How to Configure and Enter KPIs - BlastIQ Insights

During the BlastIQ Insights transition period, admin users will have to access Site Admin “V3” in the Admin Portal to configure the new Reporting Tolerances, Blast Tags, and KPIs.1-Admin_Portal.png

Objective

Allow BlastIQ™ users to set up and record numeric KPIs against a blast so that they can visualise such values in a blast report, blast table, and - more importantly - in a generic KPI Dashboard.

KPI Limits

The following limits apply:

  • KPI Name: 30 characters.
  • 20 KPIs per site.

Note: These numbers include deleted elements.

Setup in the Admin Portal

Create a New KPI

Click Add New on the KPI's section within a site's page in the Admin Portal.

Configuring the New KPI

  1. Name – free text used for display purposes.
  2. Units – free text used for display purposes, no calculations or conversions are affected.
  3. Number of Decimal Places – defines if the maximum of decimal places allowed when entering a KPI.
  4. Minimum value allowed - Defines the range of the values allowed when entering a KPI. Allows negative values.
  5. Maximum Values Allowed - Defines the range of the values allowed when entering a KPI. Allows negative values.
  6. Select a Colour Palette or Gradient from the drop-down list - allows consistent colour coding in the KPIs dashboard.
  7. Define the lower limits of the intermediate colours of the palette - only if a colour palette is selected in step 6. Not applicable to colour gradients.
  8. Define if the KPI allow value entry. Always leave this marked ‘True’ when creating a new KPI. Mark ‘False’ if you wish to hide this KPI from the KPI value entry screen but keep reporting on historical data for it.
  9. Save. 

Edit a KPI

Within the desired KPI, click on ‘Edit’ under the ‘Actions’ drop-down menu.

Edit the desired parameters and click ‘Save’.

Note: Users can disable the KPI value entry to prevent any new values to be entered for that KPI and only require to report on historical data. E.g., an old vibration monitoring point that is no longer monitored.

 Note: KPIs may be deleted. Deleted KPIs will not be displayed in the SHOTPlus or BlastIQ™ Insights. These can be restored in the Admin Portal. Historical data is kept in the background; this is just a “soft delete."
