It's all about achieving business outcomes that matter. GE’s digital industrial software solutions and services—powered by the Industrial Internet—bring together brilliant machines, data, insights, and people to drive real-time connectivity and data intelligence through a digital thread. By leveraging these tools and techniques, organizations can deliver greater asset reliability, lower operating costs, reduced risk, and profitable growth - essentially, the ability to optimize performance in a new way.
As Head of Manufacturing Industries for GE Digital, my focus is to define and enable GE's commercial strategy for Brilliant Manufacturing by working with companies to accelerate their own digital transformation. Powered by Predix, the Industrial Internet of Things is opening new opportunities for organizations to engage their customers, lean out supply chains and deliver greater reliability and predictability in their manufacturing operations, as well as in the operation of assets and devices in the field.
Key to these efforts is the establishment of the Brilliant Factory Lab at GE's Digital Thread Hub in Michigan. Combining Brilliant Manufacturing Solutions powered by Predix, software solutions from key partners like PTC, advanced wearables from Vuzix, with big Iron like the Mitsui Seiki Blue Arc, Okuma machine tools, Renishaw CMMs, ClearPath AGVs, and advanced technologies to make real-time decisions about your energy use from GE Current - the Brilliant Factory Lab is an incubation and acceleration space for Brilliant Solutions that can be deployed today to drive operations effectiveness. This is where the ecosystem for the Industrial Internet of Things is being built today, and where industrial companies can see where their future is headed.
