GED Introduces GED Software
May 5, 2020
GED made revisions to the look and feel of its software offering to highlight the functions and benefits of each product. The company retired NxWare and renamed the software department and group of products, now called GED Software.
“We’ve simplified our suite of software to bring more meaning and relevance to the products themselves,” says Tony DiFiore, software R&D manager.
The product group will encompass two categories. Production Control & Analytics is used in office settings to create and release/organize schedules for machinery to run. Machinery Software retrieves data from scheduling software to communicate to machinery on a plant floor, translating human input to machine output, and provides schedule and machine statuses back to the Production Control & Analytics software.
“By grouping each product under one of two categories, we’re boosting the importance of the individual GED Software products,” DiFiore explains.
With a comprehensive manufacturing execution system to tie every aspect of the manufacturing process together, GED Software drives IG and window production by connecting front-end systems directly to IG and window systems, the company reports, which enables customers to optimize their IG and window production floor.
“When introduced into a window production environment, GED Software connects the manufacturing floor, integrates with existing systems, increases production efficiency, gathers essential machine data, optimizes material usage, and drives IG and vinyl production processes,” says Tim McGlinchy, executive VP of engineering and R&D. “We can work with the customer to provide customized solutions tailored to their production needs,” adds McGlinchy.
The new brand will be rolled out over the next few months with marketing programs (website, sales literature, etc.), and within the software itself.
