In simple terms, Over-all Equipment Efficiency is a standard for measuring your productivity. If it is so simple, why don’t you just take your actual production count and divide it by your total production capability? The answer is that it would not be accurate as it neglects to include variables such as maintenance to machines, breakdowns, scheduled stoppages, quality and many other items. To quantify OEE, the following formula is used:
OEE = Quality ( Only good parts are counted) x Performance (What’s the fastest production speed) x Availability
Measuring OEE is a manufacturing best practice!
OEE will also point you in the direction to mitigate the reasons you are at less than optimum.
By investigating your OEE, you will be given insight into increasing capacity, reducing cost, improving quality and generally increasing efficiency across your production lines. OEE can also serve as a benchmark for production. OEE can tell you if your production facility is operating at Prefect (100%), World Class (85%), Typical (60%) or Low(<40%).
In addition to this, OEE will also point you in the direction to mitigate the reasons you are at less than optimum.
S4 partnered with Vorne, one of the leading experts in the field of OEE. The Vorne OEE Appliance allows for any manufacturing variable (OEE, downtime, availability, cycle time and production time) to be measured.
The Vorne XL Productivity Appliance™ is a “bolt-on” smart device that provides accurate and automated manufacturing data to operators, engineers, and managers.
XL is available in four model versions. The only difference between each model is the scoreboard. Every XL system includes:
