The best manufacturers in the world rely on a skilled workforce, quality materials, optimal processes, and reliable machines. When any of these start to fail, they create delays, costs overruns, waste, and anxiety on the shop floor.

That’s why GE is investing in the Brilliant Manufacturing Suite, powered by the Predix platform, to create software applications that can tell manufacturers how their plants are doing. GE’s solutions focus on empowering decision-makers through real-time visibility and deep operational intelligence. These solutions support insightful decisions with real-time quality and execution information and help balance plant production to improve product quality and profitability.

Now, GE Brilliant Hacks is challenging developers like you to build smart, connected Industrial Internet of Things apps that harness the power of the GE Brilliant Manufacturing data APIs and microservices. Build apps, product extensions, or data visualizations that provide deeper insight into the manufacturing process, enabling plant managers to predict, adapt, and react for maximum efficiency.

Ideas Round (Feb. 21 – Mar. 21): Participants will submit their best app, extension, or data visualization ideas to solve manufacturing problems using the GE Brilliant Manufacturing Suite of APIs. The top 30 ideas will be selected to move on to the Build Round.

Build Round (Mar. 27 – May 8): The top 30 ideas from round one will receive access to a hackathon-only Predix environment to build their idea into a functioning solution.
