Automated backup and controlled centralized storage of your most critical CNC files to reduce the risk and costs associated with unplanned downtime is what Proficy Change Management software was developed to do. Developed by GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms, a unit of GE Enterprise Solutions (Charlottesville, VA), it’s also said to provide quick disaster ­recovery if a file is lost or corrupted on your machine tool, ­minimizing downtime.

It has an automated compare function that detects any changes made on the device to controlled files, so approved files can easily be restored. An e-mail alert of a change is provided. And, using the product’s Scheduler feature, automated backup ensures that the most current copies of critical files are archived.

“Change Management for CNC is open for customization with its innovative scripting language and HTML interface, so ­customers can completely tailor the product to their processes,” says Mark Brownhill, machine tool software solutions product manager for GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms.

In addition to supporting GE Fanuc’s CNC, PLC, and HMI products, it reportedly also supports a wide range of other global control products. “This product will be critical in many industries that just cannot afford downtime on their machine tools,” he says.
