A few weeks ago, we released a massive update to our ShiftWorx platform. Alongside the update, we added enhanced customization capabilities for manufacturers to create their own custom views and dashboards.
Cut through the noise by drilling down to the metrics that matter most to your shop, and to your people. Regardless of title, anybody within your organization can have role-specific views that quickly communicate the data needed to drive continuous process improvement throughout your operation.
Custom dashboards offer various benefits, but for simplicity sake, we’ve narrowed it down to the top 4:
- Showing the Right Data to The Right People
- Viewing Data from Across Your Organization
- Improving Decision Making
- Quickly Identifying Issues
1. Showing the Right Data to the Right People
Dashboards provide an easy way of visualizing actionable, impactful insights into your process. Rather than a one-size-fits-all solution, custom dashboards empower you to:
- Create role-specific views for managers, supervisors, operators, team leads, etc.
- Display the data that’s most important to your users
Customize your solution in a way that best suits your organization and your role
By displaying metrics relevant to specific roles, employees within those roles can quickly and easily drill down to the data they need. Without the unnecessary complexity, manufacturers can react faster to issues on the shop floor while identifying areas of improvement within their control.
2. Viewing Data from Across Your Organization
You can also leverage custom dashboards to enhance operational visibility. Integrating your ShiftWorx solution with other systems, such as ERP, gives you all the metrics that matter most to you in one convenient location. In addition, by displaying ERP, MES, QEP or CRM data alongside production data, you get the full picture of what’s happening in your shop – with no blind spots!
3. Improving Decision Making
With intuitive, role-specific views providing real-time insight into your operation, managers and operators alike gain a 360° view of the processes that matter most in their organization. Deeper insight facilitates more informed and educated operational decisions while displaying relevant, actionable data to the individuals who can make a difference right away.
4. Quickly Identifying Issues
Every manufacturer is different, so it makes sense that their Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) would be as well. As opposed to their off-the-shelf counterparts, customizable dashboards give you the power to view the information you need to quickly identify production issues.
Create & display your own KPI’s that reflect:
- Machine Uptime/Downtime
- Production Performance
Experience the Benefits of Customization
In manufacturing, a few minutes of downtime can result in massive revenue losses for the shop. By giving the right people the right information as they need it, staff can respond faster and with more accuracy when addressing production issues on the floor.
