How to Enhance Manufacturing Efficiency with Trinetra tSense’s OEE Solutions

Manufacturing has always been a contributor to a country’s economic growth and in the manufacturing sector efficiency is a critical factor. It’s not just about producing goods; it’s about optimizing every aspect of the production process to be viable and sustainable. One crucial metric that aids in this optimization is Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). Here we will delve into the definition, factors and calculation of OEE to get a good understanding of its significance in enhancing productivity.

OEE Calculation in Manufacturing:

OEE is a holistic measure of productivity of a manufacturing operation, encompassing availability, performance, and quality. Calculating OEE involves considering three factors:

Availability: This factor accounts for the time equipment is available for production compared to the total scheduled production time.

Performance: Performance measures the speed at which equipment operates compared to its maximum designed speed.

Quality: Quality reflects the ratio of good products produced to the total products manufactured, considering both rejected and reworked items.

To calculate OEE, one can use the formula: OEE = Availability × Performance × Quality. By multiplying these factors, manufacturers gain insights into their operational efficiency and identify areas for improvement and correction.

To illustrate with an example:

Suppose a manufacturing facility operates for 24 hours a day. During this time, the equipment is available for 20 hours, operates at 80% of its maximum speed, and produces 900 good products out of 1000 total products. Using the OEE formula:

OEE = (20/24) × (0.8) × (900/1000) = 0.6

In the above scenario, the OEE is 60%, indicating there is room for improvement to maximize efficiency.
