VDMXL Control Panel

Companies that manage on the basis of economic value added are obliged to continually monitor their performance. Within VDMXL, this is done with the help of the VDMXL Control Panel; a fully automated KPI dashboard for Maintenance & Asset Management organizations. The VDMXL Control Panel has been developed using Modern Business Intelligence software and is integrated into the company’s EAM system. The 12 VDMXL KPIs are calculated and visualized in real time on the basis of data provided by SAP EAM, IBM Maximo, Infor EAM or Ultimo. In addition, the Control Panel includes a separate dashboard for each KPI and contains six subordinate PIs. Each (K)PI can be further analyzed using flexible drill-down analyses and lists with transactional data from the EAM system.


The key VDMXL Control Panel functionalities are as follows:

  • Real-time visualization of 100+ predefined KPI graphs.
  • Elaborate target module for managing KPI standards and budgets for each asset/period (week, month, year).
  • Flexible drill-down analysis below each KPI graph with adjustable axes and predefined filters.
  • Support for internal and external benchmarking.
  • Option of developing and visualizing company-specific KPI graphs.
  • Automated calculation of the Economic Value Added (EVA) per asset/period.
  • Meeting Action Tracker for documenting and monitoring actions.
  • Developed using modern SAP Business Objects and IBM Cognos BI technology.
  • Proven Performance Management methodology for on-site organizational implementation.
