Randy Blaylock, VP of Sales for eFlex Systems, recently discussed how SAAS (software as a service) for Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) implementation is the key to unlocking immediate ROI in a recent article published in Automation.com.
The SaaS OEE is positioning itself as a game-changer by inviting ALL manufacturers to utilize these most needed metrics. The capital required for old-fashioned OEE software implementation is a thing of the past. Manufacturers are constantly challenged to increase productivity, improve quality, and cut costs to successfully compete. Manufacturing technology, business intelligence, and plant-wide visibility ensures manufacturers overcome these pressures with real-time critical information to appropriate personnel with a single version of the truth. There is universal agreement that OEE remains a powerful tool for manufacturing organizations interested in taking control of improvements toward manufacturing excellence.
Streamlining the collection of key performance indicators from shop floor equipment and operators can now be interlocked to machine controls to ensure events are properly classified. Until very recently and without a pay-as-you-go SaaS payment model, small and mid-sized manufacturers could not achieve a rapid ROI (return on investment) using OEE solutions for industrial hardware and software installations.
Even the smallest manufacturers with a dozen machines monitored can cost-justify a monthly paid SaaS OEE lean affordable option. Improvement projects to maximize ROI is central to all lean manufacturing and industrial projects. If staffing is significantly different on different shifts, then the OEE can be used to examine the results for a single shift (all the parameters would need to be allocated appropriately among the various shifts) and then accumulate the total savings for the two different sales scenarios.
