IBCS® Certified Consultant
Simone Verza has successfully completed the IBCS® certification for successful design of reports and presentations at the HICHERT+FAISST IBCS Institute in January 2022.
The Reports represented here are related the performance of a manufacturing plant.
The first report is about the general analysis of the plant’s KPIs. In its building there were two main challenges with respect to IBCS:
- give the report a consistent and readable structure (grouping the KPIs on the basis of their calculation when possible)
- finding a solution for the representation of KPIs variances with different units of measurement (pieces, percentages, ratios, hours, etc.).
The second report, on the other hand, analyzes in detail the most important KPI, OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), breaking it down through the use of a tree, that facilitates understanding of the calculation formula.
Both reports have been realized with MS Excel and with the help of Zebra BI add-in.
Production KPIs Report This report, in addition to showing production KPIs against Budget and Flexible Budget, also highlights economic variances (including comments and action plan).
OEE KPIs Tree This KPI is calculated by multiplying Uptime, Performance and Yield.
