Building for the future was the intent when Volvo Car Engine started the development of a new MES, built on GE Digital Proficy solutions, for the new engine plant in China.
Learning from the first experiences, the solution and the way of working were developed, and the software was then deployed in the Swedish Engine plant. Shortly after, the improvements were rolled back to the China plant and deployed with zero production downtime.
Learn more about how the business targets, teamwork and involvement from the shop floor played important roles on the way to a global solution and how Volvo Car Engine looks upon the future.
Note: Volvo Car Engine worked with the GE Digital Professional Services team for a solution that includes: Proficy Plant Applications, CIMPLICITY HMI/SCADA, Proficy Historian, Proficy Workflow, and Proficy Webspace.
