from analyzing shop floor data to operational excellence

operational excellence through detailed data analysis.

Operational excellence aims for a company-wide increase in effectiveness and efficiency. Processes and systems throughout the company should be continually optimized in order to reduce loss and waste. As a result, productivity and quality increase while costs decrease. Process management is an essential component of operational excellence in a company.

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.

quickly implement your own analysis requirements

Depending on your use case, Peakboard offers you a variety of interfaces that allow you to visualize data from a wide range of sources on your dashboard.

It’s easy with Peakboard Edge, for example. With Peakboard Edge, you can input or output the information you need directly from external devices such as switches, barcode scanners, photoelectric sensors, and signal lights – all without intervening in the system control.

To analyze the generated data, you simply save it centrally with Peakboard Hub and then evaluate it flexibly in Power BI.
