From analyzing shop floor data to operational excellence

What does operational excellence have to do with Peakboard?

Process management means that process data is analyzed for abnormalities and optimization potential in order to derive recommendations for action. In order to perform the analysis, the processes must first be transparent.

With Peakboard, you not only make your current processes visible in real-time and therefore optimizable. You can also write your shop floor process data in Peakboard Hub as a central database for further analysis, no matter whether it is collected manually via production data acquisition or automatically via PLC or MQTT.

To analyze your persistently stored shop floor data, you can use the business intelligence tool Power BI from Microsoft which you easily set up on the existing database in Peakboard Hub.

In conjunction with MS Power BI, Peakboard gives you the ability to capture, store, and evaluate your shop floor data professionally and easily. After all, transparency about your shop floor data is what ensures operational excellence in your company.
