Production Dashboard is a management panel that graphically represents the status of each phase of the manufacturing process through using various reports, including charts, tables, spreadsheets, diagrams etc. It uses a number of performance metrics and ratios to measure process performance. The dashboard also shows information about current production orders, vehicle statuses, procurement needs, stocked inventory, repair plans, workforce performance etc.
The greatest feature of any production dashboard is that it provides the ability to manage and audit the manufacturing process through performance reports. Job foremen, team leaders, and other shop supervisory personnel can benefit from performance charts and tables that display labor metrics and manufacturing status for a given period. Factory workers, shop operators and technicians are provided with detailed statistics about their individual tasks and achievements.
Production dashboard is often used as a primary interface between shop workers and supervisors. The dashboard contains manufacturing performance data that highlights individual performance by separate shops, teams and workers. Managers can communicate with their subordinates and receive real-time alerting of under-performance or deviations from plans.
