Proficy CIMPLICITY 8.1 Released

GE Intelligent Platforms announced the availability of an upgrade to its Proficy software: CIMPLICITY Version 8.1, a visualization and control solution used in the Oil & Gas, Power, Marine and Energy industries. The new solution features programming enhancements, regulatory compliance tools and an innovative alarm association feature, in addition to full compatibility with GE’s CIMPLICITY GlobalView, allowing Web access to this powerful HMI/SCADA solution.

            “With more than 25 years in the field, CIMPLICITY customers are always pushing for lower costs of implementation,” said Gimmi Filice, Product Manager for GE’s Proficy CIMPLICITY product. “This new version delivers key new additions to CIMPLICITY’s objects and classes, enabling programmers and engineers to develop faster and maintain complex systems easier, achieving a sustainable competitive advantage and ultimately a lower cost of ownership.”

            CIMPLICITY 8.1 introduces enhancements that enable more flexible classes to speed new product development and lower the total cost of maintaining large-scale systems. “Classes are powerful components when developing,” Filice continued. “They are basically the blueprints programmers use when creating templates for CIMPLICITY, and the enhancements we are introducing further extends the ability to use templates in applications so they can be deployed more quickly. Classes also enable users to accomplish mass updates across an entire system, driving down maintenance costs.”

            Standards compliance, regulatory penalty avoidance and good manufacturing practices are supported. CIMPLICITY 8.1 introduces a new change approval feature that enables an electronic signature before allowing setpoint changes, recording results to an audit trail, with commenting capability. A change approval system, or e-signature, enables CIMPLICITY to be used in a wider variety of applications and is commonly used for helping meet 21 CFR part 11, NERC and FERC regulations. In addition, CIMPLICITY 8.1 brings a new ability to perform root cause analysis enabling instant alarm analytics for quick operator resolution.

GE Fanuc Announces Proficy CIMPLICITY GlobalView

GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms 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.

            “Companies need access to real-time information about their operations at all levels of the organization,” said Claire Cerrato, General Manager of GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms’ Automation Software group. “Companies are increasing their mobile workforces and require highly scalable, non-compromising products to keep them connected. CIMPLICITY GlobalView enables full viewing and control of plant operations and expands the native integration of CIMPLICITY with GE Fanuc’s other Proficy software, providing additional solution possibilities.”

            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 connect easily to the same system to analyze the situation and make quick, fact-based decisions.  Users also don’t have to compromise functionality or re-write 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 introduced 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 globalize their applications and support hundreds of simultaneous users with the only limitation being server hardware. The new 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.

            The product has been developed on top of CIMPLICITY, so it complies with GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms’ open and layered strategy and enables the Web user to harness the proven power of CIMPLICITY anywhere, anytime, anyplace.

            “This product is a big step forward in the accessibility of real-time data to a large amount of users,” continued Cerrato. “GlobalView validates GE Fanuc’s commitment to providing innovative and scalable solutions to solve customer needs particularly in this challenging economic climate.”
