Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is the best measure of manufacturing performance. For production to achieve an OEE score of 100% means that all goods produced meet 100% of the quality plan requirements, are made as fast as is possible and with no downtime.
OEE is calculated by multiplying its 3 factors: availability, performance, and quality.
The OEE system module available in Lighthouse MES automates the collection and tracking of Downtime, Production Count and Waste to calculate manufacturing OEE in real-time at the production process level.
The OEE system module generates dashboards of accurate manufacturing performance metrics (KPIs), available to users throughout the factory and on any device.
See how manufacturers are using the OEE module of Lighthouse MES software and to what benefit:
►Le Bélier case study
