New 2017 Dashboard

In the new 2017 version, we have added a new dashboard. When you first open your program, the home screen shows an overall view of the current farm status. In the main panel, each row shows the service periods with service results: number of services, females that drop from gestation by week, birthings, birthing rates, and litter data.

The orange cells show the number of females currently gestating by gestation day categories for each service period.

The cells under the gestation day columns show the number of gestating females, and the red bar is proportional to the number of females that dropped from gestation.

Too see the list of females served in a period, click any cell under the Services columns. The list of females is displayed in the bottom-right panel. Click the female ID to see the complete female history. To see a list of females that drop from gestation for a service period and gestation week, click any cell under the gestation area. This works in the same way for birthings and weanings.

The bottom-left panels show female status distributions:

The Entered panel shows the number of entered females by weeks from the entry event. Stacked bars display the number of heat detected females vs. not heat detected.

The Served panel shows the number of served females by weeks from service. Stacked bars display the number of females by service number.

The Lactating panel shows the number of lactating females by weeks from the birthing.

The Open panel shows the weaned and other non gestating females. Stacked bars display the weaned females vs other.

The pie chart shows the distribution of females by their status.

All these panels have the drill-down feature: Click any bar to see the list of underlying females.

Porcitec Web

New 2017 dashboards

Use the drill-down feature to go to from numbers to raw events. It shows a colored farrowing analysis and several charts with the current status of the sows.

Multi-farm features

Most reports are multi-farm. Farms can be compared side by side, consolidated, detailed, grouped (by region or any other criteria), all organized in sheets within the same report. See the multi-farm video or the figure below. Interactively you can include/exclude farms by clicking the right panel.

Unique multi-period feature allows you to run different periods within the same report. This example shows five different time periods in the same report. In the above figure, it shows the last 4 weeks by week, then summary columns for the last 4, 13, 52 and 104 weeks. These values can be customized in the Parameters screen.


Compare the key performance indicators of one farm against a group of farms. The group can be all farms in your production system or any sub-group of your databases. See more information.

Business Intelligence

The next figure shows the lifetime sow performance predicted by the first farrowing. It is a multi-dimensional analysis using the OLAP tool. Detailed info in the manual.


Create scripts to export, print, or import automatically. Useful for report delivery, importing from OCR,  populating custom Excel documents, and other tasks.
