Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a common benchmark of manufacturing productivity. Are your operations using all available uptime? Are processes running at peak capacity? 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 ideal OEE goals and beyond.
Go beyond OEE
While OEE performance has historically been a common standard for measuring and improving productivity, and a good visibility tool for factory productivity assessment, it doesn’t tell you where the real bottlenecks are or where to focus if you want to improve overall throughput.
A digital performance management solution makes it possible to focus resources on the correct problem through accurate problem identification and prioritization—building on the OEE initiatives you already have in place to improve performance management.
OEE in manufacturing is a critical performance management measurement, however, manufacturers can go beyond OEE and improve their performance management even more. Take OEE improvement and performance to the next level.
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.
By using digital solutions to extend asset life, manufacturers can shed up to 15% of their CAPEX expenditures.
Preventative maintenance, and empowering workers can cut up to 50% of unplanned downtime.
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.
Delivering predictive alerts to front-line maintenance experts.
Analyzing operations in-depth, across multiple facilities.
Empowering and protecting employees with digital work instruction.
