myDials, provider of operational performance management software, announced availability of the myDials Developer Kit, which enables users to easily, and cost-effectively, implement, manage and maintain myDials' Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, the company announced Dec. 1. myDials' performance management platform helps users improve business results by monitoring performance in real-time to identify and characterize problems, make decisions and take action to fix issues quickly, the company says. With the developer kit, organizations with varying levels of IT expertise and resources, can save time and be more self-sufficient by independently deploying, managing and customizing configuration and dashboard settings, the company says.
"The myDIALS Developer Kit is very easy to use and allows us to make the implementation of myDIALS projects efficient from a partner's view," said Kim Fiddaman, senior software engineer, Sage Automation, an independent automation and control systems integration company in Australia. The kit "allows us to be more reactive to customers' needs, thereby offering a better overall customer experience."
The code-free myDials Developer Kit walks users, step-by-step , through the implementation process of connecting data sources, configuring dashboards, enabling analytic functions and adding groups and users, myDials says. All authorized users can customize dashboards with different layouts, dials, visualizations and displayed metrics, as well as add users and user groups. In addition, by using the Developer Kit, an IT or power user can quickly add brand personalization, input data from multiple sources - from spreadsheets and databases to more sophisticated data sources like ERP and CRM - and intuitively configure metrics, calculations, dimensions, targets, alert conditions, calendar and units. For further guidance, the Developer Kit features on-line help, tool tips and call-out boxes.
The myDials Developer Kit is "another example of how we're drastically shifting how companies can quickly implement a solution that enables users to interact with their operational data," said Wayne Morris, CEO of myDials. The kit helps ensure "every decision maker has the data they need, in an intuitive and interactive way, in order to improve operational decisions and hence business results," Morris adds.
Current customers can leverage the kit to update metrics, customize dashboards or adjust the views for different groups of users, without vendor assistance. This allows faster extension of performance improvement initiatives across more functions, process areas and value streams, hence optimizing more aspects of their business operations, the company says.
myDials says it is the first operational performance optimization solution that delivers "every person analytics" to all employees, across all business roles, processes and value streams. The software complements any existing business intelligence (BI) initiative or a standalone operational performance management solution, myDials says.
It combines operations and business data from any existing data source, including ERP, CRM, supply chain management, manufacturing execution systems (MES), databases, spreadsheets, flat files, or through simple data entry when data volume and complexity is low.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
