Designing Dashboard Elements

Oracle provides a series of design guidelines for users of their products who are designing dashboards. When creating a dashboard, it is recommended that you follow these guidelines closely, especially if you have never constructed a dashboard before. Oracle comes with a default dashboard layout. When you first open this file you must ensure that you have the correct screen resolution to display the dashboard properly. Check that the tabs at the top of the dashboard are laid out in such a way that all of the titles are one a single line only. The next step in the design process is to write a brief dashboard description. It is important that every dashboard has a brief description attached to it. This should explain what the dashboard is for, and give a brief summary of its contents. The Design Guidelines provided by Oracle explain how to attach this description to your dashboard. When setting up a dashboard it is important that the pages are displayed correctly. The dashboard should be designed to fit easily into a 1024 x 768 display when it is in fullscreen mode. There should be no need for the user to scroll in any direction, either horizontally or vertically. While vertical scrolling on the first page can sometimes work, horizontal scrolling should be avoided at all times. The Oracle Guidelines also recommend that a prompts section should appear on each page of the dashboard if possible. The full Oracle Design Guidelines can be accessed here. Those who are not making use of Oracle products can also make use of these guidelines, as they are very helpful for all dashboard designers. ShareThis

  1. Performance indicator
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with performance metric. (Discuss) Proposed since October 2010.

    A Performance Indicator or Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is an industry jargon term for a type of Measure of Performance.[1] KPIs are commonly used by an organization to evaluate its success or the success of a particular activity in which it is engaged. Sometimes success is defined in terms of making progress toward strategic goals,[2] but often, success is simply the repeated achievement of some level of operational goal (zero defects, 10/10 customer satisfaction etc.). Accordingly, choosing the right KPIs is reliant upon having a good understanding of what is important to the organization. 'What is important' often depends on the department measuring the performance - the KPIs useful to a Finance Team will be quite different to the KPIs assigned to the sales force, for example. Because of the need to develop a good understanding of what is important, performance indicator selection is often closely associated with the use of various techniques to assess the present state of the business, and its key activities. These assessments often lead to the identification of potential improvements; and as a consequence, performance indicators are routinely associated with 'performance improvement' initiatives. A very common method for choosing KPIs is to apply a management framework such as the Balanced scorecard.
