Mountain systems goes to GE Fanuc

GE Fanuc Automation’s recent acquisition of Mountain View Systems Inc. (MSI), a Green Bay, Wisc.-based supplier of manufacturing execution systems (MES), will provide additional advantages for GE Fanuc customers, according to executives at the company, an affiliate of GE Industrial Systems.

Mountain Systems’ Proficy for Manufacturing product is described as “MES for the Masses,” since it is built as a suite of “off-the-shelf” configurable software applications.

Kevin Roach, GE Fanuc vice president of global solutions business, notes that this product fits within GE Fanuc’s core competency of collecting manufacturing information and giving visibility into the data plus transforming the data into usable information.

Roach continues, “This acquisition adds tools to our portfolio to enhance our customers’ operational excellence. It also gives us additional domain expertise. The vision of MSI was to create a revolutionary type of MES application that would be an open solution with broad industry applicability.

It leverages data retained in historians from any vendor and uses that information for a multitude of analytic functions for both process and discrete customers.

MSI will become part of GE Fanuc’s global solutions group headed by Roach.
