Continuous and real-time reporting on quality initiatives is a dream for every firm. Whether you are an auto parts manufacturer measuring production quality, or a broadband provider tracking quality of service, quick and accurate reporting is paramount. Visualizing and analyzing your operational data will help you catch issues before they spiral out of control, find opportunities for improvement in process and supply chain, and identify costly waste within your organization. The following features will help you support these important initiatives across your organization.
TrackVia Pareto Charts
You might not know Vilfredo Pareto, but he is about to be your new best friend. Pareto is best known for his contributions to the field of economics. But he will matter to you because he created an awesome way to visualize the 80/20 Rule, which was aptly named the Pareto Chart. The 80/20 rule says that 80% of effects come from 20% of causes. This can be applied to manufacturing (80% of failures come from 20% of fault codes) or service organizations (80% of customer complaints come from 20% of issues).
The visualization below is powerful, tells a great story and can be interpreted at a glance. Quality managers and engineers alike can use this chart to quickly identify their problem areas, and then drill into segments to dive deep and determine root causes. In the case below, we see that just two fault codes are the cause of 70% of failures! TrackVia’s Pareto tool, coupled with scheduled reporting and our mobile apps, support quality management initiatives that work for anyone, anytime, anywhere.
TrackVia Color Formatting
Data visualizations, specifically charts, have many purposes. They can highlight specific information, support/discredit a hypothesis, tell a story, and even call people to action. Delivering a visualization to the right people, at the right time, for the right purpose requires some serious horsepower and flexibility.
Consistent formatting across your visualizations helps a firm tell a consistent story to stakeholders. In the case of our latest feature, color formatting, the aesthetics of your visualizations can be maintained across all reports guaranteeing that the same information is reaching everyone in the same format.
Companies in today’s economy must use the best data management and software tools available in order to stay competitive. This often times lends itself to many disparate systems within an organization. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as you can use data across the systems to tell the same story. Using TrackVia’s color formatting, critical reports can be configured in seconds to match reports coming from other systems, which are often times inflexible and difficult to change.
