The idea of a dashboard is simple. When you start up a dashboard, the first thing you need to see is your overall maintenance performance represented by a fixed number of key performance indicators like in example above. Each KPI then shows the performance of one of the competences in a maintenance organization: Cost Control, Asset Utilization, SHE Management, Reliability Engineering, Planning & Preparation, Maintenance Execution, MRO Supply Chain Management, Service Supply Chain Management, Skill & Tool Management and Equipment Knowledge Management.
Using the out of the box Cognos functionality you can conditionally format a dashboard. Using the the conditional colour, a KPI tells you if your performance meets your target. You should consider setting targets per time period and for each location in your Maximo system. KPIs that deviate from your target are then displayed in red and are subject for further analysis. By using colours, management will be stimulated to focus on areas that need improvement. Prioritize on things that create the greatest economic added value.
Drill down analysis
Using Cognos drill down/drill through functionality you can make your application even more powerfull. It will help you to explain why certain KPIs deviate from target. Which assets, planner group, reliability engineer, maintenance team, contractor and/or stores are responsible for the measured underperformance? By clicking on a KPI, you will be able to enter a preconfigured dashboard.
Besides drilling down data, it is also possible to roll up data.This way you can create a benchmarking module where the KPIs of an asset can be compared against KPIs of similar assets from the same organization. It is even possible to group assets into a division and perform a benchmark analysis between different divisions of an organization. These kinds of analyses are especially useful in multi site maintenance organizations.
