Improve overall equipment effectiveness

Improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE)

Workerbase improves the overall equipment effectiveness by better utilizing the available resources. Reducing set-up times and machine downtimes increase value-added processing time. The use of the WORKERBASE solution helps to reduce set-up times and downtimes by leveraging fully-digital step-by-step instructions and notifications on the smartwatch. This will have a positive impact on your overall equipment efficiency. Measuring your Overall equipment effectiveness OEE is a best practise approach in manufacturing. By measuring your overall equipment effectiveness and the respective losses, you will get important insights on how to systematically improve your overall production process. OEE is the single best metric to implement improvement measures and to benchmark progress. WORKERBASE provides a template to calculate the OEE and to identify actions which can help to improve your equipment effectiveness.

Utilize available resources

Reduce setup times

Reduce machine downtimes

Increase value added processing time

Solution example:
Optimizing machine configuration

With the WORKERBASE platform, step-by-step instructions on how to set-up a machine can be shown on the smartwatch. This allows the worker to act efficiently and reduces errors. As set-up times do not add value to the overall process, it is important to reduce set-up times which in turn affects the overall equipment effectiveness.
