Information : ScoreCard
JLG Industries, Inc. uses an off-the-shelf commercial software package to visually depict company performance measures. JLG's ScoreCard program illustrates current trends and status of key business indicators as they apply to the corporate strategy.
ScoreCard is a visual executive information system that is also used as an indicator against a benchmark and can highlight trends. It can display up to six measures at one time including sales, returns, stock, operational, financial, and employee. The system is flexible, allowing for changes and selection of information that is useful to the company. The 26 strategic performance measures are highlighted in a stoplight (red, yellow, and green) fashion. The colors represent variance indicators red is a variance of less than or equal to -10%; yellow is a variance of less than 0% or greater than -10%; and green is a variance of greater than or equal to 0%. Values are displayed in units, dollars, and percentages over periods of month-to-date or year-to-date. The software can save up to 20 user default views in the six performance categories. The Windows environment supports selection of item, date, comparative, units/dollars, and drill-down dimensions (sublayers within a performance category).
