Visualize Manufacturers' Data with New .NET Dashboards



"In today's fast-moving, just-in-time manufacturing markets, quick access to production data is critical to meeting customer demands. With Global Shop Solutions new manufacturing dashboards, manufacturers have a choice to make smarter business decisions by visualizing their data anywhere on the shop floor and throughout the business," said a company spokesperson.

Global Shop Solutions has created more than a dozen dashboards that organize and display data ranging from open sales and work orders to shipping schedules, purchasing, bill of materials status and even vendor performance. Built on Microsoft's .NET platform, the dashboards are designed to a new level of customization, allowing users to make changes right on the screen without having to change the underlying code.

"Our ERP software has always been known for its superb visibility of data," said Global Shop Solutions CEO Dusty Alexander, "and now we have taken that one step further. The result is our suite of dashboards that enables manufacturers to put the exact data they want on display anywhere in their business at any time."

Global Shop Solutions offers the interactive dashboards to its customers at no additional cost. ERP software users simply download the dashboards from a secure web portal and install in a matter of minutes. Standard features include:

  • Various tables for customized views
  • Drag columns to rearrange, group and sort
  • Right-click a column to apply a filter or hide
  • Expandable graphs by a simple double-click
  • One-click export to Excel
  • Drill into standard Global Shop Solutions transactions
  • Color coded for ease of use
  • Save column settings and selections.

The dashboards also offer a refresh feature that keep the data as live as possible and include the ability to drill into more detail on work orders, inventory or whatever data the user needs to access.

According to Global Shop Solutions Custom Development Manager Ryan Young, customers are displaying the dashboards on TV monitors on the shop floor, shipping department and other areas throughout the business.

"As an example, the production department might utilize an open job dashboard to monitor WIP and job status," Young said. "At the same time, a shipping dashboard might be displayed by the dock so personnel can see what needs to get out the door. Our customers are using dashboards in certain instances to replace a printed report. Instead of having to run a menu item, select and print the report, they have live, interactive data on the screen at all times."
