Overall equipment effectiveness

ABB’s overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) module is a real time performance measurement and analysis software solution that improves plant productivity by identifying ways to increase OEE.

OEE is a standard industry KPI for measuring productivity. It consists of three components, availability, performance and quality, and suits any industry or process. By automatically collecting data from installed machines and equipment or by manual operator inputs, OEE can be calculated and visualized in real time.

With ABB’s OEE module, manufacturers can find potential for improvement and prioritize actions to increase production efficiency. It supports the implementation of productivity improvement programs and provides tools for analyzing the impact of improvement actions. For example, it can be used to evaluate the effect of an organizational change or new equipment on productivity and to motivate production teams to exceed targets and maximize utilization, uptime and quality.

As OEE offers a standardized method of measuring productivity, it can also be used for benchmarking and unbiased comparison of different production lines within a company.

The OEE module includes trends, process diagrams and reports to monitor, analyze and report production efficiency.

Key benefits include:

  • Help in identifying opportunities for improving productivity
  • Visualization of production and efficiency in a standard, easy to understand format
  • Real time performance measurement enabling early intervention
