Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

OEE stands for Overall Equipment Effectiveness and is a metric used to measure the efficiency and productivity of manufacturing processes. OEE helps to quantify the performance of a production plant by evaluating three key factors:

  1. Availability: Measures the percentage of scheduled production time that is actually productive. Availability losses are caused by breakdowns and repairs.
  2. Performance level: Compares the actual production speed with the theoretically possible production speed. Performance losses are caused by smaller stops and slower working speeds.
  3. Quality rate: The proportion of fault-free products in total production. Quality losses result from rejects and rework.
OEE is expressed as a percentage and provides a clear picture of how effectively a system is being used. An OEE value of 100% means that only good parts are produced as quickly as possible without downtime, which is practically never achieved. OEE helps companies identify areas for improvement to increase productivity, reduce waste and optimize equipment utilization.
