Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

In just a few words: OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is the gold standard for measuring manufacturing productivity.

What is a Overall Equipment Effectiveness?

OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is one of the most frequently used terms on the shop floor. It  is one of the fundamental concepts in lean manufacturing and a key performance driver for any production plant, production unit, workshop or individual station.

Having a high OEE is a mark of a highly efficient factory with high productivity. A low OEE, on the other hand, means there is a “hidden factory” with unused resources that are producing losses where there should be value.
