This week we’ll be in Austin at the 2019 GE Digital User Conference. We’re looking forward to showcasing our comprehensive industrial software portfolio and the customers transforming their businesses right now. But there is something much more important that happens, we get to meet you. The best technology in the world means nothing if it doesn’t have built-in expertise and flexible delivery models to adapt to our customer’s diverse needs.
At GE Digital, we recognize that your operation doesn’t need more complexity. In fact, our job is to take the complexity out of transforming your organization by fusing hundreds of years of industrial expertise with powerful, cutting-edge analytical engines that fully utilize the power of machine learning. And we have to do it in a way that fits your needs. We look at this as a great opportunity to sit alongside hundreds of you—and imagine our future of innovating together.
We hope attendees will take the time to explore everything we have to offer at the conference. We’ll have product demo stations up and running throughout both days of the conference—putting you in touch with our product experts who can answer all your questions while you’re on site. In addition, our agenda has deep dive product sessions we encourage you to sit in on.
Predix Essentials is both a standalone solution for IIoT monitoring and event management as well as the platform foundation of our Asset Performance Management (APM) and Operations Performance Management (OPM) solutions. Together with Predix Edge, it provides edge to cloud OT/IT connectivity and a feature-rich User Console that delivers immediate results without software development. This session will offer a brief product overview and introduce powerful new features available soon to Predix Essentials, APM, and OPM customers.
Consumer Internet leaders like Amazon and Netflix build a digital twin—a digital model representing deep profile characteristics—of every target consumer. And every time a consumer reads a product review, views a complementary product offer, or watches a movie, that buyer’s digital twin gains additional resolution. Thus, the digital twin of each target buyer is continuously improved over its lifetime. This symbiotic relationship helps companies be more relevant (and sell more), and helps the consumer find exactly what they’re looking for faster.
However, in the industrial world, many reflexively think of the “digital twin” as only a 3D visual representation of a physical object, used as a key step in product design and manufacturing. While this type of digital twin is surely valuable, GE has leveraged a different type of digital twin technology for decades, somewhat like the customer models described above. These models help GE and our industrial customers predict and prevent unplanned downtime and, more recently, to optimize production processes. Every day, digital twin models help customers increase plant reliability, throughput, and quality in a way never possible before.
Learn about GE’s approach to digital twins, outcomes delivered, and how your organization can benefit. This session will cover a range of maturity models for the concept of digital twin, customer use cases, GE’s catalogue of industrial digital twins, and approaches for how to get started with this type of technology.
Learn how our OPM solution enables manufacturers to reduce waste, predict product quality, and optimize your operations. Operating at the edge and cloud, OPM manages continuous and hybrid process variability, predicts product quality and enables process optimization reducing waste, improving quality, and increasing yields. In this session attendees will see demonstrations of optimization through real world OPM use cases.
While we are excited to show you the advances we’ve made across manufacturing operations, and asset and operations performance, we are most looking forward to using these advanced offerings to build a brighter future for your organization together.
Together, we can do remarkable things.
Let us show you how to accelerate your digital transformation
