Efficiency rates will change depending on product specifications-which affects the
rate of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). Product specifications must be taken into account to
determine the correct rate of effectiveness. The OEE Downtime Module stores the settings for a product code
for each production line it can be produced on, making it quick and easy to schedule products, and track the
OEE rate accurately.
Create product codes with preset efficiency specifications for each production line.
If your facility has more than one production line, most likely any one product can only be produced on
certain production lines.
Keeping products and corresponding production lines organized within product codes will expedite scheduling
and help you determine how to get the product produced most efficiently amongst other products running at
the same time.
Product codes are stored and can be used for all future work orders, eliminating
redundant data entry over time. Codes can then be assigned to work orders, reducing entry time.
Different machines may be used for different portions of the process. Set up work orders by pulling together
all the product codes assigned to a variety of machines that are required to complete the work order.
