    • The second-largest IT
      services company has collaborated with GE and others to develop these solutions,
      designed to help manufacturers and other industrial enterprises improve asset
      efficiency, and build more intelligent linkages between design, production and
      field testing, Infosys said in a statement.

    • The Industrial
      Internet Consortium (IIC), an international body of industries, governments and
      academics focused on developing best practices for the Industrial Internet,
      recently approved two Infosys-led “testbeds”.

    • Asset efficiency
      testbed enables holistic monitoring, analysis and optimization of critical
      infrastructure assets. The first use-case focuses on predictive maintenance for
      an industrial asset such as aircraft landing gear. The asset efficiency testbed
      team included Infosys, GE and other industry partners.

    • Infosys said the
      Industrial Digital Thread testbed creates more intelligent linkages between the
      three phases of manufacturing – design, production and field testing/service.
      By capturing, analyzing and relaying real-time sensory and historical data at
      each of these phases, the Thread  will
      generate insights that can help field engineers and service teams identify the
      root cause of component failure easily, and provide faster corrections to flaws
      in design engineering and manufacturing operations.

    • Bill Ruh, chief
      digital officer, GE Digital, said, “The Industrial Internet Consortium was
      established to help organizations break down the barriers of technology silos
      and support better integration of the physical and digital worlds. We see
      brilliant manufacturing as the next wave of Industrial Internet innovation,
      following asset performance management. We are excited about our most recent
      collaboration with Infosys to advance these two areas, and drive increased
      efficiency and productivity for industry.”

    • IDT leverages two
      open-standard Big Data analytics engines – the Infosys Information Platform,
      which provides in-memory data analytics and big data management, and GE’s
      Predix platform that delivers data acquisition, processing and user interface
      and application development. IDT has been co-developed by Infosys and GE, and
      will be implemented first as a pilot project at GE Aviation.

    • “The Internet of
      Things is about dissolving the layers of complexity and the intermediaries that
      create distance between the point of manufacturing and the point of
      consumption, between understanding and preventing points of failure in the
      manufacturing process, in machines or in critical processes, and between what
      the customer wants and what is delivered. The value comes from bringing
      intelligence directly to these end-points, and in doing this we can completely
      reimagine the notion of industrial manufacturing, and every industry, and we
      look forward to doing much more in our work with GE in these areas,” said
      Vishal Sikka, Infosys CEO.
