What is Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

Reduce costs and increase return on assets by improving your operational efficiency and asset utilisation

Improving Plant Performance Requires Real-time Visibility into Operational Efficiency KPIs

Manufacturing equipment utilisation and OEE can be improved by combining modern software solutions with IoT-enabled sensors and edge devices, or through integration with existing automation. This provides benefits to OEE including:

  • Visibility into runtime vs. idle and unplanned downtime
  • Capturing short stoppages and reason codes
  • Scheduling preventive maintenance based on equipment utilisation

Overall Equipment Effectiveness

OEE is a very powerful metric. This KPI is calculated from actual equipment availability, performance, and quality losses relative to maximum expected performance — essentially capturing when an asset is available, the speed at which it operates, and the number of products out of quality specification.

  • Availability (%) = Operating Time / Available Time
  • Performance (%) = Total Production / (Target Production Rate x Operating Time)
  • Quality (%) = Good Production / Total Production

Real-time OEE visibility empowers operators to make corrective actions quickly. Detailed historical data of production performance and equipment utilisation enables root cause analysis of capacity losses to determine areas for continuous improvement.
