OEE and Productivity Improvement

Maximize Potential: Elevate Efficiency

Overall Equipment Effectiveness

You cannot improve what you do not see. By using OEE, which machine- and process-related losses must be reduced are revealed. OEE breaks the performance of a manufacturing unit into three separate but measurable components: Time, Speed, and Quality. Each component points to specific aspects of the process that can be targeted for improvement.

 
You can analyze any cross-section of machines, lines, groups, plants, shifts, and teams in any time frame. Results improve when OEE is not just measured but also actively managed. Results improve when people take the right actions because they are involved in real-time.
Drive Productivity, Fuel Growth

What is OEE?

OEE (1982) stands for Overall Equipment Effectiveness. On the one hand, it is the standard for calculating machine effectiveness and manufacturing productivity, but moreover, it also shows how effectiveness got lost. This unique feature makes OEE a vital element of all serious improvement strategies for manufacturing processes, including TPM and Lean Manufacturing.

Elevating Operations

Who Utilizes OEE?

OEE is a versatile tool that can be adapted to different industries’ specific needs and challenges. It provides actionable insights that help companies reduce costs, improve product quality, and increase manufacturing speed, making it an essential metric for any organization looking to optimize its operations.

Achieve Excellence

Why Choose OEE

Every split second, when a cork is hit on a bottle, the bottle has become a higher value. Factories are all about such successful cycles on all those machines involved. OEE studies exactly show those moments on the spot where it happens: at the machine the moment it happens. Or not. Both are being captured. This makes it an essential measure for management and staff services that wish to know which conditions to create to thrive production effectiveness from the bottom up, setting targets and conditions top-down.

Calculate Overall Equipment Effectiveness

Know the Differences and Losses

The baseline of the OEE number is quite simple: It is the ratio between the theoretical maximum capacity vs the actual output. OEE ALSO wants to know where the differences, so the losses, can be found. Therefore, the  OEE calculation poses three questions. And three questions alone.

  • Is the machine operating?
  • Is it running at theoretical maximum speed?
  • What comes out: Is it OK?

So Basically It Is a Bit Like a Ledger

There is always a balance; DO and DIDN’T have to fit. And in there, time, volume, and quality all three have to sum up in the right way. This all sounds simple -and basically, it is- but like with a ledger; you have to understand it well to use it right.

Originally OEE was calculated only over the time a shift was scheduled. And some tend to take out specific parts of that time too, like breaks or maintenance. To deal with this and to visualize ANY loss of effectiveness, the OEE Industry Standard structures the loss tree in a very simple way.

The FullFact OEE solution always follows and visualizes this loss cascade
by displaying TEEP, OOE, and OEE as base KPIs.

Real and Sustainable Improvement

Just implementing OEE does not bring sustainable improvement. When starting to measure OEE through our software, we regularly see the OEE ‘spontaneously’ going up. Sometimes even up to 15%. But we know this is a temporary effect caused by the focus the team gets. You may as well sit beside the machine for a while and pay some attention to the process and the people.

For real- and sustainable improvement you will need to provide the right focus, support, and actions. We have a strong network of highly skilled improvement experts that will certainly be able and willing to help you through when and where needed.
