Overall Equipment Effectiveness Workshops

Overall Equipment Effectiveness workshops to help you and your company to excel in OEE

Workshops for every stage of OEE

Why participate in workshops or learn something that isn’t right for the current state of your company regarding Overall Equipment Effectiveness? Our OEE Workshops teach you the right things at the right time. So you can focus on improving productivity, while we help you to provide your team with the knowledge required for to the next stage.

Workshops step 1: PLAN

Before Ramp-Up. The first steps into OEE

If you are not sure yet whether OEE is something that may help. We can offer you several stepping stones, varying from an initial ‘For what problem is OEE a solution?’ workshop, an OEE ROI Quick Scan or even an on-site Pilot – Try Out. It is all possible.

Implementation quick-scan

By performing a quick-scan, we can answer questions about the impact of the OEE Toolkit Suite implementation. E.g. How much time will an OEE implementation cost? What can you expect? How does an OEE Toolkit implementation influence the working days of my employees?

Awareness

A high-end workshop to align all stakeholders on the same page regarding the current challenge and the strategy to boost continuous improvement.

Multi-site standardization

Although machines, and thus OEE definitions, may be differ from each other, creating a common OEE method of working within your various sites is necessary to be able to create a common language.

Hoshin Kanri - Policy Deployment

How to cascade goal setting from company level to machine-level. Aligning (OEE) targets for several machines to add up to higher level goal settings.

Workshop step 2: DO

During Ramp-Up. Get it up and running

The first stage is the technical installation of the OEE software suite. Our experts help your technical staff to introduce and implement the software in no-time. You will get the gauges up and running, robust and fast. Fast meaning, just a few hours.

‘Big Six’ Ramp Up

After the technical implementation, equipment specific (OEE) definitions have to be established. In order to visualize all potential losses (‘Six Big Losses’), the most impactful definitions, specific to your environment, will be set together with the crew. This workshop can be combined with the OEE Toolkit Introduction Training.

OEE Introduction

The basics of OEE. The course is available in several formats, depending on who the audience is: managers, administrators or shop floor.

OEE for Management

An interactive course, explaining how to ‘read’ OEE information and translate it into actions.
‘How to use OEE to achieve the desired behavioural changes’ is core in this course.

OEE Shopfloor

Short training for operators. The main focus is on the why of OEE and how to get the data right. Short introduction to analyses.

OEE Teamleader

Focusses on preparation for daily management meeting: How to check data integrity? How to prepare daily and weekly charts and reports? How to maintain changing master data?

OEE Administrator

This course covers all technical aspects of our OEE Toolkit Suite. The training focuses on installing, configuring and editing of master data, localization and user interfaces.

Workshops step 3: CHECK

After Ramp-Up. Does it do what it should do?

Double check everything, before you ramp-up.

OEE Monthly Review

In order to remain focussed, a monthly data review and loss analyses can help keep team leaders on track. Regular feedback from CI experts can reveal opportunities.

Gap Analysis

When goals are clear, the gap can be analysed and all parties involved can set up a ‘war-plan’ to close the gap.

Analysis and Evaluation

The analysis and evaluation workshop is done by an expert that teaches how to analyse, draw conclusions and how to make sure your organization gets the most out of our OEE Toolkit Suite. In this workshop you will discover how you can further improve the production process.

Shop floor follow-up

After about two months of data collection, it is time to (re-)align the shop floor, support-departments and management. What did we learn? What needs attention? What can be improved? Who can help where? This would be a good starting point for the continuous improvement process.

OEE Daily Management

Part 1: how to set up a daily management structure, how to use the OEE Toolkit Suite as a daily steering instrument. How to organize improvement projects and routines?

Part 2: How to make the right analyses to steer an effective daily management?
How to use visualization and set up performance meetings.

Workshops step 4: DO

During Ramp-Up. Continuously improve your OEE!

As soon as your loss landscape has been revealed, you are ready to set action. A Gap Analysis or follow-up workshop has brought you to a plan. Depending which losses popped up, a wide variety of actions are possible.

SMED

Single Minute Exchange of Die is a proven methodology to reduce your setup time without any investment. Results typically in a reduction of 50 to 90(!) % in setup time.

Autonomous Maintenance Implementation

In seven steps, cleaning, lubrication and inspection tasks are transferred from the maintenance engineers to the operators. This gives Maintenance “ears and eyes” at the machine and frees up time for the engineers while operators grow knowledge and ownership.

Preventive Maintenance Implementation

Shifting from traditional corrective maintenance (fix it when it breaks) to preventive maintenance. Changing from unexpected breakdowns to planned maintenance stops.

Problem Solving ‘Small Group Activity’

There is no problem that your own people cannot solve. However, it takes the right approach. SGA activities (Small Group Activity, ‘kaizen team’), together with OEE, are the secrets of Zero Loss, Zero Defect.

Push to Pull conversion

Instead of trying to plan the unplannable, keep it simple and have visual Kanban and Fifo systems in place.

Makigami Process Improvement

Reduce throughput time and stabilize any business process dramatically in three phases:
current state analysis, loss analysis, future state design.

Visual Workplaces (5S)

Creating organised workplaces are the basis for any improvement. Although it sounds simple, it is astonishingly difficult when well done and extremely powerful.
