Cloud Solution Helps Make Better Sense of Data from Facility Operations

GE’s Intelligent Platforms business and longtime partner AutomaTech have announced FacilityConneX, an enterprise Cloud solution delivering new levels of Predictive Facilities Management capabilities via smart asset monitoring, advanced predictive intelligence, continuous energy management and equipment optimization—all enabled by the Industrial Internet.

Powered by Equipment Insight from GE Predictivity, FacilityConneX helps facility managers make better sense of vast amounts of data that comes from their facility operations and industrial equipment with Real-time Operational Intelligence (RtOI). By leveraging the Industrial Internet, this solution can transform that data into smart insights and corrective actions that will optimize efficiency and ultimately save energy and cost. And, real-time mobile access to critical data allows users to monitor the heath of each asset in the facility and understand how efficient equipment and operations are running from virtually any device, anywhere.

FacilityConneX is currently in use at Southcoast Health, a group of four hospital campuses in Massachusetts. Southcoast has multiple Building Management Systems from different vendors managing approximately 1.7 million square feet of facility space. FacilityConneX was implemented to identify non-performing equipment and optimize assets that could lower energy costs by tracking energy and utility usage and forecast usage against budget. Management also wanted to receive notifications related to equipment maintenance. More than 100 analytics running across almost 1,000 different pieces of equipment identify any issues Southcoast is experiencing and the probable cause of those issues. The system then recommends areas where their Services and Maintenance personnel should go investigate or implement a corrective action.

Southcoast Hospitals had also signed an MOU (Memo of Understanding) with the local utilities to get additional rebates for improvements they make in saving energy. FacilityConneX provides the proof that their improvements were completed and that they worked.

GE’s patented GEO-intelligence technology enables the system to intelligently provide information based on user location, role, and asset location. This technology uses situational awareness technology that combines criticality of situation with location and proximity to ensure that the user has the information they need, saving time and cost.
