GE’s Digital Industrial Technology
GE’s digital industrial solutions available for industrial customers facilitate a marvelous improvement in efficiency and productivity for energy, healthcare, and aviation technologies being used for the Olympic Games in a direct or indirect way. GE’s industrial internet platform, Predix, connects the physical and digital realms of industries together such as power or aviation industries. GE creates a ‘Digital Twin’, a digital model for physical assets such as gas turbines or jet engines, and helps businesses use these models to understand real-life industrial machinery and ongoing projects to create successful outcomes. GE Digital’s Predix increase productivity through asset performance management (APM) and brilliant factories. Backed by its digital industrial technology, GE provides Energy Monitoring System (EMS) to the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, enabling prompt diagnosis for quick problem solving in the case of power failures and disruptions, and leading to more stability and reliability for the Games.
GE’s Healthcare Technology
GE has advanced technology in healthcare industry, including diagnostic technology, information technology, patient monitoring systems, medicinal development, biomedicine manufacturing technology, and solution services to improve the aforementioned fields. Based on this deep domain expertise, since 2005, GE, as a Worldwide Partner of the Olympic Games, has been providing advanced medical technology and expertise to the Olympic Games Polyclinic, the on-site hospital in the Olympic Village, for Olympians and volunteers participating in the Games. Through its partnership with the PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (POCOG), GE will be providing digital mobile X-ray units, diagnostic ultrasound machines, patient monitors, and PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) at the Polyclinic in PyeongChang and Gangneung, as well as medical stations in Bokwang and Jeongson, along with the Athlete Management Solution (AMS) which is a newly developed cloud-based solution that collects both medical records and sport-specific data for medical staff, to enable individualized care for the Olympians. GE provides healthcare professionals and their patients in more than 100 countries with efficient and transformational healthcare solutions, by embracing digital industrial transformation into healthcare technology.
GE’s Aviation Technology
GE manufactures jet engines and parts, aerial battlespace systems and machinery systems for civilian and military aircraft worldwide. An aircraft powered by GE engines takes flight every 2 seconds somewhere in the world. The Olympic Games is one of the largest international sports events, where hundreds of thousands of athletes and spectators will visit the host city mostly by flight. GE offers an aircraft engine related maintenance service through its global network, aiming to enhance productivity beyond conventional standards of aviation services. Backed by its digital industrial technology, GE analyzes the data produced by aircraft and aircraft engines and provides clients with groundbreaking insight to maximize operational efficiency. GE also leverages advanced additive manufacturing technology to increase efficiency. As a pioneer in additive manufacturing, GE understands the value and potential of 3D printing as a way to completely transform manufacturing in aviation industries. Through the knowhow and expert technology accumulated by producing aircraft parts using additive manufacturing technology, GE is opening up a new horizon of possibilities in the aviation industry.
