Dashboard functions in MARIProject

SAP Business One has had distinctive functionalities for creating dashboards since version 9 at the latest. But also MARIProject, integrated project software based on SAP B1, has a lot to offer here in terms of creating a dashboard.

What is a dashboard

The term dashboard actually stands for "dashboard". In information technology, dashboards are graphical interfaces, i.e. a collection of different graphic elements that serve to display certain data or control applications.

Dashboards in Controlling

In the area of controlling, dashboards have their preferred areas of application. The function is to make different types of key figures and performance indicators (KPIs) transparent. Business decisions can then be derived on the basis of this data. Some possible applications:

  • Monitoring of key figures from the finance (e.g. Cash flow)
  • Comparison of target and actual values (e.g. turnover, contribution margin)
  • Display of warehouse key figures (e.g. running time and delivery range)
  • Production control (e.g. current utilisation and effectiveness of equipment)

Nature and advantages

Dashboards are created from upstream systems such as ERP, BI and new data stores. A key advantage of today's dashboard solutions is that users can manage their Interfaces can create themselves. Different graphic elements such as traffic lights, speedometers and graphs are often available.

Dashboards enable professionals of all kinds to monitor performance, create reports and set estimates and targets for future work.

This results in the following advantages

  • A visual representation of the performance, e.g. with charts and graphs
  • The ability to identify trends
  • A simple way to measure efficiency
  • The ability to create detailed reports with a single click
  • The ability to make more informed decisions
  • Complete overview of all systems, campaigns and actions
  • Rapid identification of data outliers and correlations

Dashboards in MARIProject

With MARIProject, it is possible to combine different key figures and analyses for a project in a project dashboard.

Similar to the SAP Business One cockpit, the key figures and analyses for the selected project are presented graphically. There are metrics such as "percentage of completion" or "Open receivables"and analyses such as "Recorded times per employee" or "Comparison of recorded and planned times" are possible.

In addition, in the project dashboard, it is possible to select the chart type, such as bar chart or line chart, for a specific period, e.g. "January to December 2018".
