Business Intelligence and Analytics Systems for Decision Support in the Manufacturing Industry

The project’s goal was to deploy Business Intelligence and Analytics Systems for decision support. We’ve helped a leading manufacturing company to enhance management efficiency by implementing an automated reporting system and Data Warehouse, which covered HR, operations, business, and sales processes.

THE CHALLENGE

Self-service decision making

Transactional databases and excel spreadsheets can no longer keep up with today’s demand for flexibility, smart reporting, and self-service options.

Improve inventory control

Track inventory usage across location and time, monitor inventory costs. Analyze information across multiple sources to set performance goals and create sophisticated profitability and financial models. Develop budgets that incorporate production, operation, sales, fulfillment, and financial indicators for optimal forecasting and planning.

Cost management

It allows in-depth cost analysis across multiple sources so that companies can track materials, manufacturing and production costs through multiple layers of information.

Analyzing and monitoring operational efficiency and identifying areas where they can streamline processes and procedures.

Inventory optimization

Make decisions based on real-time information about existing problems. Decision making can be a timely process because information and knowledge are widely distributed amongst business units.

Data management and data quality

Need for structuring, managing, and utilizing corporate data to meet quality requirements. To effectively manage large amounts of structured and unstructured data from various supply chain touchpoints such as distributors, suppliers, customers, and market insights.

OUR SOLUTION

Business Intelligence and Analytics Systems for Decision Support

We deployed and implemented Business Intelligence and analytics systems for decision support. We designed AI-powered Business Intelligence (BI) self-service solution with an enterprise data warehouse (DWH), where the business users could be self-sufficient in the development of dashboards and reports – in order to analyze relation between sales and customers. Developed Business Intelligence system supports marketing, operations, business, sales, and HR departments.

AI-powered algorithms to optimize inventory

NPI Application was developed to support the decision-making process of Non-Productive Inventory product batches in Distribution Centers.  It defines a workflow for possible user groups and decisions (actions). Actions can be either passing NPI items to a different group or a final decision execution on the given product batch. Decisions are made according to complex and volatile business rules so it is impossible to implement them explicitly in the application. There are separate decision-making processes – workflows for combinations of Region / Category / NPI level.

Integrated and cleaned data

Centralized Enterprise Data Warehouse with advanced parallel ETL process was deployed to manage and utilize the organization’s data and gain actionable insights to ensure regulatory compliance and improve business performance.

Analytical Executive Dashboards –

Business Intelligence and Analytics Systems for Decision Support

Analytical dashboards were developed to improve operational and management reporting. Any manufacturer has to focus on both external profit increase and internal cost reduction. Analyze information across multiple sources to set performance goals and create sophisticated profit and financial models. Develop budgets that incorporate production, operation, sales, fulfillment, and financial figures for optimal forecasting and planning.

BENEFITS

Human interaction and report creation time were reduced by implementing analytical cubes that provide the end-user with multiple analytical options. Visualization tools help to navigate through the data universe and analyze links between occurrences – all in an intuitive and user-friendly way.
