Active Dashboards Software
SI’s Active Dashboards interpret key information, in a graphical and engaging way, that will benefit every food manufacturing operational area. For instance, the moment something happens within intake, sales, despatch or production, that data will be visualised in real time on the dashboard.
Through the development of our real-time Active Dashboards, supported by automated reports and audit ready data capture, we’re delivering deliver information that allows individuals and teams to make profitable ‘in-the-moment’ decisions.
This knowledge-led approach shines a light on all areas of the business, driving informed and positive decision making, which in-turn makes excellence possible.
With SI’s Active Dashboards installed at the end of lines on the factory floor, production managers can immediately determine:
Performance: plan vs. actual performance;
The real-time production rates;
Throughput & productivity by line. Today’s products so far (including current product live), vs. weighted targets;
Packs per minute & packs per labour hour and by line;
Yield & give away performance, presented by percentage or by cost for each production run;
If there are any line problems, such as poor performance from one of the machines, such as auto OCMs;
OEE & Down time performance percentage, including minutes stopped on each line or run;
Failure modes for any reworks, split by reason;
How best to make informed decisions, based on real-time information. For instance:
– Move production to another line.
– Stop production for a maintenance check.
– Change the product mix.
By collaborating with managers and end-users, we work with food processors to develop Active Dashboards for them that display key information proven to:
- improve productivity
- enhance production capabilities
- deliver real-time insights that will empower operational staff.
