The KPI Monitor provides a quick overview of the project progress and various planning performance indicators.
- Scenario Progress: Shows scenario start and a graphical representation of the scenario progress based on the number of planned parts in relation to the total number of parts.
- Product key figures: Based on the production data, shows the output per day, the cycle time, the number of provision requirements, the start and end dates of the production, and the number of production days. In addition, the number of part families and parts (number of entries in the LMG) from the LMG are displayed.
- Costs: Shows the maximum investment costs and the operating costs for the selected simulation day from submodule cost evaluation
- Simulation parameters: Shows the currently in submodule transport simulation stored setting for all simulation parameters (transport calculation strategy, pathfinding strategy, calculation strategy, and simulation tolerance).
- Stocks: Shows the line stocks separately by load units and loading carriers. These line stocks are calculated as follows:
Reorder quantitiy + rounded value of (reorder level / parts per LC / LU) In addition, the average line stock per hour, separated by load units and loading carriers, is shown here. The average line stocks are calculated as follows:
(Reorder quantitiy + reorder level unrounded) / (LC / LU per day / net working time of production)
Calculation of reorder level unrounded: reorder level in parts / parts per LC or LU
The calculation is made for each valid supply chain and concerns the last stage in each supply chain. The sum of all these calculations must then be divided by the number of supply chains.
- Logistic Processes key figures: Shows an overview of all defined SVKs and a progress bar for each SVK. The progress of the bar is calculated from the ratio of the planned parts to the total number of assigned parts. A part is considered planned when the supply chain of the part is defined.
The number of parts assigned to each Standard Supply Chain can be found in this view if the Standard Supply Chains are assigned to the parts via the decision tree. The number of parts for the Standard Supply Chain can be found in the submodules Edit Standard Process Chain, Assign Parts to SVKs and Supply Chain Editor. The information about the planning status of an SVK is obtained by dividing the already planned parts (green tick in the supply chains) by the number of all parts assigned to this SVK.
There are also the following 4 overviews:
1, Overview of the volumes per day and per product for all default supply chains which have supply chains.
2. Overview of throughput of loading carriers and load units for each SVK
3. Overview of the different types of workers and their process times for each SVK (from submodule Manpower)
4. Overview of the different types of means of transport and their process times for each SVK
- Shift plan: Displays the shift plan defined in the production data, as well as the number of shifts and the net working time.
- Routes: Gives an overview of the existing routes divided into cycled/not cycled routes, as well as LC-, LU-routes (routes that either only transport loading carriers or only load units) and mixed routes.
There is also an overview of all routes, which shows their lengths, number of assigned parts and the transported load carriers and/or load units per day.
- Transport groups: Shows the number of existing transport groups in group building
- Manpower: Shows the number of variable and manually added workers required in the scenario. The process times and the process times per product are also displayed. There is an overview of all worker types (similar to the worker type evaluation in Manpower Analysis), their number, utilization, and process and distribution time.
- Resource key figures: Shows the maximum and average resource requirements of tractors, AGVs and forklifts as well as the number of logistics employees.
The values for the maximum number and the average for tuggers and direct means of transport ( forklift and AGV) are taken from the Report view in the transport simulation. The demand for employees is calculated in the Personnel Evaluation submodule. The value of employees required for all areas is displayed here. This corresponds to the worker requirement at Hall level.
- Layout key figures: Shows the sum in m² of all logistics areas, the sum in m² of occupied areas and the capacity utilization in relation to the ratio of occupied area to total area.
You can read about the calculation of the occupancy of material areas here. The capacity load is calculated by dividing the occupied material area by the total area requirement.
There is also a layout structure overview, which shows the area size, the occupied and available area, the area per product, the area load and the rack storing space for each level.
- General key figures: Shows the loading units and loading carriers, the required area and the area factor for the product.
- Note: Shows the stored comment.
The "Configure" button can be used to hide individual key figures if they are not to be displayed in the KPI monitor. However, the setting here only affects the KPI monitor and not the project comparison in the project view.
The button "Save KPI" saves the KPI's in an Excel in order to compare them.
