Combining Overall equipment Efficiency (OEE) and productivity measures as drivers for production improvements

Andersson, Carin LU and Bellgran, Monica (2011) Swedish Production Symposium 2011 p.20-29
Abstract
To compete on a globalized market companies need to constantly improve the performance in their manufacturing systems. Production performance measures can be used for different purposes, by practitioners they are commonly used for follow-up and reporting purposes. Two of the most commonly used performance measures are Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) and productivity. Between these two productivity exhibits the far most variety in definition. Even if OEE and productivity are strongly affected by improvement work, they are seldom used to drive the improvement efforts. The purpose of this paper is to present definitions of productivity suitable as improvement drivers, and to discuss the need for a combined set of performance measures to... (More)
