Overall Production Report

  • The report shows us the actual production output and the percentage of actual output on the plan set by the enterprise over different times. This is a helpful reporting system for enterprises to control costs and evaluate production activities of each workshop, thereby making a basis for making production and consumption decisions with an appropriate level of output, and at the same time helping to build norms, cost estimates for the next period.
  • Other indicators related to production activities revolve around the 5M model to identify enterprise resources and track indicators affecting production capacity. From there, businesses have appropriate strategies to improve production and business lines.
