Thrust for Sale: Innovation Takes Flight

Speed is a critical factor in flying. Without it, planes can't take off and stay aloft. But a different kind of speed is just as crucial to aviation: the speed of innovation. GE is keeping pace with innovation in three ways: First, by working to build better and more powerful engines; second, by enabling smart sensors to capture important data from aircraft, no matter what the conditions of the flight; and third, by developing integrated software to analyze the findings. The result is business model that has transformed from simply selling jet engines to offering airlines a spectrum of performance enhancements across the entire management of a flight. Companies using this connected approach benefit, too, by boosting the number of miles flown while improving fuel efficiency, flight times, and passenger safety – and by making better decisions in 2015.

WHEN HARDWARE MET SOFTWARE: MINING THE VALUE OF THE INDUSTRIAL INTERNET

 The Industrial Internet is already helping companies shave costs and boost performance. Union Pacific, America’s largest railroad company, has improved productivity by wiring its locomotives with sensors that monitor parts and supply data to algorithms that try to predict whether a component might break down and when.

 

White Paper
THE COMBINATION OF NETWORKS AND MACHINES COULD ADD $10 TO $15 TRILLION TO GLOBAL GDP

The Industrial Revolution radically changed the way we use energy and make things. The Internet Revolution altered how we communicate, consumer information, and spend money. A combination of these two transformations, called the Industrial Internet, now links networks, data, and machines. It promises to remake global industry, boost productivity, and launch an entirely new age of prosperity and growth.
 

What is the Industrial Internet?

Industrial machines have always issued early warnings, but in an inconsistent way and in a language that people could not understand.

The advent of networked machines with embedded sensors and advanced analytics tools has changed that reality.
