Before you start with OEE, the following questions should be asked: what is your goal? Which issues do you want to be solved?
Each company is different. Each machine in that business is different. Depending on your local situation, your team will only find what you are willing to look for. The power of OEE software is not determined by the data you collect. What empowers the software is the way these data can be used.
Powerful analyses begin with powerful definitions and configurations. The better you pre-define the data that need to be collected, the better the potential quality of the collected data to do the right loss-analyses later on.We do not believe in masses and masses of data. At FullFact we prefer to register minimal data. However, the data we do collect must make enhanced loss visualisation possible. This is a prerequisite to find your improvement potential!
Total freedom of configuration
Technical Director, Arno Koch, established the OEE Industry Standard in 2001. His primary goal was and still is to visualize ANY loss on ANY machine. This seriously challenges the flexibility in defining loss-registration. The FullFact OEE Toolkit Suite allows total freedom of configuration, supports the OEE Industry Standard, and provides standardisation across machines, departments and plants.
