Brownes Dairy is Western Australia’s most established and experienced dairy company. Brownes collects over 144 million litres of milk from over 61 dairy farmers each year from farms in the south west of Western Australia.
Being a Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) company, Brownes Dairy needed to have instant access to key business drivers for Sales and Production. Far Data Solutions were engaged to provide Business Analysis and Development services to:
- Understand in detail the business drivers of a FMCG company
- Understand the data being captured in JDE and other systems, and then provide the business with a plan to fill the data-gaps
- Develop a proto-type Sales and Production dashboard for review and sign-off from management and operations
- Develop full suites of dashboards to provide the management and operations with the ability to get a daily view of sales and production against budgets and forecasts
Far Data Solutions provided a senior analyst to work with the business to understand every aspect of their business. A key aspect of the engagement was understanding the data that was being captured in JDE and various data sources.
This enabled Far Data Solutions to identify processes that needed to be developed to ensure data was captured in the correct manner to ensure accurate reporting.
Using an agile development approach allowed Far Data Solutions to develop proto-type dashboards, using Rocket CorVu NG, to give management and operations a clear picture of how the current data being captured would be presented by dashboards.
The outcome for Brownes Dairy was:
- The development of a series of business processes resulting in data capture accuracy, coupled with exception reporting to highlight any data issues
- Development of a suite of dashboards to provide the management and operations with the ability to get a daily view of sales and production against budgets and forecasts
- Documentation of all key business drivers to ensure that future management and operations clearly understood the information being presented in the dashboards
