True Client/Server Architecture

Connecting at Every Level

CIMPLICITY software provides a faster and easier way to implement, maintain and
grow your automation system with a true client/server architecture. Comprised of
two main components, high performance servers and flexible viewers, this efficient
architecture is scaleable from a single-node HMI to a multi-node, networked system.
You can start small, then easily add servers and viewers without having to replicate
your point database from node to node. This significantly reduces the time and effort
required to implement and maintain a system.

From the plant floor to the enterprise level, CIMPLICITY softwares open
architecture enables it to mesh seamlessly with other systems. This eliminates the
need for custom, inflexible solutions for your applications and provides faster and
easier access to information from anywhere within your process.

Easy To Use
CIMPLICITY HMI comes
with a Workbench and a set
of Power Tools that provide
the easiest platform
available to develop and
maintain your applications.

CIMPLICITY HMI is the most powerful, easy-to-use supervisory monitoring and


control software on the planet. It consolidates the collection of data from your
facilitys sensors and devices, then transforms the data into dynamic text, alarm and
graphic displays. It gives users access to real-time information, helping them make
appropriate decisions to improve quality, productivity and, ultimately, profitability.

35,000 and unlimited I/O count servers. I/O count is based on actual device points
collected by the node. Virtual points (points which reside in the computers memory)
are not counted. For added flexibility, any CIMPLICITY HMI system can access
points from another system. Points accessed from other systems do not count
towards the total I/O count. Viewers do not directly collect I/O and there is no
limit to the number of points they can display.

Technically Advanced
One of the most technologically advanced, open-systems-designed HMI products
today, CIMPLICITY HMI brings GE Fanucs extensive experience with true
client/server, multi-tasking, multi-user operating systems into the Microsoft
Windows NT world. Its designed using the standards and 32-bit code of Microsoft
Win32. And with the incorporation of Microsoft standards into the product design,
CIMPLICITY HMI can handle your most demanding applications.

Development and Runtime Systems Development systems allow you to design,


create and run new projects. Runtime systems allow you to run projects created
by development systems.

What Type of System Do I Need?


CIMPLICITY Development Servers If you are a first-time customer, youll need to start
with a CIMPLICITY Development Server to develop or modify your project and

Open Systems
CIMPLICITY HMI also connects to your enterprise-level systems. It lets you
distribute production requirements to the shop floor and feedback production
results. This two-way information flow helps you construct an integrated plant floor
information system. With MES applications and remote, web and wireless products,
CIMPLICITY HMI seamlessly extends the reach of your monitoring and control
system to a large number of users.

application. For a single-node application, a Development Server is all you need;


this server can even run your project.
CIMPLICITY Runtime Servers If you have several areas or applications, you can create
or modify them on a Development Server, then deploy them on Runtime Servers.
Runtime Servers let you run copies of projects that were created on a Development
Server and are ideal for OEMs and users with multi-node systems.

With CIMPLICITY HMI we integrated our entire monitoring


system into a single non-proprietary solution. That means
faster development and reduced project costs for us and
more speed, flexibility and ease-of-use for our customers.
Scott Fawcett
Software Section Manager
FSI International, Inc.

CIMPLICITY Viewers If you want to add users to your system, you need CIMPLICITY
Viewers. You must have a CIMPLICITY Server before you consider the purchase of
Viewers. Viewers receive data from CIMPLICITY Servers.
CIMPLICITY Development Viewers If you want to modify an existing project without
physically going to the Development Server, choose CIMPLICITY Development
Viewers. You cannot create a project with just a Development Viewer. You must
have a Development Server to create your initial project and application.

Object-Oriented Graphics

Drag-and-Drop

Patterned after the Microsoft Windows


Explorer, the Workbench gives you a
new perspective on your configuration,
with more power and flexibility than
ever before. The Workbench window is
divided into two columns. On the left is
a folder/file tree that contains the Power
Tools. By clicking on a folder or Power
Tool on the left, you can view the
corresponding configuration items
on the right.
The hierarchy of objects and folders
on the left is designed to help you
organize your Power Tools into groups.
For example, the Devices and Ports
associated with Device Communications
are logically grouped into a single folder.
Once these are configured, you may
never need those tools again. You can
close that sub-tree and put them away.

With the Workbenchs drag-and-drop


capabilities, developing, testing and
maintaining your projects have never
been easier. You can simply drag points
of interest from your list of configured
points, then drop them into your
screens or the CIMPLICITY Point
Control Panel. Or, you can create
a Quick Trend (see page 25).

Frame Animation is a compound object that allows you to define a series of frames.
Each frame can consist of different objects and is displayed based on the value of
an expression. As a result, areas of the screen can change like a slide show.

Metafile Import lets you copy and paste Windows Metafile objects produced by
programs like AutoCAD and PowerPoint into CimEdit. The imported images
can be decomposed into CIMPLICITY objects. They can also be fully animated,
unlike bitmap imports, which remain single, static objects.

Symbols and SmartObjects Library


With an extensive library of symbols and our powerful SmartObjects feature,
creating and maintaining your system is easier than ever. With SmartObjects, you
create your own custom objects and easily drag-and-drop them into your screens
from the CIMPLICITY Object Explorer. Once the objects are dropped, youre
automatically prompted to enter the required configuration information. You can
even construct objects that automatically create a complete point configuration.

Linked Objects

Saves time and money


with Linked Objects
and Scripts

When you need to use the same


object on multiple screens, you can
save time and money using linked
objects. You can create a Master
object and then drop and link it
into the screens you create.
Changes to the master object will
be replicated to all linked objects.
If you ever need to change that
object or its animation, you simply
modify the master and those
changes will automatically be
reflected throughout your system.

Unique Object Model


saves time when creating
new systems

Online Help offers comprehensive, indexed documentation, anytime.

Object Library

Linked Scripts
Object Help can be configured for any object on the screen and easily accessed
at runtime by users.

Dynamic Screen Testing enables you to test screen editing changes in CimEdit
without changing your original screen. By using the test button on the standard
menu bar, you can automatically start a CimView window to view your edits
without committing to them.

Scripts can be linked to objects. If you associate a script to a master object, it is


replicated in all the linked objects. If you ever need to change the script, editing
the master object will change all the linked objects as well.

Object Model
Using OLE automation, the Object Model offers an extensive external programming interface for CimEdit and CimView. You can automatically create and modify any screen using CimEdit features and enjoy complete control of CimView
from either a script embedded in CimView or from any Visual Basic application.
The Object Model greatly reduces the time required to create new systems based
on design and requisition data. If many similar screens are needed, a Visual Basic
program can be written to automatically generate them.

CimView (Process Monitoring)

Alarm Viewer
The Alarm Viewer is an ActiveX object that can be embedded in your CimView
screens to create a single, seamless interface for your process. You can view alarms
from just your node or get a global picture by viewing alarms generated by other
CIMPLICITY Servers.
Alarm Viewer supports both dynamic and static modes. Dynamic mode lets
you see new alarms as they occur. Static mode lets you control the scrolling of
alarms, so you can concentrate on the current situation without the screen
constantly changing. Meanwhile, CIMPLICITY HMI software continues to monitor
and record all new alarm events. With a click of the mouse, your static alarm view
can be updated to show current alarms.

Database Logger
Easy access to the information you need
for reports and applications
Database Logger
Runs on CIMPLICITY
Servers
Viewers can access
logged data from a Server.

With its open system design, CIMPLICITY Database Logger uses the standard
ODBC interface to log data, such as alarms, events and point values, to Microsoft
Access Database Files, Microsoft SQL Server database* or an Oracle* database.
You can later retrieve this stored information for reports and a variety of
ODBC-compliant applications.
Configuring database logging is easy. Simply select the items you want to log and
the conditions under which you want them logged. The CIMPLICITY Database
Logger does the rest. You can:
Precisely control which data is logged
to your database
Select any combination of the point
value, alarm state or change in value
Log individual points in detail or group
points together for trend analysis
Define multiple tables with different
logging conditions and attributes to
meet different needs within your facility
Configure database maintenance
actions to occur automatically, either
periodically or based on database size.

Store and Forward


Store and Forward is a powerful
feature unique to CIMPLICITY that
provides data integrity. If the
network connection between nodes
is lost for any reason, the local
node stores the logged data until the
network connection is reestablished.
Once the connection is reestablished,
the local data is sent to be logged in
the central database.

Reporting
By using database tools or third-party applications, you can easily access your logged
data to generate reports.
Generate separate reports for events, alarms and point data.
Generate reports for all available data or a specific time period.
Export retrieved data to other products, such as spreadsheets, for further analysis.

Which Database Is Right


For My Application?
GE Fanuc recommends Microsoft
SQL Server or Oracle for your data
logging applications. These robust
databases are able to support the
continuous data logging and volumes
associated with most monitoring and
control applications.
Microsoft Access was designed for
the office environment. This database
should only be considered for single
node, non-continuous applications
with minimal logging requirements.

Additional Features
Logged CIMPLICITY
data is available to any
qualified user on the
network. CIMPLICITY
software is not required
to view this data.
Database Logging
uses the multi-threaded
capability of Windows NT
to increase database
throughput.
You can log data from
remote CIMPLICITY
systems without interrupting
the remote system.
The database is updated
continuously, ensuring
reports contain accurate
and timely information.
Store and Forward
preserves data integrity

Microsoft Access can be used as


a reporting tool against a
SQL Server database.

Program Editor

The CIMPLICITY Basic Control Engine combines the power of CIMPLICITY


software with Visual Basic-style language, allowing for improved scripting and
programming capabilities. Ideal for integrators or end-users who want to tailor
their own applications, it consists of three main componentsthe Event Editor,
the Program Editor and the actual Basic Control Engine.

The Program Editor offers sophisticated development tools for creating


the programs that will later be executed as actions. Its rich Visual Basic-style
programming language has over 600 basic functions that directly integrate with
CIMPLICITY points, alarms and the error logger.
Multiple scripts can be debugged and run in parallel or in sequence. The Program
Editor supports setting watch points, examining and modifying variables, walking
object data structures, stepping through the program, and generating execution traces.

Advantages

Marquee is one of the fastest, most economical ways to share critical system
information with a large number of users. Used for years in the automotive industry,
marquees are message boards that can be mounted in factory aisles to give users
status information about a process. The Marquee tool lets you send informational
and alarm messages to multi-line marquee displays. If there is a problem, it is
displayed on marquees for all users in the area to see. Operators and maintenance
personnel know about problems immediately, so they can respond faster and
minimize downtime.
Marquee is fully configurable, with no custom coding required to retrieve alarm
or message information. You can determine which set of CIMPLICITY alarms you
want to send to the actual marquee. For each Marquee message, you assign a
message ID, alarm ID, alarm state, message header, message footer, message text,
the marquees on which to display the message, the attributes associated with the
message, and any CIMPLICITY point values to be displayed with the message.
The CIMPLICITY Marquee driver works with marquees produced by

CIMPLICITY HMI
Allows you to build new
device communications
interfaces and
applications that access
CIMPLICITY runtime data
Customize login dialogs
Easy exchange of
alarm information with
other applications

The CIMPLICITY Integrators Toolkit includes four powerful application


programming interfaces (APIs) that enable users to develop custom applications
that integrate seamlessly with CIMPLICITY HMI.
The Integrators Toolkit also lets you build new device communications interfaces
and applications that access CIMPLICITY runtime data, using standard Microsoft
C/C++ and the Microsoft Developers Studio.

Device Communications Toolkit


The Device Communications Toolkit provides an interface to CIMPLICITY HMI
project configuration data and runtime functions, making it an excellent tool for
developing custom I/O device communications interfaces.
The Device Communications Toolkit provides advanced features like:
Management of multiple polling rates
Retry following communications error
Alarm on communications failures
Support for unsolicited PLC data
Automatic poll after set point
Interface to project configuration
CIMPLICITY HMI dynamic configuration

Point Management API


The CIMPLICITY Point Management API lets you develop
sophisticated applications that access the CIMPLICITY run-time
point database. It also provides important point configuration data
and tools that help you organize your application.
Through the API, you can create and manage shopping lists of points.
Each list may contain any request type:
Snap Shot: Get the current value for the point
On-Change: Get the current point value and automatic
updates when the points value changes
On-Alarm: Get the current alarm state of the point and automatic
updates when the points alarm state changes
Timed: Receive the current point value periodically

Login API
With the Login API, you can develop and implement your own login dialog to
CIMPLICITY HMI. While HMI provides security through a standard login dialog,
high-security applications may require more advanced user ID and password
verification dialogs. You can create login dialogs with the flexibility, style and
security you require, then execute them from CimView or from scripts within
the Basic Control Engine.

Alarm Management APIs


There are three Alarm Management APIs
that provide an open interface to
CIMPLICITY HMIs runtime alarm system:
Alarm Management
Alarm Interested Process
Alarm Viewer API
The Alarm Management API lets
you generate custom application alarms
that are independent of point-based
alarms. With this interface, you can
generate, update and clear alarms.
This API also offers an Alarm Manager
extension for coupling alarm
management systems among
third-party packages. For example,
you can incorporate time-critical alarms
from a turbine control system.
The Alarm Interested Process API
extension lets you develop extended
alarming functions and generate special
application alarms. With it, you can set
your application to be notified of all
new alarms and changes to alarm states.
The Alarm Viewer API extension
lets you develop an alarm viewer
similar to CIMPLICITY, but customized
to your own needs.

Advantage
Sometimes you need
to tailor alarms to fit the
users application needs.
CIMPLICITY offers a
toolkit that gives you the
flexibility you need.

Flexible design allows you
to group similar recipes
Recipes can span
multiple programmable
devices and different
brands of devices.
Manual and automatic
upload and download
of recipes

The CIMPLICITY Recipes option lets you create, maintain, upload and download
recipes (a group of set points) to your production processes. Powerful, yet flexible and
easy to use, it significantly reduces your cost and time to design and manage recipes.
CIMPLICITY Recipes lets you maintain device-independent recipes, sending
a common set of parameter values to the equipment of your choicetheres no need
to maintain separate recipes for each piece of equipment. This configuration process
saves you hours of setup and ongoing maintenance of your recipes.
Recipes are easily downloaded through CimView and are designed and
maintained through a Windows-based interface. CIMPLICITY Recipes fulfills batch
and discrete part processing requirements. It performs manual as well as automatic
uploads and downloads of recipes based on system events.

Recipes Configuration Interface


CIMPLICITY Recipes lets you:
Create and manage recipe parameters, recipes and maps in a spreadsheet format
Import and export recipe groups to/from CSV format files
Archive recipe groups
Automatically compare recipe groups to accommodate changes in the groups
structure and layout
Recipe Objects in CimView
Recipe objects can also be embedded in CimView screens using OLE Controls.
With these objects, you can:
Manually upload recipes
Manually review/modify parameters, then download recipes

Recipe comparisons
Automatic reconciliation
of recipe groups
Import/export of recipes
to CSV files

How It Works
Recipe configurations are maintained
in recipe groups. Presented in a table
format, a recipe group contains all the
information required to produce a
product. The example below shows
a recipe group for bread, with recipes
for white, raisin and rye bread. These
recipes are stored in one recipe group,
because they have similar ingredients

and processes. At runtime, you can


download a recipe by specifying the
recipe group, recipe and map. With
a click of the mouse, you can specify
the kind of bread you want to make
and which production line should make
it. This flexibility helps you better manage
and control your production processes.

Basic Control Engine Interface for Recipes


Using extensions to the Basic Control Engine, Recipes provides a Scripting
interface that lets you automatically upload and download recipes based on
system events, such as point changes from a shop floor device

Parameters list the ingredients used


to make bread, along with process
parameters such as temperature,
mix time and bake time.

36

Features

Units are associated


with the parameters.

Recipes contain the


actual values to be
downloaded for
bread production.

Maps specify the points to where the values will be


downloaded. Maps do not have to be contiguous
areas of memory, and they can span several PLCs.
However, downloading to contiguous areas of
memory provides the best performance. They can
also specify virtual pointsthose which are used
at the system level but do not exist in any device.

A simple and unique solution to your
basic reporting needs
Report Manager makes it easy to generate basic process-related reports. Its unique,
because it works without a database. You simply preconfigure the reports you want
produced based on a timed or event basis and Report Manager will run in the
background, collecting and formatting the data for your reports.

38

A built-in scheduler allows unattended background reporting. It executes periodic,


daily, weekly, monthly and yearly reports. It also monitors events and can trigger
a report based on an event.
Report Manager maintains its own historical database within the reports being
generated. For example, minimum, maximum, average, standard deviation and
total values are stored as reports are generated.
The Report Designer features an integrated point browser that displays
CIMPLICITY points for quick and easy inclusion.

Easy To Design
Design your report template
in a matter of minutes using
intuitive point and click
features. Before final
installation, you can test
reports in accelerated time
mode to verify your design.
Easy To Execute
Produce your report either
from the Scheduler or from
CIMPLICITY HMI. The
Scheduler executes your
report template periodically
for instance, hourlyor
based on an event, such
as an alarm. It also monitors
process conditions and
prevents unnecessary
reports from being produced.
Reports are automatically
archived and printed.

Features

Report sectioning an easier way to create complex reports.


Calculations can be performed within the report.
Track time between events for downtime reporting.
The Integrated Report Viewer gives you quick access to archived report files.
Reports can be compared easily inside the Viewer.
Values can be entered after the report has been generated values such as
laboratory data or I/O values that were off-line when the report was made.
Report files are stored in ASCII text files for easy access by any
third-party package.

What Do I Purchase?

Easy To View
Retrieve your electronically
stored reports using simple
queries. The Viewer allows quick,
convenient access to any report,
anytime. You can even display
multiple reports simultaneously
for accurate comparison.
And your reports are accessible
via email, fax, LANs and WANs.

Report Manager has two componentsthe Report Manager


Suite and the Integrated Report Viewer. To generate reports
from your HMI Servers, purchase the Report Manager Suite.
It lets you configure your reports, gathers the requested data
from CIMPLICITY HMI, and places the data into the
reports. It also includes the Integrated Report Viewer,
which displays your reports.
To simply call up and review reports generated by the
Report Manager Suite, purchase the Integrated Report Viewer
for your HMI Viewers or HMI Servers.
Because Report Manager does not operate off of a database,
it does not support ad hoc queries. If you require these,
a better approach would be CIMPLICITY Data Logging to a
Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access or an Oracle database.

Redundancy
Increase availability for mission critical systems

Advantages

Cable Redundancy
CIMPLICITY supports the use of dual Ethernet networks to connect CIMPLICITY
servers and viewers. Information is transmitted on both networks simultaneously
so messages wont be lost if a failure occurs.

CIMPLICITY Redundancy assures that your system will continue to operate in the
event of a hardware failure. CIMPLICITY supports redundancy at several levels to
minimize the effect of any failure.

Easy to implement
Minimizes loss of
system functionality
Points and alarms are
synchronized on
redundant servers.
Maintains security without
forcing additional logons
Minimizes load on your
data acquisition network
Both the primary and the
redundant server log data
to independent databases,
assuring a complete
record of historical data.
Automatic failover
of server node and
viewer nodes

PLC Redundancy

Server Redundancy
CIMPLICITY projects can be configured so that a secondary system is ready to
take over operations automatically should the primary system fail. It provides
an automatic switchover from your primary system to a backup, in the event of
a hardware failure. All main HMI functions are transferred during the failure,
so critical data acquisition, alarming, logging and security operations continue.
During normal operation, the primary system collects data from your devices
and updates the secondary system. This reduces the data collection load on the
devices, improving response time. In the event of a failure, the secondary system
automatically begins collecting data from the devices, assuring alarm states and
point values are accurate.
Database logging occurs on both
y
systems. So, if the primary system fails,

CIMPLICITY supports redundant PLC configurations and will switch between PLCs
when one fails or takes over control operations.

logged data is still fully accessible.
Once the primary system is restored,
utility functions help you
resynchronize the databases.
CIMPLICITY Viewers connected
to a Redundant system will also
automatically switch from the primary
to the secondary server. The switch is
virtually transparent as new values are
provided by the secondary system.
Alarms notify you of the primary

Redundancy requires pairs of


CIMPLICITY HMI Servers for
Windows NT, and they must have
the same I/O count sizes. A pair can
be a combination of a development
and a runtime system. Youll need to
purchase the Redundancy option for
each pair of Servers.
Cable Redundancy is included
as part of CIMPLICITY Redundancy.
PLC Redundancy support is
included with GE Fanuc Series 90
TCP/IP protocol and with other select
communications drivers.
The Redundant Servers can support
the Viewers. You dont have to purchase
Redundancy for the Viewer, since only
Servers are set up as redundant nodes.
If you need redundancy protection for
a Viewer, simply purchase two Viewers.

CIMPLICITY screens.

WebView or Standard Viewer?


WebView is ideal for a group of casual CIMPLICITY users. Shared licensing
allows a user to connect to the Server and view data. When they are finished,
the WebView license is freed up for the next person. This especially benefits users
in plant management, finance or engineering, who must access process data to
make their decisions.
For dedicated operators who depend on CIMPLICITY for running and interacting
with the process, GE Fanuc recommends the standard CIMPLICITY Viewers.

WebGateway
CIMPLICITY WebGateway also lets you access your CIMPLICITY HMI data from
your office, home, hotel or anywhere in the world, via the Internet.
WebGateway lets you create HTML-format web documents containing
textual CIMPLICITY data values. You can also include graphical representations
of your process as bitmaps or dynamic ActiveX controls to enhance your screens.
When dialing in from a remote location, you can view your process status
and perform set points.

WebView or WebGateway?
With WebGateway, you create web pages (HTML documents) that can contain
point information as text. WebGateway is a very efficient and economical way to
share CIMPLICITY point information, such as production counts or process data,
with a large group of users.
With WebView, theres no need to create HTML documents. It uses the graphics
of your existing CimView screens and sends them to the web browser. If you need
to share more detailed information, such as alarms or process graphics,
we recommend WebView.

Advantages
Excellent remote
monitoring capabilities
Integration of facility
information to the desktop
Exceptional valueconcurrent user pricing
(you pay per active
connects, not all nodes)

Licensing
WebView provides shared licensing. Licenses are loaded on the CIMPLICITY Server.
When a WebView user accesses the system, they occupy a license. When they log
off, the license is freed up for the next user to access. WebGateway is provided with
an unlimited user access license.

Support Services
GE Fanuc offers a wide range of expert application engineering services to help
you design, install and implement a CIMPLICITY FactoryWeb Internet system. From
equipment selection to writing web documents, GE Fanuc can be there every step of
the way. Contact your CIMPLICITY distributor or local GE Fanuc sales

CIMPLICITY Power
Management Control System (PMCS)
A powerful tool to monitor your power quality
and consumption
With CIMPLICITY
PMCS you can:
Discover cost savings with
a cost-allocation module
that fully supports Real
Time Pricing rate analysis
Evaluate the quality
of your power and test
for potentially
destructive harmonics
Determine your true load
capacities by generating
a real-time trend report
Pinpoint problems with
event logger tool that
automatically captures
and sorts device events
and alarms and sorts data
to identify phase unbalance,
phase loss, overvoltage,
and other issues
Reduce downtime with
annunciator tool that lets
you visualize system and
alarm status at a glance

Tracking and controlling facility power from a desktop computer is easy with
CIMPLICITY Power Management Control System (PMCS) software. A click of the
mouse opens a power-distribution-profile window, showing real-time trends, events,
alarms, waveforms and usage patterns information to help you improve quality,
reliability and prevent peak demand surcharges. For small industrials, hospitals,
universities and large manufacturers, this customizable, open-design solution fits
todays facilities-and can expand for tomorrows.

Evaluating the quality of your power


Included in CIMPLICITY PMCS software is a diagnostics waveform capture tool
that records and graphically overlays waveforms to help you determine the source
and magnitude of harmonic distortions. This feature can be used to:
Test for harmonics that cause frequent overheating of motors, circuit breaker
tripping, fuse blowing, and capacitor failures
Identify negative effects of non-linear, harmonic-generating loads such as
variable speed motor drives, uninterruptible power supplies or fluorescent lighting
ballasts for corrective action

Determining your true power capacity


To help you evaluate actual load capacities, the PMCS facility planning tool generates
real-time trend reports. This capability can be used to:
Perform load studies to discover how close you are to maximum load
capacities needed information when considering facility upgrades or expansion
Determine if new or additional equipment is required, or if production can
be increased with existing resources

Pinpointing the source of trouble and reducing downtime


Pinpointing problems is easily done with the PMCS event logger tool. It records
events and alarms by device, event and time, then lets you sort them to help
you discover the root cause. This feature makes it easy to:
Perform facility-wide analysis for determining the location and nature
of power-related trouble
Troubleshoot phase unbalance, phase loss and overvoltage problems
Provide proof to the utility of any corrective action they may need to take
Maintain a continuous power-quality audit

Discovering power-usage patterns and cost savings


Discover cost savings with the PMCS cost-allocation module that fully supports
Real Time Pricing by allowing a comprehensive rate analysis. This feature
makes it possible to:
Create a usage history and billing record for a single device, cost center or facility
Perform what-if cost-projection scenarios to quickly see the revenue and profit
impacts of different parameters, such as:
shifting from one rate schedule to another
switching utility suppliers
moving usage into off-peak periods
aggregating individual billing accounts

Embracing The Highest Quality Standards


GE has adopted an approach to quality called Six Sigma. The goal of Six Sigma is
to deliver the highest quality products and services to our customers. Six Sigma is
a quality and reliability benchmark defined as 3.4 defects per million opportunities.
The Six Sigma Quality Initiative at GE Fanuc is a strategic focus to ensure that
each and every customer is 100% satisfied with the products and services we provide.
In addition, Six Sigma is focused on increasing the speed of getting high quality
products to market and doing so at the lowest possible cost.
Six Sigma starts with the premise that you cant improve what you dont measure.
CIMPLICITY software has become a corporate standard at GE and is used extensively
for the collection, analysis and presentation of statistical quality data.
For our customers, Six Sigma means getting what you want, when you want it,
on time, undamaged and working the five "critical to quality" factors, or CTQs,
that have been identified in the early stages of our efforts.
At GE Fanuc, we are working to get every process in our business to achieve
Six Sigma quality levels. In Engineering, CIMPLICITY is being used to measure and
display key customer and product CTQs. In Manufacturing, processes are constantly
monitored and tuned to build product at Six Sigma levels. In Sales & Marketing,
focus is applied to be sure that each interaction between the customer and GE Fanuc
is the best it can be.
In short, Six Sigma has changed GE Fanuc. It is now the way we work and is
involved in everything we do and in every product we design.
