Once you have collected your Downtime Codes, you will have to view them in order to inform future business decisions. This article will go over how to use the Explore module to view your Downtime Data.
To open the Explore module, log into your Amper web app and select Explore from the bar on the left hand side of the page.
You will be presented with different categories within the Explore module. Press Downtime.
Before diving into your data, you must select the appropriate parameters based on the information you are looking for.
There are three main parameters to set before viewing your data:
- Date Range
- Grouping by Day or Week
In the example above, the user has chosen to view the Downtime Codes for all of their factory's machines from 03/03/2020 to 03/06/2020 and we would like to see the Downtime grouped by day.
Grouping Data by Attribute
Once you have your parameters set, it is time to start diving into the data. Just below the date selector you will find two buttons to select whether you want to view the Total or the Average length of the Downtime Periods for the specified attribute.
Below these button you will find three sets of graphs, each with a parameter for the graph in that section to be grouped by.
A powerful feature of the Amper Explore module is the ability to combine these groupings and filter data by selecting entries on the graphs. Lets look at an example with the parameters we specified earlier:
From the Date graph, we can see that one day has a higher amount of Downtime than the others. If someone is interested in seeing if one shift had a greater amount of downtime than the other, they can simply click on the date of interest and selecting Shift as the group by on our second level graph we have quick insight into our Downtime Amounts that day by shift.
You can use any combination of available groupings to fit your specific analytical needs.
