Industrial Internet solution data collection system for OEMs and end users
GE IP's Equipment Insight is designed to help OEMs and their end users securely collect and analyze machine data by collecting and managing long-term performance data and alarms and user access.
GE IP's Equipment Insight is designed to help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their end users securely collect and analyze machine data and deliver that information to people in their own organization and to end users.
With functionality provided by GE's Proficy software, the Equipment Insight server collects and manages long-term performance data and alarms and administers user access. Equipment Insight performs trend analysis, from one machine to an entire fleet. It then delivers role specific key performance indicators (KPIs), alarms and trends to either the end user or OEM personnel via mobile device applications or a web browser. All of this is guided by an equipment asset model created by the OEM. The appliance collects equipment data from nearly any brand of intelligent control device.
GE's Equipment Insight solution takes advantage of the Real-time Operational Intelligence (RtOI) paradigm. It combines an on-premise or private cloud server architecture with rugged Field Agents to create an solution that monitors asset health, leveraging ever-expanding industrial data sets to predict equipment failures.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
