GE Aviation joined PI in 2015 to discuss the foundation of their digital vision and strategy which centered very much around the alignment of their engineering processes. With data residing in multiple places and formats globally, consolidating this information into one place to maximize speed, visibility and efficiency, was near impossible. That is, they hoped, until they embarked on their digital transformation journey which leveraged GE’s parent company success within the Industrial Internet space.
A year on, and after an aggressive execution, they are now aligning their efforts not just with digital engineering practices but with an entire, fully digital organization. Armed with a year's worth of successes, challenges and practical applications, the team return to continue their story.
