To get a correct picture of production loss, a reliable registration program is indispensable.
Traditional yield calculations do not reflect the improvement potential.
actware Production is OEE software that reads machine data, compares the results with the production schedule and illustrates where and why production loss has occurred.
Analyzing correct and reliable data offers the opportunity to make the right decisions, on the way to a success story.
Machines who produce loss-free have an OEE of 100%.
OEE can be expressed as the product of the availability of the machine, the performance of the machine (speed of production) and the quality of the articles produced.
OEE=Availability Level x Performance Level x Quality Level.
In general, the aim is to achieve an OEE of 80%-85%. Our practical experience teaches us that most companies achieve an OEE of 45%-55% at start-up and can evolve to an OEE of 70%-80%.
One must be aware of the machine losses in order to be able to reduce them. Machine losses arise both planned and unplanned due to standstills, changeover times and quality losses.
With the Pareto chart included in our reporting, you can make analyzes on the 20% most important causes of failures that lead to 80% of the consequences.
