PlantRun can provide highly accurate maintenance KPI’s in real-time for improved maintenance effectiveness or performance.
The manufacturing cost per unit or production cost per unit is often a crucial metric and can vary greatly from one production run to another depending upon the input cost variables. An example would be when extra staffing is used to ensure rapid throughput at times of high demand.
Since it’s original development in Japan in the 1970’s OEE or Overall Equipment Effectiveness has become a widely used metric for measuring manufacturing efficiency. OEE is the main tool of the Total Productive Maintenance improvement program and is used to reduce or eliminate the “Six Big Losses” that limit production.
