In this article, we'll cover how to create new improvements and how to manage them (edit, delete, finish etc.)
To create a new improvement and start tracking your efforts, follow these steps:
Click on the "New improvement" button.
This will open up the Improvement form that first lets you create an empty project, meaning that you select the data later.
Name - Short and precise name for the improvement (max 50 characters).
Start date - Start date of the improvement (by default today's date).
End date - End date of the improvement.
Problem statement - Description of why this improvement is necessary. In other words, what problem or challenge is being solved (max 200 characters).
People involved - The responsible people for this improvement. Bear in mind that at least one person needs to be selected.
Note: Only office and administrative users are listed when defining people responsible.
<aside> 💡 The people who are defined here, are the ones who can also edit and delete the project later. Other people in your company will have read-only rights, with the exception of company administrators.
Stations - Selecting stations makes filtering improvement projects easier and when assing tracking data later on, the stations are already pre-selected based on this.
Clicking on the "Create improvement" button creates the project and now you can start defining the data you want to track.
After creating the project you can define the data to track by clicking on the "+ TRACKING DATA" button:
In this step, you are asked to define what data will Evocon analyse for this improvement and what is the target. Getting this right is absolutely crucial because it enables your team to analyse actual data and make sure that whatever they do is actually having an effect.
