The tool is used by supervisors at all levels (including foremen) during meetings, among others. In addition to the general overview of whether an indicator is being met or not, it is also possible to display a more detailed look of the partial indicators of each production section. Another thing dCockpit can do is to filter time slots. “The fact that this is a standardised report is a major advantage. It looks similar in all departments, and everyone has the same source of information. Paper is saved as well, as we don’t have to print all kinds of documents and so on”, explains Pavel Vorlík from PKM – EA 211 Engines.
The key indicators that dCockpit displays include the number of pieces produced per shift, the number of employees, their productivity, the overall efficiency of the equipment and the number of accidents recorded. “Of course, you can access dCockpit from a desktop, but you can also display it on mobile devices like any other Power BI reports. It can be easily published in MS Teams and shared freely there with your co-workers. We are currently working on connecting the source data from the primary systems for the Power BI report to automate the work as much as possible”, says Vorlík. Štěpán Vorlíček
