SelfCheck specifically determined the company’s individual strengths and according to the findings from practice studies a large part of the production company has weaknesses no adequate performance measurement systems alarm clock (L) / Hurth, 11.04.2011 – the production intelligence Institute has published a practical help to optimize the key performance indicators (KPI) in production. It is aimed at production, quality and process owners in the company. The comprehensive and free guide looks at the relevant impact and effect factors of performance measurement systems and shows the future ways with high practical relevance.

Key figures are not a foreign word in the production management, however lacks often the necessary classification and consistency”, explained Jeannette Ewen, Managing Director of the PI Institute.

The Guide performance measurement systems can be ordered in the production: Analysis, problems, solutions”at the PI Institute by email via.
About the PI Institute that the PI Institute aims, scientific orientation and with complementary partners practical continues to explore the theme of production intelligence (PI), to develop solutions and implementation methods, but merge the so far different specialty areas within the meaning of PI.
