This video explains how the Decision Support Software from GE is working, and why GE beliefs that a typical HMI/SCADA software should be able to do more than simply monitoring machines.
In the beginning, the video approaches the question, what an HMI/SCADA software tells you. On the one hand, the software will inform you when something is not working right in the individual attached machines. The status of the different assets is determined.
At GE it is the common belief, that software should do more than simple monitoring. The decision-making process should be supported by the software, whereby employees are motivated to be more proactive and profitable. Therefore, decisions will be centered around the prevention of failure, while the company’s equipment can be cared for proactively.
