OEE is the single best metric for identifying losses and improve productivity of the manufacturing equipment. OEE is a key performance indicator that measures how effectively available time is utilised in producing saleable goods. OEE is a performance metric compiled from data on machine availability, performance efficiency and rate of quality, that is collected either manually or automatically.
In today’s highly competitive scenario asset utilisation is a key factor en route to being a world class company. OEE is a very transparent and universally understood metric to measure just this. Improving equipment productivity should be one of the most important challenges faced by any manufacturing unit. In reality most manufacturing companies have OEE scores closer to 60% or less when measured correctly. Achieving word class OEE of 85% is a challenging task for any industry. Educating people about OEE, constant monitoring of OEE and adopting appropriate lean tools to improve OEE helps any industry to achieve world class productivity.
