Overall Line Efficiency (OLE)

In just a few words: Overall line efficiency, or OLE, is a metric used in a number of different manufacturing verticals.

What is Overall Line Efficiency (OLE)?

Overall line efficiency, or OLE, is a metric used in a number of different manufacturing verticals. As an efficiency metric, OLE calculates both the quality and the quantity of product you generate, set against the time and resources needed to generate it

As an efficiency metric, OLE calculates both the quality and the quantity of product you generate, set against the time and resources needed to generate it.

OLE is connected to overall equipment effectiveness, or OEE, which measures the productivity of equipment. Like OEE, OLE is expressed as a percentage.

OLE takes OEE a step further to measure the efficiency of a complete process, or an entire plant, encompassing complex systems. It’s intended to monitor the efficiency of machines working in a series as part of continuous line manufacturing, unlike OEE which is aimed at tracking individual machines. Sometimes, OLE includes employee efficiency as well as equipment efficiency, since workers are also part of the production process.
