Manufacturers and other types of companies deal with tightly controlled processes in their facilities.
Keeping an eye on production or services can be difficult using just excel spreadsheets and pivot tables.
Power BI gives us a great way to not just visualize the manufacturing floor map but add data to it directly.
You will be able to custom define various icons to represent production stations or machinery.
The data then gets fed to these icons to display in different colors and configurable logic based on your business needs.
This allows your team to at a glance view the status of a particular unit, area, or machinery with the data that is most relevant.
This blog post is meant to demonstrate a proof of concept for how this can be done.
