Background

Reynaers Aluminum tracked deadlines and results in oversaturated Excel files. This product was not sufficient to control and correct the time from the date of creation to the date of shipment a product to the customer. In addition, it was necessary to control and plan the workload of each production site. Excel was also used to summarize corporate results and it complicated and slowed down many processes. Additional task was to promptly prepare reports on the plan-fact of the previous and future periods.

Microsoft Power BI became the most appropriate solution that, unlike Excel, could provide a clear and simple access to all important information.
Awara IT consultants prepared a general corporate report, and a report for colouring and assembling stages. Report data was collected from various Excel files in accordance to specified internal logic.
