Four steps to achieve up-to-the-minute business intelligence, and more
1. Data Standardization: To increase the value of the reports, Teranalytics created a unified, granular coding system to deliver more precise production information, new operational metrics to describe production line performance, and business rules to manage current and future products.
2. Data Collection: To reduce information latency and improve accuracy, the Team created a new tool that enables the supervisors to easily enter production line information directly into the Data Server from their PCs as they collect it.
3. Data Storage: To enable real-time data access for production line managers and senior management, as well as ensure data security, the Data Server consolidates the information into the Data Warehouse, ready for immediate analysis.
4. Business Intelligence: Teranalytics integrated the new Data Warehouse with PowerBI to provide up-to-the-minute visualized information tuned to role-specific needs. Supervisors are able to identify and remediate problems immediately and avoid unnecessary line changes; senior management has immediate, clear visibility to actionable insights.
