GE Digital, San Ramon, Calif., announced a new generation of automation software.

The new GE HMI/SCADA software offers comprehensive and best-in-class monitoring and visualization capabilities, as well as work process management, analytics and mobility to enable companies to troubleshoot faster, reduce waste and increase productivity.

This fourth generation HMI/SCADA technology can allow operators to spend less time navigating, find critical data faster, improve alarm resolution success, identify relevant screens for an alarm, increase usability and achieve a faster build/deployment.

It features a context-rich HMI that changes as the user moves through the system. Designed to meet HMI guidelines, the new overall layout guides operators with the most informed view of the problem or task at hand, personalized to the user. To help engineers create the right user experience, GE also provides pre-defined smart objects and templates, such as trends, alarms, alarm summaries and key performance indicators.

The task management capabilities trigger the right actions at the right time by the right person in the right place based on alarms or other events. The new Workflow 2.5 and Mobile 2.0 solutions extend the capabilities of decision support, helping companies achieve their critical business outcomes with integrated workflows and intelligent alarming.
