Where are Scoreboards located in the App?
To view your Scoreboards, go to Timelines ➡️ Scoreboards.
What are Scoreboards?
Scoreboards show data from a collection of machines, or machine groups.

They show data about the current shift. (If shift not specified, they will show data about the entire day.)
Scoreboards are intended to be displayed on a TV screen on your factory floor. They help you answer the question "what's going on on my shop floor right now?"
How many machines can I fit on each Scoreboard?
Generally speaking, you can fit about 20 machines on a screen. However, keep in mind that the more machines you have in a machine group, the less detailed data you will get on your Scoreboard.
If you want more details about each machine, we recommend you rotate several different machines.
- You can rotate multiple Scoreboards using the "Load Rotating Dash" functionality:
What data shows up on my Scoreboards?
Scorecards can display data about utilization, downtime reasons, good/scrap parts and more. However, the Scoreboard will only as complete as your data logging. That's why we recommend utilizing Tallysheets in tandem with Scoreboards.
Scoreboard data with Tallysheets
Scoreboards with all data filled out using Tallysheets will look like the below screenshot:
Scoreboard data with multiple Tallysheets
When multiple Tallysheets for different parts/operators are submitted, the most recent 2 Tallysheets within the shift will show up on the Scorecard. The more recent one will show up on top. You can tell them apart by the gray bars (aka the "bullet" bars) on top of the metrics. So in the screenshot below, there's a sheet that ran from 5:30 to 1:30, then at 1:30 the part and operator changed.
Scoreboard data with Operator & Part Data Only
If you're not using Tallysheets, your Scoreboards will show significantly less data.
If you're inputting part and operator assignments, but not using Tallysheets, your Scoreboards will look like the screenshot example below.
The example only shows the operator, but it would look the same for a part but the label would say Part instead of Personnel.
Scoreboard data with Utilization Data Only
If you're not using Tallysheets or inputting part assignments/operators, your Scoreboards will only show the basics (utilization & production hours). It will look like the screenshot below:
How to Read Scoreboards

There are 2 types of Timelines displayed in a Scoreboard.
The first is Timeline is the same as other Timelines seen in the app but with a few aesthetic changes. This Timeline shows whether a machine is running (green), idol (yellow) or off (red), throughout a shift. See screenshot below.
The second is a non-machine Timeline and is displayed with a gray bar.
This shows the time that an operator has been on a machine and/or how long the machine has been running a part.
Metrics and Targets
Each number with a heading displayed on a Scorecard is considered a metric.
A metric will change color* when a user has configured** a target. That looks like this:
Right now there's only one target that can exist: Utilization-per-machine. Targets are currently color coded as follows:
- Less than 10% deviation from target: Green. For example, if your target is 50% utilization, this number will be green until you dip below 45%
- Between 10% and 25% deviation from target: Yellow. For example, if your target is 80% utilization, the number will display as yellow between 72% and 60%.
- More than 25% deviation from target: Red. For example, if your target is 80% utilization, the number will display as red when it dips below 60%.
If the number is "over" your target, it will display as green.
Additionally, Good Parts will display as green and Scrap Parts will display as red.
Every Scoreboard will display Summary Stats at the top. These will look familiar if you have ever used Amper's Dashboard tool.
The summaries will show for a specific machine during a specific shift. Summaries include:
- Average Uptime
- Average Downtime Event
- Average Downtime Length
- Average Time to First Part.
When downtime happens, the two reasons with the most total time are shown in a red "pill". In the example below, "Setup" and "Break/Lunch" are the top reasons for the most downtime.
The number indicator to the left shows the total number of downtime events that have occurred. So in this example, there are 3 total reasons for downtime during this shift. But we only see the top 2 reasons.
If there are unlabeled events, the indicator flashes. However, indicator doesn't start flashing until things are left unlabeled for longer than 30 mins.
