Our team of baggage integration and EDS experts proposed an alternative approach for reliability and confidence periods – automating the processing, and collection where possible, of the data required. We wanted to speed up the delivery of key information to the stakeholders, remove waste in the processing of data and have a common format that could be adopted by all the projects at Heathrow.
We started by reviewing the documentation surrounding the testing and monitoring of assets and then defined the calculation methods and data sources needed to demonstrate the relevant KPIs and meet the work requirements.
We developed a native android app that could capture the data that was manually collected on-site, meaning data was now in real-time and pushed to the cloud. Microsoft’s PowerBI was chosen as the front-end dashboard, offering users a rich interface to explore the data behind the numbers and assist with root cause analysis. We developed the PowerBI Report from its roots, and utilised Microsoft’s Azure services to store and process the data, allowing the user to easily look back at historical performance and trends.
