Performance Monitoring & Collaborative Improvement

Industry Solution


Make decisions based on actual data

Production managers are under pressure to optimize the effectiveness and efficiency of their operations. However, this task is often difficult due to inconsistent data from different sources, which is often prepared and collected manually. Also, knowledge often gets lost since it is not documented in one place accessible to all stakeholders.

Our solution allows production managers to consistantly collect production data, calculate and visualize critical KPIs and create notifications if performance goes out of bounds.

If problems occur, the solutions supports a structured digital problem solving process and documents issues and their solutions such that others experiencing the same problem can leverage this exising knowledge.

We have a solution

Performance Monitoring & Collaborative Improvement provides the foundation for boosting your efficiency.



Increase in operational efficiency at a brewery

  • Calculate KPIs based on a consistant set of data to understand how well your operations are performing
  • Easily create dashboard to visualize your data and KPIs to draw conclusions
  • Bring data from geographically distributed data sources together in one place for benchmakring and best practice identification
  • Define criteria for receiving alarms on desktop and mobile devices, so you know immediately if something is not working as planned
  • Solve issues along a structured path utilizing the methods of Ishikawa and 5-Why
  • Document solved issues such that this information can be utilized by others should the same problem arise again
