Business Intelligence for the Manufacturing Industry based on QlikView

The Challenge of Industrial Change in the Manufacturing Industry

Production and manufacturing companies are currently facing a transition period, which some experts are calling a "new industrial revolution". The triggers include changing technologies. IT and the manufacturing world are merging more strongly. For example, manufacturing processes are being revolutionised by new methods such as additive manufacturing. Customer expectations are rising, both in terms of price and also quality and service components.

New value networks are emerging, in which specialist companies are becoming suppliers. Environmental issues are playing an increasingly important role. Production is being relocated back from developing and emerging countries. New industrial countries and clusters are developing. Accordingly, optimisation potential and new revenue opportunities need to be realised in order to be able to survive in an increasingly global competitive environment. Companies need to identify and eliminate weaknesses early on. In order to minimise risks along the supply chain, the consequences of certain decisions need to be tested in different scenarios to a much greater extent. One example is analysis of manufacturing sequences in order to be able to define more efficient concepts for production planning and material flow.

The basic requirement is the flexible and easy availability of management-relevant information.  This requires that accurate data is collected and analysed. However, this is distributed and complex and the underlying environment is extremely heterogeneous. In addition to production orders, for example, data from Time & Attendance (for staff productivity), quality assurance (for evaluating the Overall Equipment Efficiency) or secondary shop-floor systems, such as MES (for reviews of Overall Equipment Efficiency), have to be consolidated.

Our intelligent software solutions based on QlikView allow even large, complex data from the most varied sources to be linked and analysed together. Users in specialist departments are provided with valuable information for strategic decision-making. Reports can be automated and therefore created in a time-saving manner.  And this can be done in an uncomplicated way without the need for costly IT support.
