Those productivity gains come at the expense of changing long running procedures that people are resistant to change. In the case of jet engine repair and maintenance the technology is less of a challenge than getting the workforce to change inventory and work scheduling procedures. The big money is in the major airlines sector, and the ability to quickly influence procedure is in the private plane sector. I'll bet on the startup that offers a watered down version of what GE is developing to a sector they feel is too small to move the needle in the GE play book. Classic Innovators Dilemma case study. How can the CIO and HR team up to minimize the dampening effect of embedded procedure? Innovation requires acceptance or else it is just invention.

If you're a manufacturer that doesn't compete with GE, you might consider getting its help in service-enabling and analyzing your big data. GE Intelligent Platforms develops and sells industrial analytics software to customers both inside and outside of the company, and its area of deepest expertise is industrial production and product performance. -- Doug Henschen
