Factory Business Intelligence
Modern Data Reporting
How do you report production and maintenance data? With Excel or Power BI? How would you like to change your current way of reporting?
Get started with Business Intelligence and extract value from this easy-to-use modern reporting.
Factory Business Intelligence (FBI) is not only about producing graphs based on data stored in your database.
FBI structures data and creates connections among them in such a way that they are easy to understand. When going through reports you can then easily find information that will help you make decisions.
Our team of BI analysts has been implementing Business Intelligence in production companies for over 20 years. Would you like to draw on our experience?
With the so-called OLAP cube, placed between your database and dashboards, we will help you discover connections among data that you would never think of.
We will teach you how develop more dashboards by yourselves without having to rely on us.
If people in your company use different data sources to create their reports, you may be presented contradictory graphs in your meetings. In addition, your colleagues rely on different software tools for displaying reports, including Excel, PowerPoint and Power BI, as well as visualisations in SCADA, ERP and maintenance systems.
This reporting is very time-consuming for many people, and not even reporting tools can obtain data fast enough. What is more, this way you are not able to connect some data together and get the necessary information.
Then comes the time when you realise that this kind of reporting is no longer sufficient for you.
We take data from many different sources (e.g. PLCs, ERP, Excel, etc.) and connect them to a single robust data warehouse where these data are validated. This guarantees that every user obtains the same data. A database like this allows for very fast Power BI reporting.
Above this database we create the so-called OLAP cube, which enables you to structure the data appropriately and make them ready for the Power BI reporting tool so that it can deliver connections among them fast and reliably.
What will your new way of reporting in meetings look like?

If you would like to try it yourself, explore our online demo. For more examples of reports presenting various production and maintenance data, click on the More Reports button.
Try reporting your company's data with Power BI. Your first pilot project will allow you to obtain some practical experience and generate your first reports.
Some of the data that we can process for you may include:
Data collected from one of your data sources (e.g. a database or a PLC) will be integrated into Microsoft Power BI.
If you do not collect data yet, we will be happy to advise you on how to go about it. The easiest way to make your machine data available is through the KEPServerEX and OPC Router platforms.
In Microsoft Power BI, you will then see all the integrated data (i.e. historical data) on a user-friendly dashboard. The dashboard will include static views as well as interactive graphs that will enable you to drill down into your data.
The solution will be ready for you to use within a few days, as we have the data structure for the most frequent and most useful dashboards for manufacturing companies pre-prepared.
To get an idea of how a solution like this works, explore our demo dashboards. You can also read our case study on how we implemented our FBI in the company Kiekert.
