Manufacturing Dashboard Software

Get the big picture.

ShopVue's Dashboard add-on provides quick, high-level access to key metrics on supervisor PCs or large displays on the factory floor. Designed to be highly configurable, the Dashboard allows different users to view the data they need. Creating Dashboard displays is equivalent to creating custom reports. Dashboards update in real time and can be set to cycle through multiple reports like airport flight status displays. Examples of Dashboards include:

  • A 60” screen in the Production Control Room might show all of a factory’s bottleneck machines: their current state – up or down – and how efficiently they are running.
  • A 42” screen in the CNC Department, mounted on a wall visible to all operators and leads, might show the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of each machine, a key metric for monitoring how well the machine is performing.
  • A manager’s personal PC might show key data about the small subset of machines and employees he is interested in monitoring.

This diagram shows the OEE for three critical machines. The manager can quickly see the 500 Ton machine has a quality problem. It’s OEE has dropped into the red zone.


Auto Refresh

Information is automatically updated based on the interval you specify (default = 1 min).

Auto Cycle

Dashboards can cycle through multiple reports on a desired interval. 

Highly Configurable

As the ShopVue administrator, you can add to the library of widgets by extending the core ones or building your own. You select fields from the database and the controls by which you want them displayed. Specifying properties of the control, e.g., font, background color and color ranges on gauges, gives you the exact look you need.

Centralized Configuration and Distribution

Configuration changes and enhancements are automatically pushed out to the Dashboard clients.

Flexible Layout and Sizing

Widgets can be arranged and sized to make the display more intuitive. Machines can be arranged as they actually appear on the floor. Large machines can take up more of the display than smaller machines.

Three Out-of-Box Widgets

  • Machine Status focuses on state and current part running.
  • Machine OEE focuses on OEE.
  • Employee Status focuses on employee presence.

Custom Data

You can create custom-stored procedures to fetch and calculate data not directly available from the Object Model.

Data Perspective Catalog

A packaged collection of key manufacturing data items is available for the Dashboard and Metric Detail Reports by simply navigating the ShopVue Data Object Model. Each perspective is available for different time ranges such as past 24 hours or past 8 hours.  Perspectives summarize information for Machines, Work Centers, or Employees. Data items available in the perspectives include:
