OEE: The Premier Manufacturing KPI

Do you know your score?

OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is one of the most powerful and yet deceptively complex tools in any manufacturers’ arsenal for improving operational efficiency. Overall effectiveness is the relation between what theoretically could be produced at the end of a process and what actually came out. InSource helps you automate real-time OEE calculations and leverage that knowledge for dramatic results.

Our OEE solution also enables existing ERP & manufacturing systems to work in a loosely coupled, complementary fashion. As compared to manual production tracking systems, these solutions reduce errors from manual / duplicate work transposing data (items, orders, BoM’s, actuals, etc.)  allowing your team to reduce Losses from downtime, improve utilization, and meet production targets.

Coupled with the InSource System for Management, OEE dashboards provide reliable information for Operations & CI, and Root Cause Analysis(RCA) teams. Manual & Automated Data is combined in Pareto-style reporting highlighting Downtime Reasons and giving real-time visibility into line and equipment performance and utilization.

Manufacturing Line Optimization (MLO) is a "System for Management." In concept, it is NOT really anything new...However, it gives us consistent metrics, processes, capabilities, and tools across all of our plants. And it works.
