Hi.

Do anyone have any experience by using Access for production management? We are working IronCad, and the BOM-function gives us data in Excel-format. It would be very interesting to investigate how to make a dashboard that shows us status for our different orders/projects. The dashboard needs to extract data from the BOM-Excel, like orderno, customername, drawingfile, status drawing and status for some checkpoints during production.

It would be very nice if the status-field could be stated in variuos colors according to the line of progress. Tips and links are very appreciated.

 

Regards

Jonny

As an Access consultant I've seen Access used constantly in production environments, from a simple recipe database for a plastics producer to a full scale ERP solution for making cheeses. 

 

Your particular request, creating a dashboard and using colors is quite doable, but you may wish to consider also PowerBI.com for that as well.

 

Hope that helps!
