Topic: Increasing Overall Equipment Effectiveness Starts with Change Management

Knowing why overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) increases is just as important as why it decreases. Manufacturing analytics and a visual representation of the factory floor work together to identify areas of improvement. Change doesn’t just happen through the data though, it takes a shift in management to use these insights to make actionable decisions. Mingo Smart Factory has worked with hundreds of manufacturers to discover seven fool proof ways to increase OEE. Communication, scoreboards, collecting pertinent data and a commitment to continuous improvement are the key to improving OEE.

How OEE Software Enhances Operational Efficiency

By continuously monitoring key metrics such as availability, performance, and quality, businesses can proactively identify issues and take corrective actions promptly. This proactive approach minimizes downtimereduces waste, and improves overall equipment effectiveness.

For example, imagine a manufacturing plant that utilizes OEE software to monitor its production line. The software tracks the availability of each machine, the speed at which they operate, and the quality of the output. If a machine experiences a sudden drop in performance, the software immediately alerts the maintenance team, allowing them to address the issue before it leads to a complete breakdown. This proactive maintenance approach not only saves time and resources but also ensures uninterrupted production.

Furthermore, OEE software enables businesses to analyze historical data and identify patterns or recurring issues that may hinder efficiency. By understanding the root causes of inefficiencies, organizations can implement targeted improvements and optimize their operations. This continuous improvement cycle helps businesses achieve higher levels of operational efficiency over time.
