“This release enhances Proficy Real-Time Information Portal’s capabilities in three areas,” said Jack Wilkins, Product Manager for Proficy Production Management. “First, it offers a tighter integration with GE Fanuc’s production management software like Proficy Plant Applications. Secondly, the context of plant floor data is improved with new tools to represent it like dials, gauges, and a heat map. Finally, 3.0 takes a step forward in its ability to mine third-party databases with its enhanced statement builder and improved interaction with that data through enhanced forms capabilities.”

A single web client combines content from other GE Fanuc software applications, such as Proficy® HMI/SCADA – iFIX and data from across all on-line data sources within the plant and the organization allowing for real-time decision making at all levels. Proficy Portal’s graphical presentation rapidly communicates essential information from more complex data sets for notification of alerts, status changes and data summaries.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
