Equipment Effectiveness

Objectively evaluate and purposefully increase effectiveness.

Cosmino OEE

The Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a key figure, which describes the effectiveness of the complete production process. It is calculated by multiplying three factors:

  • Availability   (losses such as unplanned system downtimes)
  • Output rate  (deviations from the planned target  performance), and
  • Quality rate  (scrap)

Using the OEE key figure you can assess your own effectiveness relative to a defined ideal state at a glance.
Typically, downtimes and their causes are documented, optimization potentials are exposed, and quality losses are documented.

Areas of Application

Overall Equipment Effectiveness commonly known as OEE is a key indicator which describes the effectiveness of your complete production process. It is also an important tool when focusing on Continuous Improvement, Lean Manufacturing or TPM. Tracking and evaluating OEE helps in identifying hidden capacity and cost drivers. It also actively involves the whole production team in continuously improving end-to-end production processes.
