Control Tower Design

Connect and monitor the performance of all your processes and buffers at a central control tower and achieve like-for-like performance comparisons.

Creating a central control panel for operations across many sites, processes and inventories is not a new concept. There are 4 issues that make this a challenge;

  1. the quality of data can vary from one site to another.
  2. the way that metrics are calculated is at the mercy of different interpretations for each site
  3. metrics (such as OEE) are difficult to relate to business outcomes
  4. solutions usually require a large, all-or-nothing, capital outlay

We have developed a method of supply chain performance monitoring and control tower design that overcomes all of these issues. 

The big data video below shows the conceptual framework behind our control tower solution.
