Production Manager Reports

Are you a Production Manager with inventory issues, less people and older machines, but higher production targets?

Power BI is for production managers who need to increase their production overall effectiveness.

Production Managers use Power BI reports to monitor the performance of manufacturing operations with regard to timely execution, quality, and costs. The reports use transactional data from your existing software systems (HR, MRP, ERP etc) and your production machinery, to provide both an aggregate view of company-wide production metrics and a breakdown of metrics by product and inputs.

Power BI reporting and dashboard’s highlights your organisation’s ability to complete production on time and in full. Future performance is projected and modelled based on your production plans, labour availability, inventory costs and machine usage.

Comprehensive reports provide detailed insights into product defects that are caused by production, and also the defect rates for resources and operations. Managers can drill down through scrape codes to find the root cause.

Power BI also lets you analyse production variances. Production variances are calculated as the difference between estimated and realised. Production variances are calculated when production orders or batch orders reach an agreed end point.

Some of the metrics in Power BI
Power BI gives the production manager a set of report pages. Each page consists of a set of metrics that are visualised as charts, tiles, and tables.
