They say “anything can be connected, will be connected.” Humans aim to not only connect devices but also make them communicate with one another. This is where the Internet of Things (IoT) comes to the fore. IoT opens doors to endless opportunities by solving complex and interwoven human challenges.
In this world of Big Data, where machine-to-machine connections are estimated to reach 27 billion by 2024, we at GE Digital predict that the industrial Internet will contribute the US $15 trillion to global GDP in the coming two decades.
IoT is influencing businesses, and there is a need for brands to optimise their enterprise operations and redefine their business models to sustain in the highly competitive environment. IoT-powered business-to-business applications are capturing more value and are estimated to grow by 70 percent by 2025.
GE Digital was founded re-imagining an enterprise’s infrastructure through IoT to digitally transform its manufacturing processes. We use Internet of Things to repair freight locomotives. By analysing data in real-time, we develop advanced software to control and monitor operations in industrial process.
We repair freight locomotives at GE Remanufacturing Facility in Grove City, Pennsylvania. By using GE Digital software, we fix around 1,200 freight locomotives every year. We use sophisticated technology and software to understand the extent of damage in freight engines and do what needs to be done.
Our team of engineers have profound knowledge and experience on industrial Internet, which makes it easy for us to digitally transform remanufacturing operation for locomotives. We create centralised software to design, build, operate, and manage the entire lifecycle of remanufacturing.
We enable businesses to function at a larger pace, work smarter, and drive efficiency by harnessing the potential of IoT. Our GE Digital software makes it possible for industrialists to understand different work processes, know the status of the job and keep a tab on the work and workers.
We digitized our processes in 2013 to safeguard heavy tools in the factory. Since the digital transformation of our remanufacturing industry, we are able to report 96 stations by getting access to the operations less than a second. Besides efficiency, our software provides flexibility; we can check factory operations from anywhere within the unit.
