OEE (Overall equipment effectiveness) is a key figure in production and is used as a measure of the value added by a plant. This key figure is an indication of the effective use of the equipment, taking into account its availability, its performance and the quality achieved. OEE can be used to determine and, if necessary, improve the productivity of a plant (machines, production cells, assembly lines, etc.) as well as its losses, profitability and overall effectiveness. The software listed in this SoftGuide section on the subject of OEE provides support in the ongoing measurement of plant productivity, helps to identify the causes of faults and losses, and implements targeted measures for optimization. The software usually offers analyses of MTBF, MTTR and MTBM and provides OEE calculations.
