GE Digital Recognized as a Leader in 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems
GE Digital, a leading and innovative provider of solutions for Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), said on Friday that Gartner has placed its Proficy Smart Factory (MES) software solution as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems. 1 The evaluation was based on specific criteria that looked at how complete the company’s vision was and how well it could carry it out.
Magic Quadrant reports are the result of thorough, fact-based research in certain markets. They show the relative positions of the providers in markets with high growth and clear differences between the providers. There are four groups of providers: Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries, and Niche Players. You can use the research to get the most out of market analysis based on your business and technology needs.
“Smart manufacturing initiatives are changing the focus of manufacturers from internally focused, plant-specific functionality to more end-to-end solutions, changing MES from plant monitoring to a key data and intelligence source for the enterprise and supply chain,”said Rick Franzosa and Christian Hestermann, authors of the Gartner Critical Capabilities for Manufacturing Execution Systems.
GE Digital was also one of the top two vendors out of the 19 that Gartner looked at in the Critical Capabilities for Manufacturing Execution Systems report. In the Continuous Process Manufacturing Use Case, GE Digital scored 4.06 out of 5.00, Complex Discrete Manufacturing scored 3.98 out of 5.00, Batch/Repetitive Flow Manufacturing scored 4.00 out of 5.00, and Highly Regulated Industries scored 4.08 out of 5.00.
“It is a great honor to be named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for MES. We believe this important recognition is confirmation of our ability to deliver critical outcomes such as improved efficiency, higher quality, and reduced waste to manufacturers around the world regardless of their industry, the size of their in-house staff, their budget, or the starting level of their digital transformation maturity,”said Richard Kenedi, General Manager for GE Digital’s Manufacturing and Digital Plant business.
From a single application, GE Digital can do process, discrete, and mixed manufacturing. GE Digital’s strategy for its product portfolio uses cloud-native deployment, enterprise system management with zero-downtime upgrades, new microservices technologies to combine MES and IIoT capabilities, and the company’s Proficy® Operations Hub software, which has a low-code/no-code application development environment and a common configuration hub.
