General Electric (GE): E.ON Gets Faster, Lower Cost Cycles with OpFlex SolutionsE.ON's plants ran 4000+ hours per year, now see fewer than 1000+ hours of profitable operation. E.ON needed a fast, reliable and low-cost cycle plants.General Electric (GE): Unifying Predictive Analytics and Real-time Process Optimization for Oil & GasA leading oil & gas company and one of GE’s most trusted and innovative partners had no way of integrating independent equipment issue detection capabilities. The company was losing money as a result of unplanned downtime due to maintenance scheduling issues and outdated software systems. They believed that a well-designed combination of IT assets would generate stronger insight than they had, affording them the ability to monitor offshore equipment from an onshore facility using real-time insight and predictive analytics.General Electric (GE): American Eagle Achieves LEED with GE LED Lighting FixturesAmerican Eagle Outfitters (AEO) was in the process of building a new distribution center. The AEO facility management team decided to look at alternate options for lighting layout that could provide energy and maintenance savings. AEO would need a full-time maintenance employee just to replace burned-out fluorescent tubes.
