GE Digital, a leading and innovative provider of solutions in the Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) market, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner® as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems for its Proficy® Smart Factory (MES) software solution.1 The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analyzed the company’s overall completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Magic Quadrant reports are a culmination of rigorous, fact-based research in specific markets, providing a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the providers in markets where growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct. Providers are positioned into four quadrants: Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries, and Niche Players. The research enables you to get the most from market analysis in alignment with your unique business and technology needs.

GE Digital also scored among the top two vendors out of 19 recognized in the Critical Capabilities for Manufacturing Execution Systems report across the four Use Cases Gartner measured: 4.06 out of 5.00 in Continuous Process Manufacturing, 3.98 out of 5.00 in Complex Discrete Manufacturing, 4.00 out of 5.00 in Batch/Repetitive Flow Manufacturing, and 4.08 out of 5.00 in Highly Regulated Industries .

“Smart manufacturing initiatives are changing the focus of manufacturers from internally focused, plant-specific functionality to more end-to-end solutions, changing MES from plant monitoring to a key data and intelligence source for the enterprise and supply chain,” said Rick Franzosa and Christian Hestermann , authors of the Gartner Critical Capabilities for Manufacturing Execution Systems.

GE Digital offers process, discrete, and mixed manufacturing capabilities from a single application. GE Digital’s product portfolio strategy takes advantage of cloud-native deployment, enterprise system management with zero-downtime upgrades, new microservices technologies to meld MES and IIoT capabilities, and a low-code / no-code application development environment and common configuration hub in the company’s Proficy® Operations Hub software.

“It is a great honor to be named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for MES,” said Richard Kenedi , General Manager for GE Digital’s Manufacturing and Digital Plant business. “We believe this important recognition is confirmation of our ability to deliver critical outcomes such as improved efficiency, higher quality, and reduced waste to manufacturers around the world regardless of their industry, the size of their in-house staff, their budget, or the starting level of their digital transformation maturity.”
