In Lean Six Sigma, OEE stands for Overall Equipment Effectiveness, and is generally considered to refer to a measurement in “Total Productive Maintenance” programs. The measure looks at effectiveness and efficiency of machinery or processes and is commonly referred to in reference to Lean Manufacturing.
OEE seeks to answer three machine performance related questions:
- How often is the machine available to run?
- How fast does it run when it’s running?
- How many acceptable parts were produced in the allotted time?
The formula used to calculate OEE is as follows:
OEE = Availability x Performance x Quality
Description of OEE Calculator
The OEE Calculator helps business leaders and managers estimate the Overall Equipment Effectiveness of their machinery and processes based on a high level analysis of Availability, Performance and Quality. The calculator takes inputs as the three key variables which determine machinery effectiveness and then multiply them together to get an overall OEE score (typically shown as a percentage). When considering how best to calculate and measure OEE, remember that the key to accurate data collection is using a consistent and standard definition for each of the key metrics.
