Topics are organized into three areas:
|Understand||Understand how OEE and the Six Big Losses work together to create an information foundation that identifies all your equipment-based losses to productivity.|
|Measure||Measure and calculate OEE with practical advice on how to measure OEE for your application, as well as how to extend OEE to measure utilization and capacity through TEEP.|
|Improve||Learn a simple yet very effective OEE improvement methodology as well as insights as to what world-class OEE really means and insights on how you can leverage the Six Big Losses in your improvement program.|
If you have any questions, we encourage you to contact us. We enjoy helping others – and your questions help us to continually improve this site.
Six Big Losses
A Foundation for Action
The Six Big Losses extend the three OEE losses to a larger and more actionable set of losses that are universal to virtually all discrete manufacturing operations. Each OEE loss aligns to two Six Big Losses and this page covers them all.
Drive Improvement on the Factory Floor
OEE is traditionally used as a “rearview mirror” metric. Enable your teams to become more proactive and to “win their shift” by measuring OEE and other KPIs in real-time, and by providing actionable feedback to the plant floor.
Transform Information into Results
Most companies place too much emphasis on results (the OEE Score) and too little emphasis on the factors that drive results: Information (OEE and Six Big Losses), Decisions (selecting which loss to address and how to address it), and Action (taking action to transform decisions into results). This is our favorite page – it’s a practical way to quickly get results.
