Production Availability - your uptime compared to your scheduled production time. By reducing downtime (planned or unplanned) to ensure that your machinery is available when you need it. A non-producing manufacturing line increases costs without producing anything.
Performance - your actual rate (actual machine speed) versus standard rate (design machine speed). Ensure that your production process is going at the correct speed, to get as many jobs done each week as possible. Any slow performance will result in longer run times.
Quality - your good product versus your total product. In an ideal world, there should be no defective or scrapped items, but a product that can be reworked is less detrimental to OEE than one that must be discarded.
With OEE, you can gain insights into your manufacturing process and identify losses, and how to systematically improve your manufacturing process. OEE is the single best metric for identifying losses and helps with the benchmarking progress.
In short, OEE is returned as a simple number that gives an indication of how effectively your plant’s resources such as time, material, and equipment are utilised.
Delivers significant ROI, whether you’re increasing volume, or driving effectiveness. The objective of OEE is to obtain maximum productivity.
Automated data collection, ensures the data quality is relevant, precise and transparent.
Enable accurate OEE analysis without manipulating data in tools such as reports and spreadsheets.
Real-time production targets.
OEE Software determines downtime and reveals productivity data. Management can allocate resources to team members throughout the plant to ensure greater accountability.
Detect excellent runs and set the next target.
