What is considered a good OEE?
The answer to what is considered good OEE may vary from industry to industry and the product that is manufactured. For example, in the food and beverage industry, anything over 90% may be considered good while in an assembly line manufacturing company, 60% may be considered a strong OEE.
OEE indicator may be hugely dependent on production characteristics. Although 90% may seem like a high number in FMCG, an improvement of even 2% may play a huge role in production total efficiency, where as in discrete manufacturing it will just minor progress.
On the other hand, the implementation of OEE software may cause the OEE factor to drop significantly due to many causes which you can read more about in this article: Why does OEE drop after MES implementation?

How to manage reworks in production?
Let’s be honest – the term “rework” is most commonly associated with delays in production. Technically speaking, rework means correcting failed, defective, non-conforming items. It
How to effectively monitor production progress in real-time?
The tracking of changes in production – progress, lead times, possible sources of delays – plays a particularly important role in the industry. Delivering products
Operational efficiency, or OEE, is an indicator that measures production efficiency for an organization. It is a measure that shows how well an organization is doing in terms of productivity, quality and equipment availability. The three main components of this indicator are productivity: the number of products produced per unit of time; quality: the number of defective products per unit of time; and availability: the number of available machines per unit of time. Existing formulas for OEE, allow a simplified way to calculate the efficiency of a line in a given plant.
There are many factors that affect the OEE of a manufacturing process. Some include an unstable process, excessive downtime and lack of reliable KPIs. Others relate to the human factor, where untrained operators can slow down the changeover process or cause additional defects. The list of factors is long, but all of them can be eliminated through efficient implementation of modern measurement technologies and improved production processes on the manufacturing line.

What is OEE (Overall Equipment Efficiency)?
What is OEE and what it depends on? OEE, or Overall Equipment Efficiency, is an indicator used to measure the efficiency of managing the capabilities of equipment used in manufacturing plants. The aim is to make maximum use of the available machine time to manufacture products of the best possible quality. OEE is made up of three different factors.
- Availability – the ratio of planned working time to actual time taken to complete a task. Availability is reduced as a result of breakdowns, micro-downtimes and the time needed for changeovers and machine set-up.
- Performance – the ratio of available time to actual working time. Performance is reduced when the speed of operations is lower than assumed.
- Quality – the ratio of the number of good products suitable for further distribution to all components manufactured.
The aim of businesses is to achieve and maintain the indicator at the highest possible level. Average companies manage to achieve an OEE of around 60%. The best-organised companies can boast a score of around 85%, with the greatest attention always focused on the best possible quality factor.
What can you do to be among the most effective plants? The first step to understanding the productivity level is to start measurements. How to monitor OEE automatically in real-time?. The solution is OEE software. OEE software is a modern system whose task is to constantly monitor all processes that take place on the production line. How is the overall equipment efficiency (OEE) measured? After connecting to the devices, OEE system collects information about the real time of the cycle, enables an accurate description of the machine states during the shift, and defect reporting (manufactured items are OK / NOK). Based on these data, the OEE is calculated. The OEE system indicates things to improve and sends notifications in real time.
Where is OEE software used?
OEE software is widely used in manufacturing. It is used by the electronics, automotive, aviation, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and machines industries – in these and many other industrial plants, manufacturers welcome the use of OEE. MES, the manufacturing execution system, also takes this data, collects and uses it for further analysis, which improves processes and increases the efficiency of the production process. MES collects more information about the process and allows to manage the reworks. The qualitative data are necessary to generate SPC reports. MES also enables paperless production and traceability. OEE tracking software is one of the most fundamental investments being made by modern businesses.
OEE ratio monitoring
How does the OEE monitoring system work? Machine Connectivity connects the machines to the plant’s internal network. The data is read and processed by OEE software. Production Execution allows the monitoring of production plan execution in real-time. The system checks the production progress on an ongoing basis, and thanks to Defect Handling, it can also report faults. The system will show the cause of these defects. OEE Analysis module shows KPIs along with availability, performance and quality. This information allows you to establish overall equipment efficiency and then the action plan for your production facility. The obtained score of overall equipment efficiency (OEE) indicates whether the current production process allows achieving maximum efficiency, or whether some aspects need improvement. Thanks to Digital Documentation, all documentation is paperless and all messages are displayed on machine monitors. The Maintenance ANDON module allows you to quickly and easily communicate with the maintenance department. Digital communication as well as a history of faults and actions taken are stored in the system.
And how does the OEE system know what the highest possible machinery effectiveness is? The client decides what standard of OEE will be satisfactory and how exactly he wants to calculate it.
There is another major advantage that OEE software provides – the manager gets information about irregularities in real time and knows the current overall equipment efficiency (OEE). There are no delays due to the delivery of paper documentation, and access to reports is remote. As a result, it is possible to react in time to complete the production plan on time.
OEE allows not only a quick overview of processes running in real time but also of those that have been already completed. In this way, it is possible to check whether a failure has occurred, how quick the response time was and what the cause of the downtime was. By comparing current and historical orders, the trend of OEE can be checked to know what is causing productivity to decline.
OEE system – possible integrations
OEE Performance Monitoring is not just about checking one indicator. Growing businesses benefit from a comprehensive range of manufacturing management systems. The systems can be integrated with each other. OEE effectively exchanges data, especially with ERP system.
What for? By integrating the systems, you will avoid double reporting involved in downloading data from several programs. Each of them is connected to the main system, receives the same information and uses it in a specific way. Additionally, it can analyse the information and exchange it with the rest of the network.
Your OEE – benefits for your company
OEE software enables the collection of correct production data and tracking the condition of machines and the progress of production in real-time. Each factor that could delay production is notified. The collected data and generated reports indicate areas that require improvement for production to proceed as planned. It ensures that overall equipment efficiency is maintained at the highest level.
By achieving high OEE, overall equipment is utilised in the plant in the most optimal way and the shop floor of customers is filled with full-quality products delivered on time.
This is what causes your factory to start ignition. OEE builds the image of a perfect supplier.
