A global leader in footwear manufacturing concern needs an instant visibility of the chemicals used in the manufacturing of its entire footwear products around the world. This paves the way for an interactive visual analysis and reporting framework, which can be discussed among manifold teams spread worldwide, to gain insights and build rapid decisions.
Since separate reports had to be prepared manually for diverse groups, the analysis time was significantly increased which results in delayed production decisions. It took almost 15 days to prepare a report, thereby slowdowns the overall production performance.
The reports were manually prepared for every user group using unprocessed data which were presented in basic, numerical terms. This made the reports extremely elusive and tricky to understand.
Sharing information with large groups within the organization is a challenge. A safe and sound reporting platform is required to monitor access and ensure protection of the information being used. Barely a few users could access the analytics reports. Thus, a reporting platform was obligatory to enable accessibility and sharing of the advanced analytics with end-users.
Ultimately, the static workbooks and spreadsheets, lacks secure access to analytics content, and problems of the current reporting practices led to delayed production decisions.
