Performance charts are the ‘control tower’ of a distribution network. They are used to monitor logistics activity in a global and detailed manner.
The KPI Cockpit provides the ability to accurately define and then measure your Key Performance indicators. The KPI Cockpit is supplied with an extensive array of pre-defined best practice indicators over three main fields;
- Service level
Key Performance Indicators (KPI) can be set for both strategic and tactical performance measurement.
Tactical KPI allow adjustment of daily operations with maximum responsiveness. These real time KPI are often accompanied by alerts.
For example: launching the redeployment of tasks to prepare if one is experiencing an overload from what has been handled since starting at that post that day.
KPIs Cockpit can monitor the activity of each logistical process: quantity actually received, change in stock status, shipments made…. In each instance, it is possible to see the level of occupation per location or even the general history of each movement.
The logistics organiser knows if the results are in line with the objectives.
The strategic control KPI concern the analysis of service levels and productivity. They identify areas for organisational and structural improvement in the warehouse and also developments in set up or the use of new features in WMS.
These KPI are often normative: they can be compared either against a target of productivity, or simply compared to the standard ratios recognised for this job, the publication of KPI can be positioned in the dynamic of permanent improvement.
The analysis of the evolution of indicators of strategic management over time, for example, weekly or monthly averages, facilitates the choice of objectives and designs ways to implement then.
