OEE is Your Key to Unlocking Manufacturing Success

 

Overall Equipment Effectiveness is a true benchmark of manufacturing productivity. Are your operations using all available uptime? Are processes running at peak capacity? During those operations, how much energy is wasted on producing unusable scrap? While OEE isn’t a new concept, it remains a moving target. Manufacturers are increasingly adopting innovative digital solutions to move closer to their 100% OEE goals

What’s draining your efficiency?

The challenge with making OEE improvements is that you can’t fix what you can’t measure. Hidden inefficiencies can cut deep into your bottom line. That’s why best-in-class manufacturers are using innovative solutions powered by the IIoT. With new levels of connectivity, visibility, and analytics, an IIoT platform can help you can find and fix the hidden drags on your machine efficiency.

The Impact of Improving OEE: By the Numbers

What kind of impact can digital solutions really make on your machine efficiency? The following metrics are taken directly from manufacturing customers, reflecting how digital solutions are boosting productivity.

Minimize CAPEX
15% reduction in CAPEX

By using digital solutions to extend asset life, manufacturers can shed up to 15% of their CAPEX expenditures.
Prevent Downtime
50% reduction in downtime
Preventative maintenance, and empowering workers can cut up to 50% of unplanned downtime.
Boost Changeover

Accelerating worker efficiency and optimizing production lines can result in up to 70% faster changeover time.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness

The combined adjustments to changeover, downtime and CAPEX can deliver up to a 50% in total OEE improvements.

 

With smart planning and the right technology—you can unlock a leaner, more agile factory. Build up workforce and machine efficiency by:

 

  • Remotely monitoring equipment condition and status.
