In the past ‘few’ years, everybody has been building so-called dashboards. Be it in the form of web applications, database reports or graphs created in Excel sheets, dashboards showing the progress of key performance indicators (KPIs) have been created in every organization. In factories, people keep track of production quantities, wasted materials, unscheduled downtime, utilization of key equipment and many more data items, over shorter or longer periods.
