  1. Total Visit
  2. Total Unauthorized Visits
  3. Unauthorized visit schedule
  4. Unauthorized vs. Authorized visits
  5. Crowd management

Total Visit

While looking for visits by the day, the building owner notices a dramatic change in the number of people visiting in October. Yet he knows that there is no seminar, conference or any other function in the same month then how it is possible to have a dramatic change in visits. Recommended Actions:
  • To check if any organization arranges an event without their permission.
  • To check for the system whether it is working accurately?

Total Unauthorized Visits

The above chart shows that unauthorized people’s visits have high values in April and May. The chances of mishappening or anomalies also increase because regular employees must be aware of rules, but those who will visit are not aware of them. It can also be possible that they have the wrong intentions. Therefore security should be tight at that time. Recommended Actions:
  • They must tighten the security.
  • The video/rule sessions can be arranged in those months for the visitors.

Unauthorized Visit Schedule

On Tuesday, there is a dramatic change in the number of unauthorized people visits. Because most of the organizations are arranging interviews on Tuesday, this increase can increase crowd. Recommended Actions:
  • Discussion can be done with the various organizations to arrange an interview on other weekdays rather than only Tuesday. As otherwise it is increasing crowd in the building.

Unauthorized vs. Authorized Visits

While comparing authorized and unauthorized visits for today, the building owner has noticed that the number of unauthorized visits is more than authorized; after that owner checks for the other days. He saw that the number of unauthorized persons is coming more than authorized daily, as shown in the charts, which is probably impossible. Then, the owner cross-checks with the organizations individually for the visits and notices the data mismatch. It means the system is not working correctly. Recommend Action:
  • Use Explainable AI dashboard for the system working.
  • If found any fault, ask for the maintenance of the AI system.

Crowd Management

A threshold for the people count in areas is already decided. While checking for the crowd at different times, it is noticed that at 11:00 AM, the total number of people at the cafeteria increases more than 2x from the required people count. It is because almost all organizations have the same break time that increases the crowd. Recommended Actions:
  • An owner must discuss with the various organization to design a break schedule group-wise in slots rather than overcome it.
