Ernie Mazuin Mohd Yusof, Mohd Shahizan Othman, Yuhanis Omar and Ahmad Rizal Mohd Yusof

A manufacturing based organization operates in an environment where a fast and effective decision is needed. This is to ensure that the output is met with customer compliance. There exists manufacturing systems that collect the operational data and the data turns out to be in a high volume due to the state of the art of the abundant manufacturing operational data. Having a lot of data without the tool to analyze and extracting valuable information from it, increases the amount of time spent by employees focusing on the data itself. This eventually leads to a delay in a decision making process, resulting in a delay of products delivery to customer. To fill in this gap, a Business Intelligence (BI) implementation will be reviewed, with the aim to execute the right action at the right time or in other words, to improve the decision making process of an organization.
