Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) calculations monitor manufacturing effectiveness.
The resulting OEE number, represented as a percentage, is generic and allows comparisons across differing
The OEE Downtime Module calculates the three factors used in determining the overall equipment effectiveness of
any facility: availability, performance and quality. Learn how OEE is calculated >
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 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 that come included in the module:
- Scheduled vs Actual Production Runs
- Actual Hourly Production vs Target
- OEE by operator, product code, work order
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
are utilized by management and operations personnel.
