Our 1-day Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) programme provides delegates with an understanding of the techniques used to evaluate the efficiency of a manufacturing operation and in addition to identifying potential improvements and equipment utilisation.

 Using Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) measures, companies can identify process performance improvement opportunities. By reducing the cycle time, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) will increase production volumes. Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) measurement is also commonly used as a key performance indicator (KPI) in conjunction with lean manufacturing efforts to provide an indicator of success.

Rarely is it possible for any manufacturing process to run at 100% OEE, so Manufacturers will often benchmark their industry sector and set a challenging target; 80-85% is considered best practice. OEE is calculated with the formula (Availability) x (Performance) x (Quality). Therefore, by understanding each component of the process, plans for targeted improvement can be developed.
