Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

Image of OEEAn area that most plants want to improve on is efficiency, and one of the best measures of efficiency is OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness).

OEE is a measure of the efficiency and effectiveness of the manufacturing processes (i.e. machines, cells, assembly lines, processes, etc.) OEE works by breaking down the reasons for productivity losses into three main factors:  Availability, Performance and Quality.

Most of your PLCs have the data that is helpful in determining your OEE. Kasa's employees have experience with a variety of equipment and in getting the information from your PLCs to your existing downtime software or providing you with the tools  to track and analyze OEE data.

Key questions for reducing downtime and raising OEE:

  • How are you currently tracking your OEE and downtime?
    • Are people walking around with clipboards  recording information that is then transferred to spreadsheets?
  • Do you know how much downtime is occurring that isn't being reported?
  • How are you currently analyzing your downtime data?
    • Can you compare machines, people, materials?
  • How confident are you when making decisions about increasing efficiency?
