Data that is logged with Cloud Logging can be visualized in the IXON Cloud, exported as CSV, requested from our API, or periodically e-mailed to you in the form of a PDF report. This article focuses on the latter.
With Report Generator you can:
- Create multi-page report templates of your machine data.
- Schedule a report to be sent to you periodically, in PDF format.
- Manually send a report to yourself or other users, in PDF format.
Practical use cases of Report Generator include:
- Performance monitoring
Service managers want to stay informed about the key performance measurements of their machines out in the field. With Report Generator, you set up a report template once and have a performance report sent to your mailbox every morning, week, or month. Start your morning routine quickly scanning your machine fleet performance, comfortably from your mailbox.
- Record keeping
When there has been a disruption of machine operation, it is good practice to keep a log of what happened and why, in order to investigate and prevent it from happening in the future. Using Report Generator the OEM can create a simple to read PDF export which they can attach to any incident report within their own systems.
- Proof of regulatory compliance
Some sectors face regulatory rules where the end-user needs to prove their compliance. Take an air scrubber for example, where an auditor requires the farmer to hand over an output quality report on request. With the Report Generator you can create and share a report for your auditor on the fly.
- Reporting as a service
Machine builders can choose to provide their customers with periodic reports on their insights. With Report Generator the analist can easily export the insights. Using graphical representations that are simple to understand, without the need to extract and transform that data in additional tools.
