Utilization dashboards are considered operational analysis tools and are used by Plant and Production Managers to monitor capacity and utilization metrics. This dashboard is helpful when it comes to improve productivity, reduce production cost and optimize waiting time between stages.
|Goals||Questions to ask||Dashboard views|
|To track production capacity||Production Volume, Capacity, %Utilization, Capacity Utilization by Line, Capacity Utilization by Shift|
|To track the mean time between failures||MTBF, MTBF by Line|
|To track product lifecycle|
How has cycle time changed over time?
|Cycle Time, Cycle Time by Month|
Actual production volume
Machine Downtime Rate:
MTBF – Mean Time Between Failures: Mean Time Between Failures
The time for a product lifecycle
The report provides two important indicators which is capacity utilization and time utilization:
- Capacity utilization: To optimize the production activities of machines with low effective capacity to improve the production capacity of enterprises. Optimizing the production activities of machines with low effective capacity to improve the production capacity of enterprises.
- Time utilization: To minimize waiting time between stages, as well as preparation time for the process and time to change models or product specifications. Enterprises can then make appropriate plans to optimize production time and reduce the amount of defective products in production line.
