Transforming manufacturing processes
For years, P&G has partnered with GE Digital to transform its manufacturing processes—all in an effort to meet everchanging consumer preferences. Understanding that digital tools are critical for staying competitive, P&G has implemented solutions within GE Digital's Manufacturing Execution System solution suite to improve operator and production efficiency, better leverage real-time data, and maintain its focus on safety and quality within the manufacturing process.
Accelerating digital transformation with Predix MDC
But, with the urgency to meet demands and disruptions comes the drive for continuous improvement. So, P&G once again turned to GE Digital to see how it could reduce costs, meet data compliance regulations, and improve on-site software speed.
The answer: Predix Manufacturing Data Cloud (Predix MDC).
Predix MDC, a first of its kind cloud solution, provides manufacturers with a secure, reliable way to ingest and store data in the cloud, speeding process implementation by up to 50%, and giving users rich views into information captured at individual sites as well as the ability to run analytics and comparisons across various locations and data types, including manufacturing, enterprise, and asset data. Futhermore, moving and storing manufacturing data in the cloud provides an additional level of certainty around data retention regulation, compliance, and auditing purposes.
And, when used in concert with a traditional MES, Predix MDC gives manufacturers greater flexibility of deployment and helps reduce the size of on-premises systems—in turn making them run more efficiently.
