These are called “data boxes.” Based on the process, there are numerous metrics that may need to be collected, such as: Yield, Setup Time, Manual Cycle Time (MCT), Queue Time, Lead Time, Inventory/Backlog, # of People/Shifts, Overtime %, Available Time, % Complete and Accurate, Energy (kWh), Landfill tonnage (Waste), Equipment/Server Uptime %, or add your own. Definitions of each metric is provided in the template.
