is no standard out there on how to calculate it, no industry or governing body, like an ISO standard,” he said. “Just generally accepted practices and principles.” He described interacting with customers who want to change the OEE method, for example not tracking downtime because they did not have planned downtime and no mechanism for recording it.


New Automation Versus Trusted Data


“Fifteen years ago I learned about OEE and realized that this is a very useful tool, combining all of the key factors into a single number,” said Tim Kilboy, president of Capstone Met- rics (Jackson, TN), a provider of OEE calculation software. Leaving captur- ing the data to others, the company’s OEE Management Software imports it either manually or as fi les, such as text or Excel formatted data that can be gathered either from machines or from MES or ERP systems.


“Automated data has obvious ben-


efi ts, however manually entered data is worth the effort. Some have backed away from collecting electronic data,” he said. Kilboy went on to say that “there needs to be a human interac- tion to explain why something goes down. Simply recording may not be good enough. Human data collection is a small expense compared to the benefi t of knowing the data is correct and valid,” he said. “It comes down to the credibility of the data.” When a manager or executive sees results they do not like, a fi rst instinct is to ques- tion the data. That is where human data input contributes to the credibility itself, he believes. From his perspective, about 80% of most manufacturers he works with— automotive and general manufactur- ing—use OEE and TEEP calculations “to some level.” As valuable as the statistic


is, using it by itself may not be where the value lies. “You need more detail by doing a deep dive into the contributing factors and then understand what needs to be done,” he said. That is what Capstone Metrics’ OEE Management Software provides
