"I have worked with Rain Engineering for many years. In my experience with Rain, I have seen them redesign a poorly implemented MES, provide support for highly complex 24/7/365 systems, implement new features into MES, and implement a new MES in the cloud. Their technical skills are top-notch. I have worked with many other companies that provide services similar to Rain. Those other companies just don’t have the dedication to positive outcomes."

GE Digital Trusts Rain Engineering
to consult, integrate, and support manufacturers using Proficy.

Now more than ever, manufacturing leaders are challenged to balance a multitude of competing priorities. This is especially true among those companies in the food, beverage, or consumer goods industries. Raw materials and energy costs are rising; customers increasingly demand just-in-time order fulfillment; and lower-cost competitors are entering the market with lean, direct-to-consumer production capabilities.

Although many manufacturers have invested significantly in automation solutions—HMI/ SCADA control networks, MES/MOM and ERP/MRP applications, and database historians—most manufacturing information systems exist as disparate data silos. Production managers must frequently employ a piecemeal combination of spreadsheets and paper reports to derive basic manufacturing performance metrics.

With each process that gets “bolted on” to your information system, there is an opportunity for failure. Simple process changes can cause critical data flows to fail, and their manually-intensive nature severely limits business agility and scale.

The Most Comprehensive, Flexible MES On The Market

Regardless of what SCADA, OPC, or Historian your company currently uses, the Rain Cloud MES Powered by Proficy was designed from the ground up to accommodate seamless integrations with these systems. With Rain Engineering, not only do you get a powerful cloud-based MES, but you also get a team of engineers to integrate your unique equipment and systems to ensure you are connected properly and gathering the data you need.

I have been collaborating with Rain Engineering for the past two years, and can state unequivocally, that this has been one of the most fruitful support relationships I have enjoyed over the last 25 years as an Automation Engineer. Their Proficy/PlantApps support goes above and beyond what is typically expected in these relationships. Our support plan has made it easy to meet up, train up, and keep initiatives moving forward.
