Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
is a tool that combines multiple manufacturing parameters and data positions to provide information about the health of the manufacturing process. This acts as a framework for root cause analysis to continuously improve the process. Globally, measuring OEE is one of the good manufacturing practices. By evaluating OEE and classifying the related losses, one gets insights on systematically improving the manufacturing process. OEE is the best indicator to identify losses, set benchmark targets, and improve the productivity of a manufacturing site. It evaluates performance by focusing on availability of equipment (Utilization), its performance level (Throughput), and the good quality product that it is producing (Yield) during the cycle of operation. This performance indicator provides an important overview of equipment efficiency. An OEE of 100% means that only good parts are produced (100% quality), at the maximum speed (100% performance), and without interruption (100% availability).

Why to Measure OEE?
OEE measurement is a universal key performance indicator (KPI) for businesses across all industries to gauge plant and equipment efficiency. With lean manufacturing programs, measuring OEE can provide insights into areas requiring improvement under the availability, performance and quality parameters. This provides an
opportunity to identify the problem area, benchmark best in class operations and continuously improve the efficiency and productivity of the plant. With increasing cost of operations, it is important for any manufacturing concern to start measuring and improving the OEE to have competitive performance.
