The dashboard module in MataInvetive’s arsenal is your single stop solutions for all the activities on your shop floor that are linked to Mata’s AI. It shows the machine/labor hours + projected hours required to complete assigned jobs per day, per week, per month and per year. It also shows the technicians that worked the most number of hours in the current week along with the workers that can be assigned some job as they had more idle time in the current week. This helps the shop floor manager to identify and distribute work to all the technicians and machines diligently maintaining equal work distribution throughout. We have also made advancements and now show the top three on-time factors in the current week. On-time factors are basically the best activities that met the deadline (probably, were completed before the deadline) and helped increasing profitability to the maximum. For example, the best performing factor can be a ‘Part number’, which means that the part number was manufactured/shipped on or before the desired due date and that helped in increased profitability.
These parameters give you an idea of what is happening on the shop floor and helps identify areas which can be improved. The parameters depend on the input from the shop floor ERP systems which are fed into MATA’s AI model that shows trends and features of what can be done to increase profitability.
The dashboard is further configured to show the machines and their daily or weekly working with different parameter. It also shows which machines on the shop floor are active and which are not active yet, the job number on which the machines are working currently, and how ‘used’ the machine is. The ‘usage’ parameter helps understand how should the load on the shop floor be distributed so that there is minimum wear and tear. Since, MATA’s AI is connected to the company’s ERP software, the dashboard also shows individual machine’s production hours + Projected hours. One more great feature of this dashboard is that it shows how long ago was the machine active so that the shop floor manager knows if they need to assign or re-allocate some job to a machine which is free, hence reducing delays and maximizing profits.
Different Views of Dashboard
There are different types in which you can view the machines on the shop floor. This is to provide an ease of understanding the equipment that is currently operating on the shop floor. To change the time frame displayed for each machine, you can use the ‘daily’, ‘weekly’ toggle. This will help you view the number of hours the machine is active or running on a daily basis or on a weekly basis.
The grid view gives an overview with pictures of the actual machines with an indication of green color if they are running and yellow if they are not running which is basically the production status.
The row view displays the machines in a tabular row-columns format that helps you identify which jobs are scheduled on which machines for the upcoming days in the week. It will also show you the activity status of the machine, i.e.- when was the machine last active and if the machine is running, then it will display the number of hours for how long it has been running.
The map view shows the machines and how long have they been running for the specified job numbers. The yellow color depicts the jobs that currently in progress and not been completed as of now. The green color depicts the jobs that are nearing completion and black color depicts the jobs that are yet to be started. The percentages in the boxes depict the percentage job completion by the machines and the top numbers depict the machine ids with their names.
If you open a machine box, it will show the operation status graph with the number of hours the machine has been running per day along with the percentage of job that is completed in the pie chart.
Data Is Measured Relative to 2000 hours Yearly, 70 hours Weekly, 14 hours Daily. This data can be viewed in a tabular form according to factors affecting it like ‘Job Number’, ‘Part Number’, ‘Production Status’, ‘Cycle Time’, ‘Work Station’, ‘Scheduled Start’, ‘Scheduled End’, ‘Due Date’, ‘Total Quantity’, ‘ Quantity Left’, ‘Quantity Made’, ‘Scanned Start’, ‘Scanned Finish’. These factors show when the job assigned is completed, the start date/time, end date/time, Quantity of parts to be made and completed and much more! The entries in the table can be displayed daily, weekly and monthly. We can also toggle between the status of the job – finished, started, yet started, delayed, on-time, and unscheduled. You can search the entries by Job Number and Part number. All the data is synced with the integrated ERP System.
