3. Better visualization, better outcomes
The benefits of HMI/SCADA solutions for auto manufacturers are well established, but the next generation of software is improving business outcomes through new technologies and standards. Fourth generation HMI/SCADA reduces the time it takes to navigate, find critical data, and get to the root causes of alarms. That’s due, in part, to simplified screens that improve visualization and help operators identify alarms, reducing the time to action. The automaker Subaru, for example, has been using iFIX, part of the Predix HMI/SCADA suite of solutions, to optimize operations and meet a goal of zero downtime.
