Improving daily reconciliation quality in Slovnaft Refinery
Company and production managers base their strategic and operational decisions on daily and monthly data. They are more and more conscious of the need for quality metrics to understand the reliability of the data they reviewing. With this in mind, the Slovnaft production accounting team developed a set of metrics based on the indicators Sigmafine provides to measure how the balance is performing and identify improvements over time.
