GE Intelligent Platforms' Proficy Open Enterprise 1.2, an out-of the box solution, connects enterprise systems and the Proficy suite of software. Built on top of Proficy service oriented architecture (SOA) and utilizing the Proficy Workflow architecture, Open Enterprise allows bi-directional messages to and from enterprise systems.

"Companies are looking for ways to integrate their plants with their enterprise systems. Proficy Open Enterprise allows real-time order information to be shared between the various systems that require this information," said Sheila Kester, general manager, Operations Management Software for GE Intelligent Platforms. "The tight integration with the production process allows users to see the status of orders, level of inventory change as well as performance of the process. The real advantage is having one version of the truth-with information available when and where it is needed."

When combined with other Proficy solutions, including Proficy Plant Applications and Proficy Workflow, Proficy Open Enterprise becomes integral to a total solution to help companies gain visibility into the production process and understand the status of an order, efficiently execute those orders, and provide Manufacturing Intelligence, analytics, genealogy and traceability information. The system can also identify and resolve issues with production orders, download schedule data into Production Systems for order execution, provide timely reporting on production results and help operators to understand what material has been consumed to assure prompt reorder.

Built on B2MML and ISA-95 standards, Proficy Open Enterprise enables integration with enterprise systems providing a quick time to value for users. A full B2MML Object model is available for customization of solution. In addition, no coding is required which will allow faster time to deployment.
