Overcome production limitations and meet increased customer demands

Battery process

Is your battery manufacturing process inefficient with limited capabilities to scale?  Are you struggling to meet the traceability requirements for all battery manufacturing? 


Without question, the battery manufacturing process is complicated.  But did you know that you can get end-to-end production data and visibility for each battery pack with a single MES solution?


Proficy Smart Factory (MES) software supports the diverse battery production process in one manufacturing platform, decreasing your OT costs and maintenance, and giving you a foundation for operations optimization.


Powered by analytics

There is no shortage of data when it comes to battery manufacturing. Are you and your team capturing, connecting and analyzing that data to optimize?


Battery manufacturing is a complicated process to be sure. At GE Digital, we get the battery manufacturing process and have been supporting manufacturers for decades.


From precision batch mixing and computational track & trace to large data analytics, we’ve been partnering with companies like yours to design and implement systems that get results.

Battery traceability

Deliver on Traceability

When a major Lithium-ion battery manufacturer faced new production operations and strict traceability reporting requirements at a greenfield, the team turned to GE Digital.


To ensure efficient operations and trace every step in the manufacturing process, the company implemented GE Digital's:


  • Proficy Plant Applications
  • Proficy Historian


The end result:


•   3x increase in throughput

•   4x increase in product quality

•   7x decrease in energy consumption costs

•   3x decrease in inventory costs
