SoluDyne QIS Excel Reports

SoluDyne QIS Excel Reports provide an instant and visual overview of deviation trends over time. Both a simple and effective way to follow the results of internal campaigns for quality and performance measurement, and the perfect presentation tool! 





Trend provides an overview of the number of reports divided between time for the individual variance category, and overall time taken.  The trend overview enables the quick & easy identification of changes from one year to another, as well as any build ups. By monitoring trend you can effectively measure whether campaigns have had the desired effect on the number and type of events reported.



Per Customer

See how many cases are registered per customer pr deviation category! The timeline can be used to specify particular time frames in years or months. Additional feilds can always be specified to further detail customer QIR information. 



Per Root Cause

Get insight into how many cases were registered per root cause per deviation category. Use the timeline to specify year and month.


Expand existing pivot tables and graphs in seconds

Add more fields by simply clicking or dragging a field down in a column, row, or filter value box. Save the changes and the new report is complete.


Create new pivot tables and graphs

Customising your own tables and graphs is simple! Simply mark all the data in the data tab by clicking the upper left corner, selecting “Insert”, then “Pivot Table”. A new tab will open where you can add fields for column, row, and filter value.
For example, if you want to see detailed information for one customer, you can add the  registration date as a row; the deviation category as a column; unique id as a value, and the customer as a filter. Finally, mark the table and insert Pivot graph. The customer’s quality reporting trend per deviation category is now seen as a visual and up to date graph.





Raw data linked directly to the system is updated instantly with a single click! This ensures that the excel reports will always give you the most current and dynamic overview of your quality improvement system. As the excel data is connected directly to a query in the SoluDyne Query Register, additional data fields can easily be added by a SoluDyne Consultant. 




Per Supplier

Get a visual and clear overview of how many cases were registered per supplier per deviation category. Use Timeline to specify the required timeframe, and adjust the table details to view supplier trends.





Per Department

Shows how many cases were registered per root cause per department. Use the timeline and pivot fields to adjust views and details as required.


Create new SoluDyne QIS Excel Reports

If the SoluDyne application has been setup without automatic login, the connection in Excel must be "opened" manually:


  1. On the Data tab navigate to Connections
  2. Select Properties..
  3. Select the Definition tab
  4. Press Edit query... 
  5. If a login prompt appears, sign in using your SoluDyne username and password 
  6. Press cancel and close the dialog windows 
  7. Refresh using Refresh All on the Data tab
