Performance . . . downtime . . . quality . . . availability . . . defects . . . How well do you know your machines? Do you truly know how substantial your equipment-related losses are? Calculating overall equipment effectiveness is a crucial element of any serious commitment to reduce equipment- and process-related wastes through Total Productive Maintenance and other lean manufacturing methods. Success with TPM, in particular, depends on consistently and accurately measuring machine and process performance. OEE Toolkit: Practical Software for Measuring Overall Equipment Effectiveness provides detailed information daily on how effectively your machines are running by quantifying and visually highlighting where losses in availability, speed, and quality occur and how they impact overall equipment effectiveness. This calculation, made easy by the OEE Toolkit software, provides a powerful performance measurement on which you can base systematic, focused improvement efforts.

Capturing and processing performance data on critical machines is challenging. Daily data collection and analysis often involve time-consuming and costly processes. Now, Productivity's OEE Toolkit eliminates most of the burden of data processing. The OEE Toolkit's emphasis on visual management helps you get more information from collected data. You enter very small amounts of data, the OEE Toolkit does the calculations and analysis for you, and you get more information about your machine performance than you ever thought possible.

In today's competitive environment you cannot settle for a goal less ambitious than the total elimination of breakdowns and other losses. You can't improve what you don't measure, and OEE is a powerful indicator of where your losses are occurring. The fine-tuned, automated analysis of the OEE Toolkit pinpoints where to make improvements that will significantly impact your bottom line. There are no excuses for ineffective equipment, only causes. Expose those causes and root them out today with the OEE Toolkit.

Key Benefits:

  • One universal tool -- processes information about machines through the same interface (Basic package covers 10 machines)
  • Calculates losses in availability, performance, and quality
  • Easy to learn and use
