Shop-Floor & Management Dashboards
Shop floor dashboards provide real-time data visibility
Integreater’s data-driven dashboard tool provides real-time visibility to monitor and understand process-specific performance. Its flexible design means that it can be configured to measure whatever data is most important to each department. Including, “drill down” functions that provide detailed analysis.
Using real-time data to inform better decisions and collaboration
With our shop floor dashboards in place, your production data will be presented in meaningful and visual formats. It will blend data from many sources to provide a complete view.

“Our colleagues in production are now able to interpret the data on the shop-floor, that’s presented to them in real-time, and actually make a difference to the process and the bottom line.”
David McCarthy, Production Systems Manager, Faccenda Foods
As Rob Stephens, SI’s CEO explained, “For the food processing industry, using data effectively is all about how you can make production process changes that have a positive outcome on margins. With SI’s dashboards in place, businesses can make real-time decisions on a whole range of variables, increasing production and yield, whilst reducing giveaway.

“At every point in the food production process, data can be captured from manual inputs to handheld devices and connected equipment. By seeing live data in a simple dashboard style feed on the production line, in the office or both, operators can monitor KPIs and timely decisions can be made to react to trends.”
Real-time data insight to drive decision making
Through SI’s tailored dashboard data, real-time decisions can be made to improve production. Presented through a combination of charts, gauges, maps and grids, real-time data will help you make the best business decisions. For example:
- Know when to adjust equipment to improve throughput
- Implement manual processes to reduce giveaway
- Open new lines to increase throughput.
This is particularly important when processing produces that are same day delivery, where forecasting sets out the day, but items are only confirmed after shifts have begun.

Fulfilling orders really is the golden rule in food processing, especially when you are dealing with large customers. Dashboards in place, on the shop-floor, production managers can make decisions about changing/opening lines at the touch of a button.
At SI, we’re aware this learning and advanced capabilities of automated software is now playing a key role. Used in transitions from end of the day or shift reporting, to real-time data-driven action, through use of live dashboards.
If you’re looking to enhance your food manufacturing real-time control, dashboards are a great way to visibility productivity and throughput on the shop floor.
