Proficy Change Management
Safe, Secure, Flexible & Automatic
Proficy Change Management is powerful software that enables your team to manage, store and retreive your automation systems software, configuration, code and plant floor documentation easily. Proficy Change Management has powerful capabilities including user based security, version control, audit trails, e-signatures, central storage, automated & manual backup and recovery for any file, configuration or code base.
Proficy Change Management offers an automated way to help your organization assess, monitor, manage, control—and lower—project costs as well as ongoing maintenance costs. In addition, by providing traceability, notification of changes and regulatory compliance, it drives increased efficiency of your personnel, and as a result, your productivity.
Proficy Change Management is pre-configured to support a variety of commonly used software and devices in the industrial environment, including GE Intelligent Platforms, Rockwell, Schneider, Siemens and many more. It can also manage any file type such as documents, spreadsheets, drawings and more with our easy-to-use Wizard for a complete plant or factory asset management system.
Proficy Change Management is used for a wide variety of applications such as:
Quality - Ensure that your process is using the most recent set points in your SCADA or PLC control programs to ensure the product will meet the expectations of the customer. Setup notification within Proficy Change Management to keep quality in check.
Safety - Changes at the control level can affect workers safety. With Proficy Change Management, the software can evaluate for the existence of dated code and any unauthorized PLC forces so you know about potential safety issues before they occur!
Compliance - Proficy Change Management helps you meet change control compliance regulations whether they be government mandated (NERC, CIP, 21 CFR Part 11) or internal policy regulations.
Disaster Recovery - Proficy Change Management drives accountability, uptime and machine efficiency by ensuring the latest backups are stored.
Process Improvement - Proficy Change Management enables your six sigma and lean teams to baseline the current state of the machine control configuration and code easier and quicker by facilitating on demand backups prior to kaizens and quickly reverting back if necessary.
Version Control ensures that only one person at a time is making changes to the system and archives the versions once those changes are made—providing the ability to revert to a previous version.
Security enables you to monitor and control who has access to what function—reducing the number of errors that occur due to unauthorized access. It also enables you to set up a permission hierarchy by roles, which eliminates the need to establish permissions for every employee.
Audit Trails and Reports allow you to track what has been happening with programs and devices in your plant, automatically providing the “who, what, when, where and why” information of events taking place throughout your operation.
Automated Scheduling, Notification and Reporting allows you to check the integrity of what is happening on a regularly scheduled basis. It automatically reviews server files and compares them to what is running, providing notification of any discrepancies through regular automated reporting.
Electronic Signatures enable you to gain additional control over changes in your plant by allowing you to enforce authorization to make changes to your devices and projects. This functionality can help you meet regulations such as 21 CFR Part 11 or NERC and improve your Good Manufacturing Practice.
HTML Interface & Plant Layout allows you to customize the end-user interface to match your plant’s needs. This powerful point-and-click interface makes accessing projects and devices as easy as surfing the net, helping simplify the interface for your end users, thus reducing errors and the need for training.

Whats new in Version 5.9
New 'Add Product Wizard' - The new product wizard streamlines the set up of documents and FTP devices, which secures your automation software and reduces system setup time. You can create your own product types by answering a few key questions about the files you want it to manage, and it automatically creates a profile for those file types. It can be used to manage any file type and comes pre-configured with templates for handling of FTP devices such as Robots, Vision Systems, and CNCs, file upload-download for SCADA systems, PC control systems and other file storage systems.
New Web-Based End User Client - The HTML-based client is a thin, easy-to-deploy client with a small footprint that will save you time and effort installing or updating traditional ‘thick’ clients. It also provides easy access to projects on the Change Management server. The client provides access to common end-user functions such as check out, check in, open, version reports, compare and more. The drag-and-drop configuration allows you to easily create a user interface to organize projects and provide customized web pages if desired. The client supports popular third-party products from Rockwell, Siemens, and Schneider, as well as status and compare for Proficy Machine Edition. You can still administer and access older project types via the traditional client. The new client will also work with version 5.7 or 5.8 servers, and can be used in systems with the traditional client.
Also new are several common administrative tools within the thin client that allows you to add projects, configure project properties, add users to projects, configure which groups can access the project, set up email notifications, and edit the navigation tree in the client. It’s simple to use and puts the power of administration at your fingertips.
