Visible Data Means Operations Excellence
Seeing is believing, and bringing operational information into the light makes it usable by everyone in an enterprise—allowing them all to make faster, more productive decisions.
This enhanced awareness was especially useful at GE Lighting, which recently reinvented itself to transition from manufacturing millions of homogenous, incandescent light bulbs to developing tailored, LED lighting solutions for its many customers.
Similarly, Coca-Cola gained new insights to help further optimize production, while also taking advantage of cloud-based data gathering, analysis and protection. These experiences were described by Craig Platt, IT director at GE Lighting, and Ioan Batran, automation engineering director at Coca-Cola Refreshments (CCR), in their presentation, "Operational Excellence: Improve Data Visibility Across the Enterprise" at the GE Intelligent Platforms 2014 User Summit in Orlando, Florida.
