Overall Equipment Effectiveness Measurement Tool OEE

The overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) measurement tool assists manufacturers in maintaining peak equipment efficiency by acquiring real-time production data. Analyzing and reporting data helps in increasing the throughput and efficiency in simple to complex packaging operations while decreasing costs.

This automated tool continuously logs data to automatically generate reports about the three major OEE parameters – availability, performance and quality.

  • Availability – equipment failures or process failures that stop planned production.
  • Performance – substandard materials or operator inefficiencies that cause operations to be at less than the maximum possible speeds.
  • Quality – produced pieces that do not meet either production plant or customer quality standards and require rework.

The OEE tool has the ability to translate the real-time data captured from the equipment into the three different parameters. When analyzing the data customers can easily determine which parameter is affecting OEE the most, availability, performance or quality. Visual aids such as graphs and filters are used in presenting the data to different personnel levels. After the sources of inefficiencies are identified, customers can focus on the remedies for failure points and bottlenecks, which in turn, increases production.

The OEE tool is available with our 1500 series of Weigh Price Labelers and CS100 In-Motion Case Scales. To learn more about the OEE tool, please click on the thumbnail images below.
