FARNBOROUGH, England, 12 July 2016. GE Aviation’s new Digital Solutions business has created a scaled digital collaboration center in its pavilion (P2) at the Farnborough International Air Show much like the centers they are building around the world to identify and address customers’ operational challenges and drive better business outcomes.

As a result of recent customer collaboration, flydubai and GE Aviation launched one of the first digital customer solutions built on GE’s Predix platform. The network operations insights solution is designed to help flydubai minimize the impact of unavoidable delays, enhance pilot operational understanding, while optimally protecting schedules and revenue.

Network operations insights on Predix were implemented at flydubai in late June.

“This is exactly how we want to work together and help customers to drive greater efficiency,” says Jim Daily, vice president & chief digital officer of GE Aviation. “This solution gives flydubai the real-time tools to understand the impact of potential operational disruptions in order to minimize an impact on their network.”

GE’s software architects and developers are working with customers in their collaboration center at Farnborough, while demonstrating digital solutions, including:

  • Network Operations Insights
  • Mobile Pilot Insights
  • Flight Analytics on Predix
  • Flight Phase Analyzer
  • Water Wash Optimizer, Digital Solution for TrueChoice Flight Hour
  • ClearView Invoicing, Digital Solution for TrueChoice Flight Hour
  • Engine Health Validator, Digital Solution for TrueChoice Transitions

These advancements in data and analytic technologies are examples of where GE is taking Predix, the cloud-based platform for creating innovative, Industrial Internet applications that turn real-time operational data into actionable insights for aviation.

GE opened the first collaboration center in Dubai in 2015 to support customers’ operations in the region. The center in Paris opened in mid-June 2016 and the center in Shanghai opens next week (July 20). The center in Austin, Texas, is planned to open this fall.
