OEE Calculations Made Easy
Improve Your Facility’s Overall Equipment Effectiveness
Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) calculations monitor manufacturing effectiveness. The resulting OEE number, represented as a percentage, is generic and allows comparisons across differing industries.
The OEE Downtime Module calculates the three factors used in determining the overall equipment effectiveness of any facility: availability, performance and quality.
OEE Software & Downtime Tracking Combined
Calculating overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) using automated software is most effective when combined with downtime tracking.
Automatic and Manual Entry
Data is automatically recorded via OPC rather than relying on manual entry and interpretation by production staff. As an added benefit, valuable man hours will be reduced for data entry, and can be utilized elsewhere.
OEE Calculations Included
OEE calculations included within the OEE Downtime Module are designed to measure efficiency. See where improvements can be made, and measure the results! You can also develop your own custom OEE calculations, or modify the pre-calculated OEE measurements. Other features that come with the module are:
- Scheduled vs Actual Production Runs
- Actual Hourly Production vs Target
- OEE by operator, product code, work order
Implementing OEE For Success
After OEE is calculated, tracking it over time and making changes that result in increased equipment effectiveness is the next step. Implementing an OEE software system and improving a facility’s efficiency is most effective when best practices for OEE are utilized by management and operations personnel.
