Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is regarded as one of the most critical metrics for measuring manufacturing productivity. A high OEE score means you’re creating quality parts as fast as possible with minimal stop times.
Some manufacturers struggle to calculate OEE at all. Legacy software doesn’t have the sophistication to collect accurate data from your assets, machines and product lines. Manually assembling this information takes time away from other essential tasks and is susceptible to human error.
The only reliable method of calculating OEE is through utilizing enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. YGL ERP4.0 serves as a central hub for enterprise data from the top floor to the shop floor.
YGL ERP4.0 developed cutting-edge tools to their solutions, manufacturers not only gain a more accurate picture of OEE but also discover new methods to optimize productivity.
YGL ERP4.0 Solutions provides more transparency to manufacturing process, performance, machine optimization, and production quality, giving you visibility to on how best to optimise and maximise productivity. Efficiency is a huge competitive advantage. Focusing on Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) we can look at how this data can give you accurate measures on:
Monitor run time along with shift changes, breakdowns, and overall production counts of cartons.
Count pieces and compare count output with available capacity, charting speed, time, and quality.
Monitor overall production counts for good and bad Product. YGL ERP4.0 separates make-ready waste counts from good run counts then stores data for analytics and reporting.
OEE is calculated by multiplying the percent of the time that manufacturing machinery is available by production performance (ideal cycle time x total count/run-time and product quality (goods count / total count)). An OEE score of around 80-85% is generally considered to reflect a world-class manufacturing operation.
