Understanding & improving OEE - a total approach to maximizing operational performance.

OEE Optimization

Beyond Maintenance: Overall Equipment Effectiveness

There are many issues other than downtime that limit Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). While unacceptable levels of downtime can often be addressed through Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Optimized PMs, Predictive Maintenance (PdM) and Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA), there are many other physical and policy-based issues which may be choking your throughput and elevating costs.


Factors that cause poor OEE :
  • Higher production overtime

  • Scheduled downtime equipment-access issues

  • Deferred proactive maintenance

  • Higher reactive maintenance levels

  • Increased unplanned jobs with higher mean time to repair

  • Maintenance & operational conflicts

  • Aging backlog

  • Elevated maintenance overtime costs

How We Can Help

With a blended approach of constraint management coupled with LEAN principles, we determine the problems & identify corrective actions through tracking specific loss data:

  • Downtime

  • Operational changes 

  • Performance issues

  • Minor stoppages

  • Overall quality levels 


Predictive Service's OEE Optimization includes:


  • Streamline your operations

  • Eliminate issues which are perpetuating other issues or problems 

  • Develop a better educated, more-skilled team 

  • Lasting change with continued results long after the initial improvements
