Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) as an essential component of your efficient production
Data-driven decisions for effective control of your production processes.
The smart2i IoT solution gives companies a solid foundation for analysis by integrating store floor data collection and recording quality data and machine data. Production metrics such as overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) are a prerequisite for data-driven decisions. The result is effective control of your production processes: smart2i helps optimize your operations, reduce costs and improve quality.
Systematic data acquisition as the basis for analyses
smart2i helps to record machine data, operating data and quality data continuously. The integration of sensors and machine data into production monitoring enables the recording of important performance indicators. Data from existing applications such as store floor data collection or ERP systems can also be transferred. Individual dashboards are used to clearly display real-time data, such as:
- Machine running times
- Production speeds
- Material consumption
- Quality deviations
Data analysis as the basis for optimization measures in production management
By analyzing the recorded data, smart2i can provide companies with valuable insights into their operations. For your manufacturing management, you can identify bottlenecks, efficiency problems and quality deviations. With these insights, companies can take targeted measures to increase productivity, minimize downtime, reduce material waste and improve product quality.
Key figure for production monitoring: OEE
OEE stands for Overall Equipment Effectiveness. This is a key figure for the efficiency and productivity of production equipment. It is used to quantify the performance of a machine or an entire production line. As shown in the individual dashboard (left), OEE is calculated using three main factors:
- % Availability
- % Performance
- % Quality
The factors are multiplied to determine overall effectiveness. A high OEE number indicates that the plant is operating efficiently and achieving maximum utilization.
OEE always in view thanks to smart2i
Would you like to calculate your overall plant effectiveness? The combination of IoT and store floor data collection (SFDC) and other applications through smart2i enables companies to continuously monitor and improve OEE metrics in production. Real-time data collection and analysis on customized dashboards allows you to quickly respond to performance issues and proactively take action to optimize asset efficiency. This leads to higher overall plant effectiveness, improved business results, and increased competitiveness.
