Case study: Power BI

Creating Business Intelligence solutions is what we do daily so we can quickly spot areas of the most worthwhile use-cases. But for the companies that would benefit from it the most – which at the same time are the ones that don’t use it yet – it can be hard to imagine what it could do for them, how it could improve their operations and cut costs.

That is why we prepared this list of practical case studies to show you how you can facilitate decision-making processes in your company by implementing a robust BI solution.

All the described scenarios are real-life solutions that we built for our clients. We hope that this article will inspire you to take the initiative and make the change for a better in your company’s dataflow.

Power BI in production

Product Management

Power BI in HR

Integrating OEE indicators with Power BI

Our client, a global company and a leader in the manufacturing of spreads and plant-based foods needed our help with their OEE analysis. Antdata’s task was to implement a comprehensive Business Intelligence tool that would allow them to calculate and analyse the OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) indicator, which is a percentage snapshot of machinery usage efficiency. The challenge was (as it is in many cases) that the data came from 15 factories around the world whose reporting systems were inconsistent.

Our interactive report thanks to the integration of different systems in Power Query, showed standardize indicators, which had a direct impact on the quality of the data and the repeatability of analysis.  The implementation of the Power BI solution  provided a clear, up-to-date, and easily accessible view of the effectiveness of individual lines in the factories, including downtime. This helped to focus on what needed to be improved to deliver value to the business. As a result, their performance got better from the bottom up – both globally and from a single production line perspective.

But it doesn’t stop there. Thanks to the use of Power BI reporting it is possible to monitor the trend of availability, productivity, and quality over time. This allows for faster and more accurate identification of areas and processes with high potential for improvement to plan optimization activities in the places which require it most.

Looking at the standardized OEE indicators, it is possible to perform comparative analysis and detect differences in efficiency between individual production lines or entire factories, as well as to detect anomalies that can determine the speed and quality of production.

Business Intelligence in logistic services

By  implementing a Power BI  solution you can dramatically improve the speed and availability of analyses. A great example of that is one of our clients – a major provider of logistics services. Being a logistics company, our client operated through an intricate structure of branches located all over Poland belonging to several companies. Antdata’s task was to create a unified Business Intelligence tool that would allow them to track the budget execution stage and costs related to the sale of goods and services.

So we did. The Power BI report that we created enabled a simple and accessible analysis of revenue from sales of services and goods, added value, depreciation costs, or operating results of the activity. Having that data shown in a consumable and understandable way, it was possible to determine the appropriate courses of action and savings. The automated solution allowed them to track multiple performance measures, forecasts, and optimization analyses across locations, divisions, product categories, and products. The delivered analyses of percentage deviations in a month context gave them control over the company’s expenses and costs and made them better prepared for reacting to any anomalies.

There was another requirement – specific reporting modules were to be available at different organizational levels – from single branch managers to the main board of directors. This was to allow the decision-makers to obtain important business information on each level of the company’s hierarchy in line with their authorization. Thanks to the application of row-level security, specific employees received access only to those data rows, which were important for their department and accordingly to the internal data security policies.

Bespoke automatic reports utilizing DAX-based calculations, bring to the companies a new quality of working with data. They allow to generate savings and optimize actions aimed at determining the right development directions, with the maximum elimination of human error. The trend charts for operational results enable comparative analysis of efficiency of branches and companies, which allow for quicker and more accurate decisions both for individual organizational units as well as entire companies.

Power BI implementation in a store chain

Our client, a company owning a store chain and franchise stores, needed a comprehensive Business Intelligence tool to control and analyze sales performance.

The automated reporting system implemented by us on the  Power BI platform  for the sales department allowed for a quick analysis of sales by receipts. The receipts were supplemented from the SQL database. The data coming from over 70 stores from across Poland were integrated into the database. The resulting interactive sales and margin report showed data from both perspectives – company stores and franchise stores. The data in the report was scheduled to refresh automatically 8 times a day so that the report always showed the most up-to-date results.

The ability to view the sales results of the individual stores on an annual, quarterly, or monthly basis, allowed for more efficient management of the entire sales chain. By utilizing a collection of DAX functions it was possible to create a number of advanced KPIs: budget and margin execution, statistics for different types of sales documents, or the year-to-year comparisons. In addition, tracking trends over time and the ability to compare sales between the individual stores, categories, or products further expanded the field of business analysis.

The report not only showed sales data but also what is strictly connected to sales – marketing data. Measuring the effectiveness of promotional and marketing campaigns facilitates the planning of future actions increasing the company’s profits. Comparison of sales before, during, and after the promotion period allows for an easy evaluation of the effectiveness of marketing campaigns for each product separately.

The whole report provides a wide perspective on sales, which allows for accurate predictions and estimates of future sales. It is possible to predict the average percentage of budget execution and the expected sales value at the end of the current year. This allows taking appropriate actions which can improve sales in the nearest future.

This is a multi-level report which means that thanks to row-level security this one report can be used across all organizational levels. It is available on the Power BI service and can be viewed on all devices – computer, phone, or tablet. The report shows business results both from the company and a single store perspective. All of that hugely simplifies decision-making for the local, regional and central management.

The developed Business Intelligence system is under continuous development and subsequent stages of the project are being systematically implemented. Currently, we are working on further modules of the report within the area of inventory management, orders, and billings.

Fast invoice management with Power BI

Managing invoices in the global era can be tricky. Let’s take our company – as a provider of Business Intelligence, we use various international cloud services and subscriptions. In addition, we are an intermediary in purchasing such services for our international customers. Tracking that in an expanding company becomes a time-consuming and prone to errors task. Luckily, thanks to the Power BI reporting, it is possible to see everything in one place and compare costs allocated to different services and subscriptions.

The Business Intelligence solution that we created allows for more efficient management of invoices and the creation of clear reports for customers with detailed summaries for a given period. The ability to extract and combine data from different types of files from dispersed sources is a measurable benefit of Power BI implementation, allowing for more efficient and faster cost analysis. In addition, thanks to the use of Python scripts and the Power Automate service, we automated the entire process of data collection and processing and made it even faster and more convenient.

Thanks to connecting to the exchange rate tables of the National Bank of Poland (published on the official website), it is possible now to precisely track the exchange rate day by day and convert the value of invoices issued in foreign currencies.

This interactive report makes it easy to control and compare over time the expenses related to subscriptions and cloud services of both our company and our customers. Even though data is scattered in different services and different formats, it is possible to build a clear summary to help plan expenses.

Human Resources

Our customer was an inspection, verification, and certification specialist. Antdata’s task was to create a set of tools to monitor human resources management and the company’s finances. The goal was to increase budget supervision and to get an overview of the employment data.

Obtaining data from two different sources, which are the HR and financial departments, allowed us to build a Business Intelligence reporting tool, that permitted for precise and efficient budget control. Furthermore, the report showed the current state of employment and long-term leaves. Thanks to the implementation of Power BI reporting, it became possible to monitor budget execution by each department. Being able to compare budget executions between departments the company could relocate the assigned budgets from overestimated to underestimated ones. As we obtained data from both Finance and HR department we decided to consolidate them and look at the HR data from the financial perspective.

Creating a DAX measure to compare profits generated by each site, plant, or department with the number of headcounts or FTEs (or full-time equivalent) gave us an estimate of a profit generated by an employee.

In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and to guarantee the security of personal data, Antdata applied row-level security in the Power BI service. This functionality lets to control what part of data the user is able to see depending on his access level. The unmistakable advantage of this solution is that one report can be used by people from different levels of the organizational hierarchy.

Implementation of this solution eliminated the necessity of manual calculations – now all calculations and are fully automated and we always see an up-to-date view of the company’s resources.

There are two ways to generate visualization in Power BI. First, add items to Report Canvas from the right side pane. Another way you can do this is by dragging the fields from the right sidebar to the value axis under Visualization. By default, Power BI selects the table type visualization. To each axis, you can add as many fields as necessary. You can also click and drag your visualization to rearrange it on the reporting panel. You can easily toggle between various charts and visualizations from the Visualization window. Your specified fields are transformed to the new visual format as accurately as possible.

Let us now understand how one can perform data visualization in Power BI.

The first thing you need is data. Power BI can connect several data sources- Excel, Web, etc. The options from which data can be imported into the Power BI desktop are all visible once you click the Get Data icon. You can view the data in the Fields pane once it has been loaded.

After loading the sample data into the Power BI desktop, you can modify it with the help of Query Editor. Regardless of the data source, query editors are helpful for editing datasets. In the query editor, you can perform changes like renaming a dataset and removing one or more columns, among other things.

In Power BI, removing columns from the dataset or modifying the data types in the columns is relatively easy. You can remove columns by simply choosing the Remove Columns option after selecting the desired column. Likewise, the query editor makes it simple to perform a wide range of actions like removing and adding rows, transposing, pivoting, and splitting.

Once the dataset is complete and has undergone all necessary modifications, you can move on to creating the dashboard. Both bubble and shape maps are available for map visualizations in Power BI. To plot measure values, Power BI offers several combination chart types. Suppose you want to display overall sales and revenue on the same chart. The ideal option for this type of scenario is combination charts.

You can change the colors in the charts in BI dashboards. There is a color selection option when you choose any visualization.

Additionally, the application has an analytics feature that allows you to draw lines for data visualization according to your preferences. Power BI also has the option to add various shapes, texts, and images when visualizing data.

This blog lists 15 Microsoft Power BI projects for you. We have categorized these Power BI examples into beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. You can choose any of these power bi projects for practice to upskill yourself in the Data Science domain. 

The 15 Best Project Ideas Using Power BI 

Beginner-Level Power BI Project Basic Examples

In this section, we have included some Power BI projects for students. These simple Power BI projects will enable you to understand business intelligence applications and build a successful career as a data scientist.

The customer churn analysis project is one of the easiest and most popular Power BI sample projects. Customer Churn Analysis reveals regional customers' product sales and profits.

Intermediate-Level Power BI Project Ideas

If you’re already well-versed with the Power BI data visualization tool and are willing to strengthen your data analytics skills further as a Data Scientist, here are some power bi projects for resume-

The first Power BI project idea we have come up with is Anomaly Detection in Credit Card Transactions. Anomaly Detection is a machine learning technique for detecting unusual things, events, or observations that differ considerably from the rest of the data and look suspicious. You can implement this machine learning method in three ways- supervised (for labeled datasets), semi-supervised (for normally trained datasets), and unsupervised (for datasets without any labels).

For this project, you can use the credit card dataset by Delaware available on their open data platform itself or the credit card fraud detection dataset from Kaggle. You must first import the dataset into the Power BI desktop, maybe via a web connector. You can then leverage Power BI to train your anomaly detector or use a pre-trained model. To label outliers in Power BI, you'll need to run a Python script in the Power Query Editor and use the get_outliers() method. Finally, Power BI Dashboard can be used to visualize it. You could also train your anomaly detection model in any IDE or Notebook and then pass it to Power BI for labeling. You can do the data visualization in the Power BI dashboard with the help of Line Charts, Bubble Charts, TreeMaps, etc.

Automated machine learning (AutoML) is the technique of automating machine learning's time-consuming, iterative processes. It enables data scientists and analysts to rapidly create machine learning models while retaining model quality. Any AutoML solution's ultimate goal is to identify the optimal model based on performance metrics.

In this business intelligence project, you can work with the medical cost personal dataset from Kaggle. The business problem involves an insurance company that wishes to improve its cash flow projections by precisely estimating patient charges through demographic and primary patient health risk variables at the time of hospitalization. The first step is accessing Power BI Desktop, loading the dataset, and replicating it. The Python script may then be executed in Power Query, where the compare_models() method can be used to train different models, compare them, and evaluate their performance data. You may also use the automl() function to find the best-performing model out of all of them. For the resulting dashboard, you can leverage Power BI dashboard features such as Bar Charts, Bubble Charts, Tables, etc.

One of the most helpful Power BI project ideas is the Global Health Expenditure Analysis. This project idea is based on implementing clustering analysis in Power BI using PyCaret. Clustering is a method for bringing data items together that have similar features. These classifications help study a dataset, detect patterns, analyze data, and data clustering help in identifying underlying data structures.

In this case, use the current health expenditure dataset from the WHO Global Health Expenditure database. From 2000 to 2018, the dataset includes health expenditure as a percentage of national GDP for over 200 nations. Also, you could use the K-Means clustering algorithm for the clustering analysis. Visualize the cluster labels in Power BI Dashboard to gain insights after you have loaded the dataset in Power BI Desktop and trained your clustering model in Power BI. For the summary page dashboard, you might choose visualization chart types such as Filled Maps, Bar Charts, etc., while for the detailed visualization, you can use Point Maps.

This project concept entails evaluating loan application data to find abstract 'topics,' which are then used to assess the impact of specific topics (loan types) on the default rate. It is based on implementing the Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) topic model in Power BI. Topic modeling aims to automatically analyze a collection of documents and determine their abstract ‘topics’.

For this project, you can use the Kiva dataset on GitHub, which covers loan data for 6,818 accepted potential borrowers. The loan amount, nationality, gender, and some text data from the borrower's application are included in the dataset. Once you have loaded the dataset in Power Bi desktop, trained your model, and the topic weights are added to the original dataset in Power BI, you can visualize it in the Power BI dashboard by employing the Word Cloud feature, Pie Charts on basic maps, Bar Charts, Scatter Charts, etc.

The movie sales visualization project is one of the most exciting Power BI project ideas. This project aims to take a dataset that shows movie sales over time and turn it into an interactive visual experience. You can use the IMDb dataset for 2006 to 2016, available on both IMDb and Kaggle. The dataset includes a list of movies having an IMDb score of 6 or higher and the parameters Budget, Gross, Genre, and Scores. 

You can create a custom Radial Bar Chart and use Slicers to pick Genre, Country, and score range to be integrated directly into PowerBI. This would display parameters such as Average Score and Gross Collections for the selected set. Plotting a Histogram on the score variable using year and genre as slicers will show the frequency distribution of the IMDb scores. A KDE plot can provide a density graph and insights into the average rating for a specific genre and distribution for a given timeframe.

Advanced-Level Power BI Project Ideas

Lastly, we have listed some of the best power bi projects for professionals who need some interesting power BI projects with dataset to try their hands on. 

The Airport Authority Data Analysis project aims to provide a clear picture of all the significant airport data. The total number of flights (incoming and departing flights), the total number of flight delays (arrivals and departures), ground processing time, and the passenger feedback section can all be included in the summary page of this project’s dashboard. In case of flight changes, emergencies, or delays, this analysis could assist airport management authorities in making timely data-driven choices.

Power BI Project Idea to Analyze Airport Authority Data 

For this project idea, you can use the Airline delays and cancellation dataset available on Kaggle. The dataset includes multi-year airline data from 2009 to 2018 to provide more time-series insights. For flight analysis, you can use Power BI visualization options like Cards, Bar Charts, Flow Maps, TreeMaps, and Tornado Charts. For passenger feedback, you might prefer to use Bar Charts, Column Charts, or Cards.

Covid-19 Insights Analysis is one of the most popular Power BI project ideas among individuals. The project aims to thoroughly overview the Covid-19 pandemic's essential parameters, the latest situation, and detailed country-level evaluations. You can create a dashboard that gives valuable information regarding cases (active, deceased, or recovered), mortality, and recovery rates by nation and timeframe. Also, the dashboard might even include a management summary of the most important KPIs and a thorough analysis of individual report pages.

Refer to the Covid-19 dataset available on Kaggle for this project idea. As for the Power BI data visualization features, you can use- Bar Charts, Point Maps, Line Charts, and Column Charts for the overview page; Doughnut Charts for category-wise case analysis; and Decomposition Trees for country-wise case analysis. You might also use Heat Maps to enhance your project’s dashboard visualization.

Explore Categories

The project idea is to help construction firms better understand the industry by allowing them to dig deeper into the specifics and research relevant incidents. You can focus your project on details such as investment growth over time, investment concentrations in specific areas if the investment is impacted by Category, Contractor, or Individual, market status, and which categories, individuals, and permits are driving the market.
