Manufacturing operations can underperform due to a range of issues such as equipment and labor availability, longer cycle times, uneven production balancing, and quality issues. This directly impacts Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) - the main metric used to measure the percentage of manufacturing time that is truly productive - which is dependent upon availability (uptime), performance (speed) and quality (good parts).
OEE improvements depend upon access to real-time, reliable and actionable data. Providing real-time insights into manufacturing process performance creates opportunities to make better decisions and take actions more quickly while also establishing a pattern of continuous learning and improvement across the organization.
We help our clients improve OEE by bringing visibility, accountability and continuous improvement to the production floor with real-time monitoring of assets via digital dashboards.
