A report in Autodesk Prodsmart is, essentially, a list of a certain type of element defined by the user within a given time period of your choice.

It is very simple to generate a report. In the ‘Main Dashboard’ press “Reports” in the side menu.

A ‘Production Report’ will list all Production Records made during a given time span. You can also apply filters to narrow down the information, and some advanced options as detailed below.


Before applying filters you can already customize parts of your report to include a lot of useful information:

Report with detailed waste: This will showcase the quantity for each waste code logged in your production records for a time span.

Include Machine Downtime: Will add a line in the report with all details for machine downtimes logged during this time span. The downtime will appear like in the image below

Include consumed products: Creates a table at the end of the report with all consumed products and lots. This table can be seen in the image below :

‘Time period’: refers to the time interval of the Sales Orders to be presented. You can either define it, by clicking on the clock symbol, in a basic (selecting start and end date) or relative way (for example, ‘Today’, or ‘Last 7 days’). If you choose a relative time period, you can also choose to schedule the report - learn more about it here. The time interval cannot exceed one month.

By default, in this panel, the start date is always the beginning of the present month and the end date is always today.

Filters & Grouping

Report Filters: You can filter by several elements that compose a production record for only a single product or by a single worker for example.

Grouping – If you want to see all Production Record grouped by a particular type of element simply select the “Group” option in front of the respective element. For instance, if you want to see all Productions grouped by Production Order you just have to check the “Group” option in the front of the “Production Order” section. Below you can see a report Grouped by worker.

Generating and reading the report

Generate Report – Finally, after choosing the report’s options that you want and their respective time interval press “Generate Report” to see your report.

The report itself can be sorted by clicking on the arrows in the header.

Interpreting the report The report integrates different colours. Each one of them can be added to a line with a specific meaning. Below you can check the legend for each one of them.

A ‘Possible quantity error’ might mean that quantity for that record was 0, or that the record took less than 60 seconds.

Regarding the time values given, here is what they mean:

Estimated: Defined cycle time of the operation x number of units produced.

Worked: Actual time the operator spent in the operation.

Deviation: Difference between the estimated and worked time.

Idle: Time this operator spent between finishing his last production and logging into this one.

You can also export it to either pdf or excel by pressing the export buttons at the top.
