Control Charts

With this latest version of KaiNexus, you can create even better control charts to monitor performance. The best part? You can set the chart generate an alert should the data become out of control. That way, you’ll never miss out on important information.

You can:

  • Configure the lower, average, and/or upper limits and pick a color for each.

  • Decide whether you want to have an alert sent to all members of the chart’s team if the data that is entered is out of control.

  • Decide whether you want to make data point markers red if the point is out of control. Note that markers must also be enabled on the data series configuration.


So what happens when data is outside of the control limits? A red exclamation point will be displayed alongside the chart’s name on any list of charts. And if you enabled “Generate Flag,” every member of the chart’s team will get an alert.

Understanding The New Project Curve Report

Posted by Becca Millard

Mar 31, 2017 11:30:21 AM

I briefly touched on the Project Curve in a previous blog post, but this Report is so important that I felt it prudent to give you a more comprehensive explanation.

The Project Curve Report lets you assess the growth of your improvement over time by tracking the start and end rates of your organization’s Projects.

Typically, Improvements and Projects will have different traits. In most organizations, there will be fewer Projects than Improvements. It is also typical for Projects to take longer to be completed than it does Improvements. 

We have found that organizations that tie Projects directly to their strategic goals are often more successful than those that don’t. It also seems to be advantageous for your organization’s Projects to have a practical cycle time; if it takes too long for Projects to be completed, people may lose motivation.

The Notifications & Updates Screen

We’ve been working on incrementally improving the Notifications Screen for a while now, and I think we’ve nailed it! The new Notifications Screen is great because it lets you control what kind of information should be displayed:

  • Yours: These are notifications that you’ve received due to your association with the item - i.e. those for which you’re on the team.

  • Opt-In: These are notifications that you’ve received due to a notification preference that was either configured by you or as part of one of your Roles.

  • Comments & “Blue Dot” Updates: These are comments and any timeline updates that have been added since the last time you viewed an item.
