What is OEE?

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

For whom is OEE?

OEE is a methodology for operators, mechanics, team leaders, shopfloor- and production managers and continuous improvement managers to give focussed direction and keep control over productivity-improvement. OEE creates high acceptance for different departments to take part and work together to commonly create a successful factory.

Why Overall Equipment Effectiveness?

OEE studies exactly show those moments on the spot where it happens: at the machine, the moment it happens. Or not. Both is being captured. This makes it thé essential measure for management and staff services that wish to know which conditions to create in order to thrive production effectiveness from bottom up, setting targets and conditions top-down.
