  • Are you having diffculty getting the best out of your manufacturing equipment?
  • Is meeting the production output target a constant struggle?
  • Do you have difficulty accounting for lost capacity from your production equipment?

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) might just be the solution you need.

OEE was developed in the 1960s as a metric to evaluate how effectively a manufacturing operation is being optimized. Today, OEE is widely used as a metric to coordinate production strategies and propel manufacturing optimization through production planning, machine reliability, quality and productivity improvements. Implementing OEE on the shop-floor is complex and considers multiple machines types with variable run-times. A structured approach is needed to determine the availability and performance for multiple machine types, even in cases where some machines are running while others remain idle.

This compact one-day course gives due attention to detailed clarification of the elements of OEE that are involved in value creation. It enables the organisation to understand the waste and loss in terms of equipment optimization, and points towards improvement initiatives that can impact the bottom line.

Special note to Automotive Industry Manufacturers: As per the IATF 16949:2016 requirements clause, organizations that intend  to be certified to IATF 16949:2016  are required to practice total productive maintenance, and establish maintenance objectices such as OEE.  This programme provides a good foundation into understanding OEE, how it is calculated and how to set objectives.

  • To explain the purpose of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) as a metric
  • To clarify the correlation between equipment losses and OEE
  • To explain how OEE is monitored and measured accurately

Upon completion of this programme, participants would be able to :
  • Set-up a system to monitor and track OEE accurately
  • Calculate the OEE at the equipment level, line level and process level

  • The Definition of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
    • The origin of OEE as a metric
    • Effectiveness versus Efficiency
  • The 8 major equipment losses
  • Exercise : Basic OEE calculation
  • The 3 elements of OEE
    • Availability
    • Performance
    • Quality
  • How to set OEE target on a year to year basis
  • Detailed methodology on how to track and monitor OEE considering:
    • Multiple machines/lines with different downtime and uptime
    • Various operating times which may include Overtime (OT)
    • Definition of Planned Downtime Vs Unplanned Downtime
  • Template for OEE tracking and monitoring
    • Machine Level / Assembly Line Level
    • Process Level
    • Types of downtime
    • OEE versus Utilization
  • Group Workshop: OEE tracking and calculation
  • Implementing OEE system
  • Conclusion
Supervisors, engineers, maintenance and production personnel responsible for ensuring optimum utilization of the organisation’s process equipment.
All Neville-Clarke tutors are full time consultants and trainers.  The tutor assigned is an experienced professional with practical application of the subject matter, who will be able to explain and provide guidance on the use of OEE to optimize equipment in the organisation.

This is a one day course running from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm.
