Real Time Dashboard (RTD) provides Total Operations Visibility (TOV) in near real-time throughout an enterprise to support operational analysis and decision-making. The RTD can cover different industry sectors, such as General Manufacturing, Logistics, F&B, MRO, etc., and dashboard data contents and their logical grouping in RTD can be customized and tailor-made according to the industry sectors’ contexts and company’s needs.
RTD consists of two major levels of technology – Component-Based Dynamic Data Acquisition and Dispatching (CB-DDAD) and Component-Based Dynamic Data Visualization (CB-DDV). Company can benefit from adopting RTD in aspects of increased real-time operations visibility by 100%, increased productivity and efficiency by 20~30% and shortened the response time to unexpected events by 50%.

Real-Time Visibility of Key Performance Data via Web-based Visualization
Component-Based Dynamic Data Visualization (CB-DDV) technology enables modular data contents with hierarchical and categorized grouping to support focused vision of key performance data with highlighting of unexpected events.
RTD is web-based dashboard where each TV screen is a web page, which makes dashboard highly flexible in hierarchical layout. Figure 1 shows a RTD in three levels – Supply Chain & KPI, Enterprise and Shop Floor, for General Manufacturing in a 4 x 3 TV video wall.
Production Overall Status and Detail Tracking
RTD provides Production Tracking in overall and detailed level in near real time, enables production personnel to understand overall production status with the planned quantity vs. actual progress. If the backlog accumulate to certain threshold level, RTD immediately highlights those Work Orders (WOs) in a Watch List, which draw production manager’s attention and inform the person-in-charge to take action simultaneously.
The Production Tracking in detail level shows the current process that a WO reaches and other key info of the WO, such as WO completion %, the estimated completion time, etc.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and Trending
RTD provides real time visibility of an important KPI at Enterprise level – OEE in Overall and Breakdown level as well as with Trending plot for individual machine for different period as shown in Figure 3. The 2nd layer breakdown info for the three dimensions – Availability, Performance and Quality can also be obtained upon clicking that dimension against a specific machine.
Component-Based Dynamic Data Acquisition and Dispatching (CB-DDAD)
CB-DDAD is a backend engine that collects various data required by dashboard, control data flow to avoid congestion, aggregate and dispatch data according to refreshing frequency needs to DDV engine.
CB-DDAD collects data from various data sources through different interface modes, such as getting ERP, Corporate, 3rd-Party and MES system through Application Programming Interface (API) in standard communication protocols, getting static Excel/.CSV data through file interfacing mode.
