Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
Make the invisible visible!
What is OEE?
OEE (1982) stands for Overall Equipment Effectiveness. On the one hand it is the standard to calculate machine effectiveness and manufacturing productivity, but moreover it álso shows how effectiveness got lost. This feature is unique and makes OEE a vital element of all serious improvement strategies for manufacturing-processes, including TPM and Lean Manufacturing.
For whom is OEE?
OEE is a methodology for operators, mechanics, team leaders, shopfloor- and production managers and continuous improvement managers to give focussed direction and keep control over productivity-improvement. OEE creates high acceptance for different departments to take part and work together to commonly create a successful factory.

Why Overall Equipment Effectiveness?
Every split second where a cork is hit on a bottle, the bottle has become a higher value. Factories are all about such successful cycles on all those machines involved. OEE studies exactly show those moments on the spot where it happens: at the machine, the moment it happens. Or not. Both is being captured. This makes it thé essential measure for management and staff services that wish to know which conditions to create in order to thrive production effectiveness from bottom up, setting targets and conditions top-down.

Calculate Overall Equipment Effectiveness
The baseline of the OEE number is quite simple: It is the ratio between the theoretical maximum capacity vs the actual output? OEE ALSO wants to know where the differences, so the losses, can be found. Therefore, the OEE calculation poses three questions. And three questions alone.
Is the machine operating or not?
When yes, go to question 2.
Is it running at theoretical maximum speed, or not?
3. What comes out: Is it OK, or not?
The FullFact OEE solution always follows and visualises this loss cascade
by displaying TEEP, OOE and OEE as base KPI’s.
Real and sustainable improvement
Just implementing OEE does not bring sustainable improvement. When starting to measure OEE through our software, we regularly see the OEE ‘spontaneously’ going up. Sometimes even up to 15%. But we know this is a temporary effect caused by the focus the team gets. You may as well sit beside the machine a while and pay some attention to process and the people.
For real- and sustainable improvement you will need to provide the right focus, support and actions. We have a strong network of highly skilled improvement experts that will certainly be able and willing to help you through when and where needed.
