Microsoft Power BI as a process analysis solution

DIAL Informatica consultancy services include the implementation of Microsoft Power BI for industrial and agricultural process monitoring. Power BI can be used for production KPI analysis in industry 4.0 projects and also for plant growth and phyto-pathologies tracking in smart agriculture applications.

In these application areas Microsoft Power BI is used as a “model-based tool” that allows the definition of a “semantic layer” over semi-denormalized data sources containing short and medium term field sensed data. On top of the semantic layer it is easy to define industrial production and agri-food operation logic in order to evaluate performance indicators. All this can be done through the use of sets of related “measures” and parameter sets.
Reports can then be easily created in order to analyze process performance.
