2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Manufacturing Execution System Report

GE Digital has scored in the top four across these Critical Capabilities: Process Quality Management, Data Management/Data Collection, Production Equipment Integration, and Enterprise Integration Architecture in the 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Manufacturing Execution Systems report.  

Leverage real-time operations data to optimize outcomes

Reduce costs

By aligning resources, energy, and efficiency management your operations can reduce inventory, identify costly production gaps, lower energy and utility waste, and gain insight into throughput and critical processes.

Improve quality

Capture robust quality data and related traceability information, while at the same time performing analysis on process-oriented data and product-oriented data, and classifying materials as non-conforming, out-of-spec, or related to recalls.

Speed production

Improve on-time delivery performance and respond optimally and with agility to late stage changes, gain up-to-date visibility of all work-in-progress orders, get more successful new product introductions (NPIs), and shorten design-to-delivery cycles.

Accelerate time-to-value

Achieve fast time-to-value with simple installation and easy-to-use web clients as well as nearly instant upgrades.

Decrease operator response time

Speed problem detection and response with ISA and GE research-based design concepts, so operators know the right action with a glance.

Achieve secure-by-design visualization anytime, anywhere

Enable action with visualization where you need it with native responsive web design. Reduce the threat of cyber attacks with overall certificate-based communications.

Accelerate and sustain continuous improvement

Realize continuous improvement with centralized visualization, contextual data analysis, and a modern automation and MES infrastructure. Read this white paper to learn how you can aggregate, visualize, and analyze data across plant systems to achieve process improvements.
