This Tableau Accelerator allows you to reduce the impact of scraps on your production line. It shows production scraps along two perspectives:

  • Management Perspective: Who should take corrective actions?

    • by Scrap Reason
    • by Material Category
    • by Material

Reduce overall production costs and improve productivity:

  • Identify top offenders

  • Assess impact of past actions

Answer key business questions
