Your first pilot project – use your own data and try Factory BI

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.

You can try processing the following data:

In maintenance:

  • Alarm analysis
  • Machine condition monitoring
  • Energy consumption monitoring

In production:

  • Downtime analysis
  • Quality monitoring
  • OEE monitoring

How it works

Data collected from one of your data sources (e.g. a database or a PLC) will be transferred to Microsoft Power BI. If you do not collect data yet, we will be happy to advise you on how to go about that.

In Microsoft Power BI, within a few days you will then see all the data transferred (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. To get an idea of how this works, feel free to explore our demo dashboards.

    BI turns data into valuable information

    Our solution is not only based on the Microsoft Power BI program, but also on the customised OLAP cube. By selecting the data that really matters to you, it allows you to gain unprecedented insight into your company processes.

    BI will allow your manufacturing company to:

    • Understand big amounts of historical data.
    • Compare plans (yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily) to actual numbers (by providing a number or a percentage).
    • Monitor trends by comparing years, months or seasons (i.e. the same period in 2020, 2019 and 2018).
    • Drill down into data to view different levels of granularity.
    • Comply with its IT security policy, removing any obstacles to your work with company data.
