Daily operations reporting

data

Objective

With a relentless focus on productivity, cost drivers and cash flows, clients wish to monitor performance and provide feedback to individuals or teams on a daily basis. However, given the high frequency, this by default cannot be accomplished by "hand held" tools such as spreadsheets.

Developed tool

Our consultants have developed automated reporting tools on varying scales, typically using e-mail, MS Sharepoint or web pages as output channel. Examples include:

  • Operations departments in a major shipping company: Daily report detailing the most conspicuous changes on the previous working day, configurable by managers to deliver a personal view or team aggregate (or both). The core functionality was delivered in less than two weeks.
  • European postal incumbent: Daily calculation of distribution workload vs hours booked, measured individually (i.e. for each postman/postwoman in the country). The solution incorporates an advanced statistical algorithm to calculate workload as a function of e.g. number and type of products delivered, vehicle, distance, recipient type and route. This project took three months to deliver.
