Why does it matter? analyticskpimetricsoeeope Share Facebook 2 Answers Voted Oldest Recent Ali 12 Questions 8 Answers 3 Best Answers 77 Points View Profile Best Answer Ali Member Added an answer on 12/12/2018 at 11:18 am The OEE index is the product from the availability, performance and quality key performance indicators. The availability depends on the operating states and is the quotient from production time / scheduled operating time. Performance is an actual/target comparison of the time per unit. Quality is determined by the quality types (yield, scrap, rework) and is the quotient from yield quantity / total quantity output. The OPE index is calculated as the product from the production process ratio, performance rate and quality key performance indicators. The production process ratio is the product of throughput efficiency, process availability and setup reduction rate. The performance rate is an actual/target comparison of the time per unit. Quality is determined by the quality types (yield, scrap, rework) and is the quotient from yield quantity / total quantity. 1 Reply Melanie Ravensburg, Germany 16 Questions 8 Answers 0 Best Answers 182 Points View Profile Melanie Senior Member Added an answer on 12/12/2018 at 11:26 am OEE is a metric used to calculate and score all the elements of machine effectiveness in the manufacturing process. It combines availability, utilization, production, and quality metrics into the score. It is supposed to summarize the efficiency of a machine, cell, or production line during the manufacturing process. OPE stands for Overall Production Effectiveness. The biggest difference between OPE and OEE is that OPE includes disconnected elements that may not be included in OEE calculations. This means that it includes activities like selective procedures and manual processes that don’t include the machines themselves or may not apply to every product in a production run. 0 Reply Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
