Plant Applications, part of GE Digital's Manufacturing Execution Systems solutions package, is a powerful operational management solution for process manufacturers, such as Food and Beverage (F&B) and Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG), that collects and analyzes data and helps manage automated fast moving processes. It automates and integrates the information-related activities for holistically managing production execution and performance optimization, balancing trade-offs between competing production activity priorities.
Track and monitor OEE and other critical key performance indicators (KPIs) —downtime, waste and production counts, mean time between failure (MTBF), mean time to repair (MTTR), and more. Link events and reasons to production parameters to identify root causes. Use standard and ad hoc reports for real-time decision making.
Quality management helps make your business goals a reality, with holistic performance management for compliance management issues. Ensure consistent quality of your products, with real-time trends, statistics and notifications to control quality levels.
Production management supports the full traceability of individual products at every step of the production process, enabling verifiable genealogy and production reporting. Monitor the product flow between equipment, create product genealogy reports and reduce excess inventory.
Increase the overall quality and consistency of products and better understand and control variation in both new and existing batch applications. Provide a comprehensive view of batch operations in the context of the overall production facility. Compare your recent games with your ideal golden game. Batch analysis works hand in hand with our Batch Execution module. The S-88 based model defined at control level is automatically made available at MES level.
