HI,
I am calculating the OEE for one of the machines we have. I am trying to figure the “availability” for the machine.
The shift is 8Hrs. Lunch break is 1 Hr, and setup time for the machine is 1 hr.
1) is the downtime just 1 lunch hr ? or is it 2 hrs(lunch + setup)
availabilty = operating time(OT) / net available time (NAT)
NAT = TOTAL TIME – DOWNTIME (lunch/setup or both??)
CAN I take the OT as the actual machine run time, in the 8 hr period.
Can anyone plz explain how i can calculate the OEE?
Thanks a lot,
Vidya

You’ll probably get a lot of answers, because I’ve seen people calculate it a number of different ways.
If it was me, though, I’d use 8 hours minus lunch as net-available.
My reasoning is that lunch is lunch.  This is time that the machine is scheduled to be down.  Do you ever run the machine during lunch?  Do you have “relievers”? If so, then you may even want to include lunch in the NAT.
So why not include setup time?  My reasoning may be a little “weird”, but I think of setup time as something that I will want to improve (maybe by getting one of the Lean weenies to do some SMED or something).  Therefore, this is time that I would really prefer to be up, but there is something preventing me from doing so.  Notice the dissimilarity from lunch, where I am scheduling the machine to be down.
What I tell people is that Downtime is defined as “time that I wanted to be running but couldn’t”.  If that includes lunch in your calculation, then so be it.  It wouldn’t make it into mine, but everybody does a little different.
My two cents…

Dear Vidya,
My feedback is you need not take Over Time as Machine running time in planning phase since it is not a regular one.
The regular OT is nothing but regular working hours.
8 (Working Hours)-1(Lunch/break etc)-set-up time + OT.
Thanks & Regards,
Senthil

Your query needs to lok right rom its origin…..Why do we calculate OEE ? It is actually the total time availability against which an equipment is compared for its use. You see, Lunch hour is something which can always be overcome by various means but the fact remains – how much was the M/C utilised. Therefore , as done in many industries, OEE gets calculated on 24 Hr basis.
Hope you can appreciate the logic.

That was a very well prepared sheet. Vidya can now prepare a similar sheet with formulas.
Just one input, I would like to add further to what Paul has provided. Under the Availability heading the S1,S5 & S6- it is recommended to capture this under the ” Tool Change-over Time “. If it is a planned repetitive  activity, it is advisable to track that time separately. This will help to get the true picture of your process and also since the Tool change-over time is a tracked separately, you can monitor it separately.
The OEE should typically tell you given the available resources (availability) how are we performing in delivery (Performance efficiency) and Quality (FTT). Keeping this in mind, the OEE calculation methodology can be finalised.

AVY,
From my experience you need to first of all capture as many failure modes in the process OEE as possible over a reasonable period of time. From this data carry out Pareto analysis to identify where the losses are in the availability, performance and quality elements of the OEE. The improvement inititiative will then be focused on those failure modes. If toolchange is one of the 80%ers then focus on that, don’t just do it just for the sake of it.
I had to delete nearly all of the failure modes on the OEE sheet I posted because the file was too big to upload.

I have never said that what u r following is wrong, instead I was just trying to explain Vidya, the OEE concept at an higher level.
What u r following is a very good system, which might work very good for ur organization. I just shared what was being followed in my previous organization. Afterall, we r here to share information.

All advice received are very helpful, but all things said seems be theoretical discussion. If you are just doing a theoretical exercise, they are OK, if you must simulate real work, I think not. For example, lunch break not always must be considered as stop if you have more then one people working in shifts, so also lunch break can be shifted increasing your OEE. You must have a model of your process (people, shift, maintence, etc..)  and then calculate indices.

Peppe,
I don’t think you can increase your OEE by shifting the lunch break unless you are including it as a loss somewhere in the OEE calculation. It would be cheating if you did that and you might even get an OEE rating of over 100% which would be embarrassing;¬) I know because I tried cheating and got caught out in exactly this situation.
Practical application of OEE is easy in this sense. If you have someone working through their lunch break or someone covering for them then all you do is leave the base hours for that particular shift/day as the full amount. The OEE data capture system should be flexible enough to allow this adjustment. From my experience OEE data collection and analysis made manually by the process operators is far more effective than an automated ones that punch out lots of meaningless data.

Paul, OEE (or AE Assett Efficiecy) is AssetUtilization/Asset availability <= 1 (with all subcategories).
It is quite clear that you can manage these data depending on how you manage subcategories, but at least, will be your aoutput to give you the exact value.

Hi
OEE stands for Overall Equipment Effectiveness.
Let me give you a simple example to make you understand how this metric is used.
OEE is a metric typically used in a manufacturing  industry. Let us take an example of a m/c shop, consisting of 10 machines. Now, as a plant manager, you should be in a position to understand – whether you are using this equipments to its planned capacity.
For that you have to calculate the OEE for each of the equipment and check up whether all the equipments are delivering production and quality at the expected performance.

Dear Friend,

As far as availability is concerned
where
here u may take setting time (1hrs) as planned downtime if you donot want to improve on it.

&
remember
OEE= availability*perf. eff.* rate of quality product

Vidya,
As far as the m/c  availabilty is concerned, in my opinion, even lunch and tea time should not be taken as planned downtine. Reason, we can have operator shuttle plan to keep m/c running. One set or one of the opr of that team is sent early and another later to keep the m/c in operation. It will then be actually utilizing the m/c which is true sense of AVAILABILITY.

First OEE is a combination of three distinct calculations:
1) Availability
Availability

A. Total  time available _____min
B. Planned down time(Breaks, meeting, Prev. Maint. …) _____min
C. Run time A-B _____min
D. Unplanned Downtime 1+2+3= _____min
1. Breakdown minutes   _____
2. Change over minutes _____
3. Minor stoppages   _____
E. Net operating time C-D _____min
F. Available Percentage E/C x 100 _____%

2)Performance

G. Processed Amount (total good and bad) _____units
H. Design cycle time(ideal) _____min/unit
I. Performance percentage [(H x G)/E]x100 _____%

3)Quality

Total Rejects _____units
K. Quality Percent [(G-J/G)]x100 _____%
OEE
L. Overall Equipment Effectiveness F x I x K= _____%

You cannot look at OEE in a singular perspective.

Very Good Ron,
In addition to Ron’s formulas. Always use true machine cycle time, not standard hours. If the machine has a true cycle time of 5.0seconds then that is the number that is used for your calculations. If machine availability is 8.0hrs or 16hrs or 24hrs (1,2,or 3 shifts) then you use total time usually calculated in minutes. Also develope downtime codes for the machine. It does no good to track OEE if your not going to collect and pareto downtime in order to develope potential cost saving projects. Also keep in mind that very few companies achieve higher than 83% OEE. Below is a link for Amazon Search for OEE for Operators, This is a great little book that has all the information needed to help start up an OEE program. I also have a spread sheet that makes it very easy to inter OEE data if interested.

The Actual operation time is always calculated when the M/C actually gives output ( Desired Output )
The Set up time & Lunch hour is M/C  ” NOT ” and can’t be considered within the total operational time .
You can increase the M/C operating time by introducing ” Renso  system “( A japanese word means M/C shall not be stopped during Lunch hours and another crew shall operate the M/C when the M/C operators are gone for Lunch. )
Also you can target to reduce the Set up time for increase in total operating hours thus to increase the M/C output .

Avail hrs would br 8 – 1 (lunch) = 7
To get NAT you would need to subtract set up and any other unplanned downtime from the 7 hrs.
OT would be the actual machine run time.

hi,
It is very easy to calculate the OEE.
1:- what is your available time ( no. of hrs x no. of days) A
2:- What are your maint & m/c failures & setup time. (equipment failures) B
3:- what are your process failures.C
4:- what are your prod. & rej.
5:- cycle time of prod.
imagine:=- OEE is Z
if you 3 shift then you have available time:- 21 hrs (1080 min)
your total prod in 3 shift is 900 pc.
first calcuate the available time in :- available time* availabletime-stoppage like m/c fail
then calculate performance totalprod * cycle time*100
then calculate the qc rating:- total prod. -rej / total prod*100
then

multiply all three percentages *100
if any query please call me 9873020590, 0129-2233091, 92, 93(360)
i’ve also programmes of oee.

Would I be able to use OEE with lots or batches? Or is it just for machines and or assembly lines? For example, one lot is scheduled to take 3 hours to complete. We complete anywhere from 3 to 6 a shift. Can I use OEE to determine performance, quality, etc.?
Thanks

#155176

Yes, but you must know the exact cyctle time of the batch. What is the design rate of running the batch? Is the design rate 3hours or 3hours 10mins 45 sec?
You can mold OEE to fit your needs but keep in mind small changes in cycle time in your calculation greatly affect the outcome.

Hi Duncan,
The format is textbook Nakajima as stated in my first message in this thread. Setting it up in Excel is pretty easy so you shouldnt have any probs. Also, setting it up will help you understand the important relationships between Availability, Performance & Quality.
Good luck

The design rate is 3 hours. The OEE site has the excel file where you can just plug in your numbers but again there is no provision for anything else but PPM?

Respected Sir,
Plz provide me solution for the following problem asap.
Coursework 1
Background
The company manufactures a range of specialist radiator and heat exchangers. A Key
component of all products is the metallic core tubing. Every product range contains
these items. The company produces these tubes on a single machine. Due to the
criticality of this equipment it is important to increase its effectiveness.
The process itself entails two raw material types, depending on product (brass or tin).
Reels of raw material are loaded to the rear, and fed through the machine. The raw
material is then folded, welded and cut to the required length, so producing the
finished component.
Current situation
The company has designed a data collection chart and instructed operators to collect
data. Currently there is one weeks worth of data collected. No corrective action has
been taken.
All breaks are covered (the machine is planned to run continuously)
The shift starts at 8am and finishes at 4pm
A set-up is defined as a change of material or cutters (or both)
Speed is recorded digitally and reported as an average over the shift.

you can not take set up time as a down time because during set up you can not run the machine. It can not be eliminated or made zero.

See the formula below for calculating OEE

The Formulas
As described in World Class OEE, the OEE calculation is based on the three OEE Factors: Availability, Performance, and Quality. Here’s how each of these factors is calculated.
Availability
Availability takes into account Down Time Loss, and is calculated as:

Availability = Operating Time / Planned Production Time
Performance
Performance takes into account Speed Loss, and is calculated as:

Performance = Ideal Cycle Time / (Operating Time / Total Pieces)
Ideal Cycle Time is the minimum cycle time that your process can be expected to achieve in optimal circumstances. It is sometimes called Design Cycle Time, Theoretical Cycle Time or Nameplate Capacity.Since Run Rate is the reciprocal of Cycle Time, Performance can also be calculated as:

Performance = (Total Pieces / Operating Time) / Ideal Run Rate
Performance is capped at 100%, to ensure that if an error is made in specifying the Ideal Cycle Time or Ideal Run Rate the effect on OEE will be limited.
Quality
Quality takes into account Quality Loss, and is calculated as:

Quality = Good Pieces / Total Pieces
OEE
OEE takes into account all three OEE Factors, and is calculated as:

OEE = Availability x Performance x Quality
It is very important to recognize that improving OEE is not the only objective. Take a look at the following data for two production shifts.

OEE Factor

Shift 1

Shift 2

Availability

95.0%

Performance

Hi,
In an 8 hr shift, You have to take both Lunch break and Setup time to calculate OEE. Even Lunch break is a planned shut down, You need to utilise this one to improve OEE and Delivery rate. And you have to reduce your Setup time as low as possible with the help of SMED (less than 3 mins).
But some of the companies has not taking into cosider lunch break. You should have to be improved continuously.

Availability = Operating time / Net available time.
Net Available time = Total shift time- set up time-lunch time or simply put the net time the machine was planned to manufacture.
There are 2 levels of process improvements
1.increase the total operating time by eliminating waiting time for material, operator etc
2.decrease the setup time so both the numerator, denominator increases.
hope this helps.

OEE wud be overall equipment efficiency, its a product of machine efficiency, performance efficiency and quality (Quantified data).
Lunch hours, break where other worker can support shall not be counted into downtime becase actually that time production is not stopped – this is the only case where you have multiple shifts. In case you have planned lunch with no production then lunch time shoud be considered for downtime because OEE relates to machine.
I guess the calculation are well described in many posts and i appreciate those guys effort.

kindly mail be on [email protected] for any further clarification.

Note – How to calculate the performance for the day.
e.g.
Die No       Push Time      Qty/Tray  Total cycles Total Time

Secondly, even if he is a student who is struggling to understand the fundamental concepts of process measurement and continuous improvement, then I’m happy to help as well, again if I am able to do so with minimal effort.
Finally, no I won’t help with your homework, because you are clearly an unpleasant individual with nothing better to do than flaunt your (alleged) credentials and snipe four year old posts.
But thank you very much for your valuable contribution. (That was sarcasm, just in case you were too tired to think about it.  I know how mind-numbing it can be to live in Wisconsin.)

TD TUBE MACHINE O.E.E. DATA
Friday

Coursework 1
Background
The company manufactures a range of specialist radiator and heat exchangers. A Key
component of all products is the metallic core tubing. Every product range contains
these items. The company produces these tubes on a single machine. Due to the
criticality of this equipment it is important to increase its effectiveness.
The process itself entails two raw material types, depending on product (brass or tin).
Reels of raw material are loaded to the rear, and fed through the machine. The raw
material is then folded, welded and cut to the required length, so producing the
finished component.
Current situation
The company has designed a data collection chart and instructed operators to collect
data. Currently there is one weeks worth of data collected. No corrective action has
been taken.
All breaks are covered (the machine is planned to run continuously)
The shift starts at 8am and finishes at 4pm
A set-up is defined as a change of material or cutters (or both)
Speed is recorded digitally and reported as an average over the shift.
1 Calculate the daily availability, performance, quality and OEE figures (state any
2 Pareto analyse the losses.
