A helpful software for setting up and preserving approach reliability, total apparatus effectiveness (OEE) has confirmed to be very powerful in lowering unscheduled downtime for firms around the globe. lots in order that OEE is readily changing into a demand for bettering caliber and substantiating ability in prime companies, in addition to a required region of analysis for the ISO/TS 16949. Breaking down the technique from a historic point of view, The OEE Primer: knowing total apparatus Effectiveness, Reliability, and Maintainability explores the general effectiveness of machines and unveils novel equipment that target layout improvement—including chance research, expense of switch of failure (ROCOF) research, failure price finite point research (FEA), and concept of creative challenge fixing (TRIZ). It covers lack of effectiveness, new equipment, electric upkeep concerns, Weibull distribution, dimension innovations, and mechanical and electric reliability. The ebook additionally: Discusses Reliability and Maintainability (R&M), no longer as instruments for use in particular initiatives, really as a self-discipline Covers the applying of OEE as an total development device Assesses present and new apparatus from classical, reliability, and maintainability views features a bonus CD with greater than a hundred pages of appendices and extra assets that includes statistical tables, outlines, case reviews, guidance, and criteria Introducing the classical method of development, this publication presents an realizing of precisely what OEE is and the way it may be top utilized to handle ability matters. Highlighting mechanical and electric possibilities all through, the textual content contains many tables, types, and examples that in actual fact illustrate and improve the cloth awarded.

Sample text

Decide on the proper test level: bogey, test-to-failure, or degradation. b. Clearly define how to measure function and what constitutes failure. c. Develop a statistically valid test plan by applying the fundamentals of experimental design. Establish engineering confidence: Include critical, real-world noise in the test. A Note About the CD Throughout the text, there are references to material appearing in various appendices. All of these appendices are included on the CD supplied in the back of the book.

To be sure, there are steps in any process that create value and those that do not. However, it is very important to recognize that some non-value-added steps (perhaps because of regulations, policies, and current technologies) cannot be eliminated—or at least, they cannot be eliminated immediately. However, they can be minimized. So, the effort of stream value is to eliminate or at least minimize waste in the process that benefits a company’s bottom line. But what is value and waste? Value is an activity that transforms or shapes raw materials or information to meet customer needs.

Should you use the process or individual unit cycle times? ◾⊾ Should you use an average based on possible combinations? ◾⊾ Do shift personalities affect cycle times? ◾⊾ Do cycle times vary with the seasons? ◾⊾ Do manual operations (load or unload time, fatigue factors) have an effect on cycle time? Quantifying Total Defects and the Cost of Quality Total defects are the total number of rejected, reworked, or scrapped parts produced during a period. Of course, the goal is to have zero defects.
