Microsoft Power BI improves efficiency and safety

Microsoft Power BI improves efficiency and safety As a tool that aggregates, analyses and visualises data, Power BI has been implemented with the assistance of the Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy and Fertilisers (WesCEF) IT team who helped configure and troubleshoot the models as part of a collaborative approach at WesCEF.

While this process has operated well for many years, there were some potential risks including double handling, paper based processes, human error – as some documentation was hand written and relied on specific customer knowledge – due to rules around tank sizes, levels, usage, delivery day, timing and reorder points. Over an eight month period, incremental releases of the solution […]
