You can’t improve your productivity if you don’t know it. Measure your productivity using OEE, Overall Equipment Effectiveness – and find out what part of your planned production time that is actually productive.
Measure your productivity at your process bottleneck. Your process is only as good as the weakest link. If you can improve the bottleneck, you can improve your entire process.
100% OEE means you’re producing as quickly as possible, without any downtime, and everything you produce is OK. In reality, the majority of manufacturing companies have around 60% OEE, which means there are clear losses and many opportunities for improvements. Let’s get started!
Don’t increase your availability by 5% at the expense of lowering your quality 4%. Break down OEE and take all factors into account: Availability, Performance and Quality. Identify all your productivity losses and set goals to reduce or even eliminate them.
Measure your availability by monitoring the part of your planned production time your production equipment is actually running. Identify and try to eliminate your availability losses in the form of unplanned stops, like equipment failures and material shortages, and reduce planned stops, like set-up time.
Measure your performance by monitoring the part of your planned production that backlog because you don’t keep the fastest possible Takt. Identify and try to eliminate or reduce your performance losses in the form of small continuous stops, that the worker solves without help from maintenance and therefore are easy to become blind to, and everything else that makes you lose speed.
Measure your quality by monitoring the part of your produced parts that are OK after having gone through your production process. Identify and try to eliminate or reduce your quality losses in the form of waste or rework.
Digitize and automate your data collection to calculate your OEE quickly, simply, and reliably. And visualize it automatically, avoiding having to collect and compile data manually.
Visualize your OEE automatically in easily understood KPIs, Key Performance indicators, on production boards at your shop floor, and in a web interface, so that you can follow your productivity in real time, identify your biggest losses and act on deviations, to change the outcome – wherever you are.
Prioritize the biggest losses (Six Big Losses) and make continuous improvements (Kaizen, 改善), to improve your productivity, reduce waste, and increase your profit – step by step.
We calculate your OEE quickly, simply and reliably by interacting with your production equipment. We also visualize your productivity in easily understood KPIs on production boards and online, so that you can follow your productivity in real time, identify your biggest losses, and improve your productivity.
