Accelerated Innovation

Innovations such as digital graphic replay (DGR) for CIMPLICITY that enables faster troubleshooting by constantly capturing your systems data to be replayed on demand, the MS Office 2007 Ribbon User Interface in iFIX v5.0 that increases productivity and makes development operations more intuitive, tighter integration of iFIX and CIMPLICITY to the Proficy software portfolio, and a completely refreshed graphic library all add to your systems flexibility, application breadth, and your productivity.

Along with all the new features, we are extending our open and layered philosophy by building on connectivity options that enable easy access to PLC data and application configuration information. In addition, new vertical industry solutions packs provide tools for Water and Power companies, making it faster to configure and recognize value from your software investment. These innovations are driving many companies to expand, upgrade and enhance their installations worldwide.

Going forward, we are continuing to develop new, exciting and unique innovations through even more vertical industry solution packs and the adoption of next generation technologies in 2009. We at GE Fanuc HMI/SCADA are committed to delivering more power, more tools, more results and are looking forward to delivering these to you, our customers!

Claire CerratoToday's lean business model and tight economy is driving you to reduce the time to value, increase operational intelligence, and generally do more with less. SCADA solutions need to support this model while delivering new and innovative features that decrease the complexity of deploying advanced HMI/SCADA functions. They need to include tools for trending, analytics, simple product configuration, reliable and powerful application failover, and easy ways to integrate complex functions into your applications fast. The HMI/SCADA team here at GE Fanuc has focused on these capabilities in 2008 with the overall automation software strategy of: "accelerated innovation."

The 2008 releases of Proficy HMI/SCADA - iFIX 5.0 and CIMPLICITY 7.5 focus on the core HMI/SCADA functionality that you, our customers require. While most of the marketplace has focused its major software development on technology beyond the plant floor and not centric to core HMI/SCADA functionality, GE Fanuc made its focus just that. iFIX and CIMPLICITY include new and unique innovations that amplify the value, increase productivity and provide you with even more reasons to choose GE Fanuc for your HMI/SCADA systems needs.
