable

Unlike some HMI/SCADA software, CIMPLICITY is not Java based. Instead, you can reduce risk with a proven platform, deeply tested, with precise upgrades. We're using CIMPLICITY software, too, in our own plants-and it works.

Superior alarm capabilities

Leveraging OPC UA, CIMPLICITY allows OPC UA alarm clients to collect and display active alarm details for cross-application viewing and faster response. The OPC UA Server supports alarm filtering, and acknowledgments and comments. Additionally, CIMPLICITY's Alarm Cast provides advanced, real-time notification.

OPC UA connectivity and security

With OPC UA Server support for modeled data, CIMPLICITY helps you aggregate systems for a single connection to your SCADA and consolidated views. Additionally, CIMPLICITY's Global Discovery Server reduces threats from cyber attacks with overall certificate-based communication. Achilles Practices Certification further demonstrates superior secure-by-design technology.

CIMPLICITY HMI/SCADA from GE Digital offers one of the richest HMI/SCADA feature sets

Rich features, extensive drivers

CIMPLICITY offers one of the richest HMI/SCADA feature sets. As an example, our powerful Digital Graphic Replay add-on recorder lets your team analyze events that occurred in the past. Also, our GE-tested I/O drivers enable robust communication to thousands of mixed vendor devices and instruments.

Java-based HMI/SCADA: Is it worth the risk?

Java-based HMI/SCADA systems offer an OS-independent product. However, some Java-based HMI/SCADA systems do come with disadvantages. Understand the potential risks of Java-based HMI/SCADA versus solutions such as GE Digital's iFIX and CIMPLICITY HMI/SCADA.

CIMPLICITY Testimonials

The changes we were able to make as a result of using GE Digital's solution have had the greatest impact on the BnF’s total budget.

Using GE Digital’s software has enabled us to demonstrably increase productivity and significantly improve the process quality. The software facilitates the daily work of our staff.

We aim to achieve high energy efficiency and process efficiency, so that we can facilitate cost reduction in the production of water. To achieve this, we have to leverage operations support systems and programming tools, which enable real-time decision-making. The GE control system at the plant performs automatic monitoring and control of the devices from a single control center.

We used [GE Digital] products in this plant for the first time, and despite the complexity of the logics and the installations, we encountered no problems at all.

We have had excellent support from GE right from our start up. In the RAPS system, there are around 50 different HMI screens which proved easy to develop in CIMPLICITY.
