How OEE can help you improve your Lean & Sustainable Manufacturing K.P.I.’s

Did you know that at least 40% of planned production time is wasted?

A typical manufacturing plant only uses 60% of planned production time effectively leaving a substantial 40% going to waste. The main areas affected include equipment, energy, water, raw material, product and human resources. These losses can present significant challenges when it comes to managing Lean and Sustainability K.P.I’s.

“While it has many functions, the core role of OEE and premium OEE software solution (PerformOEE™) is to provide you with an in-depth insight into your entire manufacturing process” says Arthur Stone, OEEsystems International CEO and OEE expert.” Put simply, OEE measures the gap between the actual performance and the potential performance of a manufacturing unit and focusses on the elimination of waste. It also enables you to drive the improvement of your manufacturing K.P.I’s”.

Increasingly, a significant number of manufacturers are realising the considerable environmental and competitive benefits from Sustainable Manufacturing practices. This has led to the appointment of Senior Sustainability Managers and Directors across the sector. In addition, companies now consider a suppliers green and competitive credentials as a key factor when choosing who to do business with.

“As a consequence, the world’s most competitive and progressive manufacturing businesses are now using OEE in conjunction with OEE Software solutions to set, verify and achieve measurable and meaningful Lean and Sustainability targets, and most importantly eradicate waste” says Stone.
