What is OEE (Overall Equipment Efficiency)? Why should we measure it?

  • Accurate calculation methods
  • Indicators that are closed to interpretation and do not cause concept confusion.
  • Observing the cumulative results of interdisciplinary studies.
  • Observing the effects of the sub-concepts that interact and form the OEE value on each other.
  • Observing how much of the Machine Capacity is actually utilized
  • Observation of the impact of quality and performance parameters on machine capacity and net uptime. 
  • Observing the impact of 8 major losses on the production process.
  • Analytical observation of targeted and actual production values 

Machine utilization performance of companies across Turkey is around 50% when measured by OEE method. 
This result means that you cannot use your machines the remaining 50% of the time.
