GE has a long history of providing manufacturing software and practicing Lean 6Sigma techniques inside our own businesses. When we set about transforming our company into a Digital Industrial company, we took best practices from those experiences and coupled it with other newer concepts such as Manufacturing Operations Intelligence and Fastworks as enabled by the operating system for the Industrial Internet of Things. This has resulted in a new set of GE software applications to make manufacturing ‘Brilliant’.

Join this webinar to learn more about:  

  • How GE leveraged our long-standing principles along our own digital transformation.
  • How GE implemented and adopted these digitally driven changes into our internal factories.
  • New operational capabilities enabled by IIoT technologies from GE.
  • How to reduce production costs, be more effective with existing resources, and control production schedules in your own manufacturing operations by working with GE.
