Acumence launches OEE survey for can making

Acumence has released a survey on how important Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is to the can manufacturing process.

OEE, or Overall Equipment Effectiveness, is critical in the can manufacturing process because the speed at which cans are produced makes every second of uptime important. OEE helps verify the effectiveness of the changes being made to optimise production.

OEE, the gold standard for measuring productivity, is the percentage of manufacturing time that is truly productive. This number can grade a machine, line, product, shift, plant, or company.  OEE helps identify where problems are located, so action can be taken to improve production.  It does not identify the exact problem.

In general, OEE is a simple metric that alone can be used as a benchmarking tool for comparing similar machines and lines. For it to be helpful for continuous improvement, OEE needs to be supported by much more related information that is all sewn together to allow exploration properly and promote process understanding.

The company would like to hear from can makers on:

  • What is your OEE calculation?
  • How do you use your OEE numbers?
  • What works about your OEE?
  • What challenges do you face with your OEE?
  • Would you like to be part of our OEE Committee and attend a panel discussion?
