Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) Dashboard

Our OEE dashboard is a great tool to identify equipment availability, performance, and quality. There are many benefits to tracking OEE such as:  

  • Focus on eliminating problem areas
  • Reduce waste, scrap, and rework costs
  • Minimizing idling time and stops on your production lines
  • Reduce equipment costs
  • Increased labor efficiency 

OEE will showcase what impact even the slightest changes make on firms operating effectiveness. It will help identify areas that need to gain the most improvement based on the data produced by Paper-Less MES.
