Hello all,

Hope you are doing well ?

I work at a division level and me and my team struggle each month to consolidate the KPI send by our partners. Way too many indicators, objectives, datas...

How do you manage your reporting ? In Excel ? Using a data base ? Maybe another software ?

Hope to read you all soon,

You have a few questions in this post but a couple thoughts. First is there an opportunity to reduce the indicators, objectives...are they being used and driving the culture you are looking for. The second part as far as tools you have a variety of options. Since the information is probably in different forms (databases, excel, ERP...) the only way to get them onto on communication platform would be a linked reporting database. I have seen other due fancy things with Excel but that has reliability risk. One software you could check out that offers data collection and can link to other databases is Thrive (leantech.com). It offers roll-up reporting across multiple sites.

This is a good opportunity to use your 5S training for what it was really designed for. When you say "Way too many indicators..." it is clear that there is a "Sort" opportunity. Set-In-Order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain as needed. 5S is not only for cleaning the production floor.

In terms of how to manage reporting? Well, first define the purpose of all of those reports and how are they being used. Agree with Jamie in the risks and advantages of certain methods but first you have to really understand what is happening with that information. Form follows Function.
