This is a good tutorial on how to create a flash based dashboard. Although the steps demonstrated are for a static dashboard you could use a scripting engine like PHP to feed dynamic data to the chart engine.
NOTE: You need to know a scripting language like ASP or PHP in order to deliver a complete functional dashboard. This tutorial lays out the ground work for prototyping or creating quick mockups.
Like the instrument panel in a car, the computer version-dashboard displays critical info in easy-to-read graphics, assembled from data pulled in real time from corporate software programs. Dashboards deliver the detailed information needed by everyone for day-to-day decision-making. Simple yet powerful analysis allows any user to discover vital trends in business performance and continuously monitor the performance of your organization at all levels and in real time.
Dashboards provide your business with real-time business intelligence across all areas of your company – from accounting and sales, to fulfillment and support. The Dashboard offers instant snapshots of your designated key performance indicators (KPIs), and provides real-time trend graphs and ad hoc reports appropriate for each role in your business. With direct drill-down capability, you can move from a summary level directly to greater detail, and you can see real-time information to proactively manage for better results.
