Chicago, IL — GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms announced Proficy‚Â® Change Management for CNC at IMTS 2008 in Chicago, IL. This new solution reduces the risk and costs associated with unplanned downtime by automatically backing up and controlling centralized storage of critical CNC files. It also provides quick disaster recovery in the event a file is lost or corrupted on the machine tool because the availability of a current version of essential CNC files is ensured.
Proficy Change Management for CNC has an automated compare function that detects when changes are made on the device to controlled files. This function can restore approved files and provide an email alert of the change. And, automated backup using the product‚â€™s Scheduler feature ensures that the most current copies of critical files are archived.
The central repository and deployment features ensure that all assets of the same type are operating under the same parameters, and approved changes can be systematically rolled out. Electronic signatures, audit trails and security features control access to the files and provide the documentation for regulatory compliance. And, version control features ensure that changes made by multiple approved users do not conflict.
Visit Booth A-8418 at this year’s IMTS for a demonstration of Proficy Change Management for CNC.
