Increasing an overall equipment effectiveness visibility and analyzing in a manufacturing industry



The exploration for improving productivity in the current global competitive environment has created a need for rigorously defined performance measurement system in a manufacturing process. OEE, a vital KPI of TPM is used to evaluate performance and productivity of the machine. OEE is one of the performance evaluation methods that are most common and popular in the production industries. This paper tries to evaluate the OEE of machines in a valve manufacturing and identifies the main loss elements of the process. An application had been created for continuous data collection. OEE data on machine performance is an initial key point to understand the equipment losses and establish improvement to eliminate them. The results are compared with world class level. Result of the research demonstrates that although the OEE coefficient of the investigated process is not meeting the world class level, however with the continuous improvement, performance of the machine can be acceptable.
