GE Fanuc has announced version 1.2 of its work process management solution, Proficy Workflow, which allows operations experts to create and modify work processes without requiring support from IT.

It allows companies to digitise and streamline production – from Electronic Work Instructions for Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and corrective action to HACCP monitoring and compliance tracking.

Drag and Drop Electronic Work Processes, a new form designer in version 1.2, eliminates coding for display screens and forms.

Production teams simply drag and drop in an graphical WYSIWYG environment to build forms and displays for manual data entry and automated entry, from barcode readers and other devices.

The displays can also be an actionable part of other applications on the Proficy SOA platform.

GE Fanuc and third-party software can connect to the Proficy SOA platform through service providers.

Users, including operators, can share data and displays across applications without having to switch from one application to another.

The form designer also supports development of work process templates, which can be published into a library for reuse as displays and forms throughout a plant or company.

Version 1.2 includes an ActiveX Task List that can be used within any ActiveX container.

Operators can follow step-by-step instructions within their software, such as a HMI, integrating their work instructions for ease of use.

The software features a Dynamic Task List (My Task List), so the production expert can control what the operator sees during the execution of the workflow.

The Task List has multiple panes, which can be hidden and expanded.

With the Dynamic Task List, companies can give focus to certain work instructions in the display to help guide the operator.

Proficy Workflow Version 1.2 also offers one-click deployment.

If the user is in the plant and wants to run Proficy Workflow from a specific computer, they can go to a URL and, through a web browser, automatically install the Workflow Task List on that computer.

The system will automatically maintain the most current version with no additional administration.
