With the objective of spearheading a machining paradigm able to handle large, complex aluminum parts, the companies have started a strategic cooperation.
New technology is making it possible for these OEMs to re-engineer their processes and operations, better support their customers, and capture increasing aftermarket business.
by Gabriel Smith OEE is a quality systems management tool which enables manufacturers to assess a plant‚Äôs effectiveness. Used wisely, OEE allows a manufacturer to identify major losses, create a road map to find problems, and enhance capacity.
By Martin Grune & Patrick Kraus, infoteam Software AG How can production be optimized, where can improvement opportunities be found, which processes may even indirectly slow down operative business from the background? Overall Equipment Effectiveness (GAE) or Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) has established itself as the key performance indicator for this.
Is SaaS for Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) Implementation the Key to Unlocking Immediate ROI?
By Randy Blaylock, eFlex Systems The old model of OEE implementation was capital intensive and prohibited most small and mid-sized manufacturers from using a well-respected tool. The SaaS OEE is positioning itself as a game-changer by inviting ALL manufacturers to utilize these most needed metrics.
By Salvatore Castro, SAP The common view of OEE is the localized one of an operator trying to control the machine better during the shift. The more modern spin on OEE is trying to improve all operations to run more efficiently with the lowest overall cost back to the business.
The calculator, based on Microsoft Excel, allows users to quickly and simply generate an estimate of potential savings on a production line as a result of OEE improvements.
Safety has always been a critical measure of success for industrial organizations. Companies that are not able to comply with safety regulations and procedures in an effective fashion are putting their people, assets, and market position at risk.
Perhaps every manufacturer's goal is to achieve six-sigma quality at the lowest cost possible. A work-in-progress tracking system works hard to achieve both goals. It ensures quality by providing process verification and early error detection. It lowers the cost of manufacturing by optimizing inventory, and increasing over-all yield.
