Analyses and improvement actions
After a period of collecting information by downtime registration, this information can be analyzed using simple but powerful analysis tools. The OEE module quickly shows how effective the organisation operates and where the most improvement potential lies. The powerful analysis tools easily track down the biggest root causes of your downtime. Different graphs based on different parameters can be made to the smallest details and different time frames: Pareto analyses, trend analyses and predictions based on the existing data. This can be done periodically.
The manager sees which (machine)part of production causes the most downtime, or has a failure most often. This way he can figure out what the real problem is. The real problem does not have to be technical, like damaged parts, but can also be internal logistics, for example. When figured out what the real problems are, the manager can make choices to replace or change something. The PDCA (Plan Do Check Act) principle is being used here. If there is no trend break after replacement or change, then you need to find out why that is.
