A customer, I’ll call him Fred, mentioned to me that executive management often discounts OEE because it is a manufacturing metric, not a business metric. Let’s take this point.
In addition to the three main components of OEE - Availability, Performance and Quality - described in "OEE as a performance KPI"
, there is also the concept of a OEE as a business KPI. "Business OEE" multiplies OEE
by the Planning Factor (Pf)
which describes the extent that available time has been utilized for production purposes.
