Tableau Software
Overview:
A new generation of business intelligence and visual analysis software puts data into the hands of the people who need it to quickly connect to any data, find meaningful insights, easily create map views, and add data from multiple sources at any time. Slow, rigid systems are no longer good enough for business users or the IT teams that support them. Competitive pressures and new sources of data are creating new requirements. Users are demanding the ability to answer their questions quickly and easily. People see and understand data, reports and dashboards faster through unique, easy-to-use visual analytics technology.

...route to the optimal solution. Example 0.1.7 If in the constraints of the standard form (12) we set x1 = 0, x2 = 0 we have the initial basic feasible solution x3 = 12, x4 = 10, and P = 0. Step 2: Set up the initial Simplex tableau In this step we arrange the various matrices and vectors involved in the matrix form of the linear programming problem in the simplex tableau. This tableau contains all the information about the current basic variables and their corresponding values, the optimality status of the solution. The method then continues to use the principle of the Gauss-Jordan procedure to compute the next improved solution. A typical initial simplex tableau has the form shown in Table 1 In the tableau: 1.

...The simplex method is a set of mathematical steps that determines at each step which variables should equal zero and when an optimal solution has been reached. The Simplex Method The simplex method is a set of mathematical steps for solving a linear programming problem carried out in a table called a simplex tableau. The steps of the simplex method are carried out within the framework of a table, or simplex tableau. The tableau organizes the model into a form that makes applying the mathematical steps easier.

...subsequently build metrics decks and dashboards. Oracle Business Intelligence (OBIEE) and Tableau are being evaluated for their suitability for our AWS data warehouse customers. We are recommending Tableau. We have determined that it provides the best self-service experience for general purpose reporting needs and for more advanced data analytics and data visualization needs of the users of the AWS data warehouse. Problem Statement AWS data warehouse customers build and maintain SQL’s to extract data from the data warehouse. Once the raw data is extracted, it is often combined with custom data for individual services. Metrics on excel worksheets are then generated/updated. These excel worksheets are circulated to service team members and leadership for analyzing the usage and revenue of their products and also for identifying opportunities for operational improvements. Most tasks that involve creating the metric desks are manual, consuming significant effort of the data warehouse customers. The manual efforts are typically error prone and associated with the high overhead of maintaining the SQL portfolios. Modern reporting tools overcome the barriers to easily consume the data in self-service fashion and present opportunities to automate the metrics deck building/updating. In addition, adopting a reporting tool flips the time spent in data extraction to analysis and decision making. OBIEE and Tableau were evaluated by the AWS DW team to be the new self-service BI......

Tableau Usage

...1. Create a map chart to show the number of banks in each zip code (variable name “zip”. If you see more than one zip code for a bank, use the first one). I have created a symbol map chart (geographical) by taking Zip and Name dimensions. In order to find the number of banks in each zip code, I have used the count function. It can be seen that the number of banks are more on the east coast as compared to the west coast. ------------------------------------------------- Also for example, zipcode 62401 has 3 banks in it whereas 85390 zipcode has only one bank on the west coast. 2. Create a map chart to show the median ROE (variable “roe”) for banks headquartered in each state (“state”). I have added geographic role to the state dimension (stalp) and added the median function to the ROE measure. I have selected the filled map chart and used colors where: ------------------------------------------------- A state MT has ROE over positive 12 but state AZ which is in RED is in negative. 3. Create a bar chart with “state” on the horizontal axis, and trellis based on FDIC regions (“fdicdbs”) (i.e. one bar charts for each FDIC region). The height of the bars should be the number of banks headquartered in each state, and the color of the bar should reflect the variance of ROE among those banks. I have taken fdicdbs and stalp dimensions as my columns and I am counting the No of records (measure) in the rows. Along with this I am including the ROE variance......

...by solving the LP-relaxation to get a lower bound for the minimum objective value. We assume the final simplex tableau is given, the basic variables having columns with coefficient 1 in one constraint row and 0 in other rows. The solution can be read from this form: when the nonbasic variables are 0, the basic varibles have the values on right hand side (RHS) The objective function row is of the same form, with its basic variable f. If the LP-solution is fractional i.e. not integer, at least one of the RHS values is fractional. We proceed by appending to the model a constraint that cuts away a part of the feasible set so that no integer solutions are lost. Take a row i from the final simplex tableau, with a fractional RHS d. Denote by xjo the basic variable of this row and N the index set of nonbasic variables. Row i as an equation: xjo + =d Denote by ldm the largest integer that is #d (the whole part of d, if d is positive). Because all variables are nonnegative, # Y #d xjo + Left hand side is integer Y xjo + # ldm From the first and last formula it follows that d - ldm # If we denote the fractional parts by symbols r = d - ldm fij = wij - lwijm, we get a cut constraint or a cutting plane in the solution space: $ r. Equation form, using a slack variable si : 26 + si = -r This equation is of basic form, with basic variable si = -r. The resulting simplex tableau is optimal but infeasible, and we apply the dual simplex method until all variables are nonnegative. The......

Le manque de réactivité L’obtention rapide des informations composant l’indicateur n’est pas une garantie suffisante, il faut sélectionner des indicateurs qui permettent d'anticiper les situations en ciblant avec précision les actions de progrès d'un service (d'une activité) ou en identifiant les causes de dysfonctionnement. Il faut ensuite diffuser rapidement les résultats afin de générer des actions d'amélioration, au minimum dans un délai qui soit compatible avec les actions à mener. Par exemple : Dans une entreprise qui travaille par affaire, la connaissance des ventes facturées est une information trop tardive. Par contre la connaissance du nombre de devis réalisés chaque semaine et du nombre de devis transformés en commande fermes est une donnée essentielle. Un nombre de devis qui baisse permet d'agir rapidement sur les différents leviers d'actions que constituent l'activité des commerciaux, le niveau des prix des devis,... Le nombre de devis transformés en commande permet une mesure de l'efficacité des commerciaux et aussi une anticipation des taux de chargement des ateliers de production par exemple. Le manque......

Many of them were discarded which did not give good visualization. But many calculation gives good insights specially the rental car data set. The data shows that there is an increase in the revenue of rental car. But after reshaping it was found that the per car revenue on the rental car is declining since three years. This is due to the fact of internet and app based car services like Uber, Lfyt. 3. CHALLENGES When the team finished with individual worksheets, the team proceeded to make the dashboards, and finally put all the dashboards together to create a story book. Creating the story book did not take much time since the team had a clear idea of the story and what wanted to tell. However, it took long hours to polish every minute detail – any simple modification could potentially result in rearranging the entire story book. The major challenges face is the resolution of the story book. The dashboard resolution was getting changed when it was added in the story board. Fortunately, all team members got along well and were on the same page. Hence, the final stage of the project went smoothly. Overall, the team was glad to work on this project. Visualization with Tableau is a fun, exciting, and effective way to tell stories. Team had learnt many new tools and tricks within Tableau from each other. Now, the......
