GE Fanuc's Proficy Cimplicity GlobalView enables real-time plant floor access at all organizational levels
GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms, a unit of GE Enterprise Solutions, has announced the availability of Proficy Cimplicity GlobalView, a highly scalable application that delivers the power of Cimplicity to remote clients, enabling real-time monitoring, data analysis and plant floor control from within a Web browser.
GlobalView provides a full-featured HMI/SCADA client delivered over the Web so operators, engineers and managers can view, react and operate from wherever they are. This enables efficient response to situations, avoiding significant downtime, lost batches or catastrophic events. It also transforms the way teams work and collaborate because with GlobalView, multiple users can easily connect to the same system to analyze the situation and make quick fact based decisions. Users also don’t have to compromise functionality or rewrite current applications in order to get accessibility. Ease of installation makes this a quick add-on for existing and new systems.
GlobalView extends GE Fanuc’s existing footprint in HMI/SCADA to knowledge workers not on or directly tied to the plant floor. GlobalView also introduces a Proficy first technology, the Relay Server, which makes deploying HMI/SCADA on a massive scale possible. With a Relay Server deployed in the GlobalView architecture and multiple GlobalView servers underneath, customers have the ability to truly globalize their applications and support hundreds of simultaneous users with the only limitation being server hardware. The software capability opens new doors to innovative Web-only Cimplicity-based applications, providing the ability to connect to previous versions of Cimplicity without any additional development.
