Plastic Moulding Manufacturer

Leverages Business Intelligence To Optimize Operations

Introduction

App Maisters was approached by a privately held manufacturer of Plastic Moulding that supplies to the auto industry. They have business presence in approximately 15 countries.

Problem Statement

The organization currently uses Business Objects to meet their current reporting needs. The organization does not have any ERP in place. They get data from multiple operational systems. They built a warehouse few years back which they wish to utilize.

They wanted to create a small application which would allow everyone in the organization to see what tool can help meet their business needs which was not being met by Business Objects. Most of the executives were viewing the reports using touchscreens on tablets. So they wanted to understand how the reports can be used without using a mouse. They also wanted to leverage the KPI visualization power of Business Intelligence as the whole organization was moving towards defining KPIs across all their functions.

Approach

Given the problem, App Maisters identified 3 KPIs and additional visualization for the KPIs to showcase the functioning of the Business Intelligence tool.

The KPIs were Revenue, Margin & Scrap. Each one of them had other attributes like customer, plant, department etc.

App Maisters created 2-3 samples for key matrices and worked collaboratively with the client to understand their preference regarding graph placement, font, colors etc. Being a global organization, it was very important that the graph conveyed the right information across different cultures and languages.

Conclusion

Business Intelligence projects, if just seen as tool to create visuals, tend to lose interest and do not add much value, if root cause analysis and its solutioning is not carried out.

App Maisters can help in selling the concept of data visualization to the organization by conducting some POCs.
