In order to obtain an OEE score for each individual production line, Hellebrekers has developed a generic OEE application, which goes above and beyond standard OEE applications. Rather than examining efficiency alone, it also monitors Line Performance Indicators (LPIs), which are linked to, among other things, malfunction reports. The moment the system detects a standstill, the operator is quickly presented with a loss line that must be validated or justified. Because we keep a record of all malfunctions, the system can give an accurate indication of what is going on.
Many sources of wastage that affect OEE cannot be traced with a standard OEE application. Our Hellebrekers OEE software keeps a record of all anomalies detected in (field layer) machines, as well as of the cause of each efficiency loss. Data is collected on how effectively the process is running, how is being product and how much is lost, how the previous production shift performed, what the machine settings are, what malfunctions or stops have occurred, and so on. This provides management with insight into where interventions are required and what needs to be done to safeguard or increase the efficiency of the process. This insight allows for highly detailed cost analysis (cost deployment) and, by reducing costs and increasing output, improve sefficiency.
The added value that Hellebrekers offers its clients is a reliable and carefree implementation process. We excel at building custom OEE solutions, and our application is capable of making customer-specific OEE calculations, among other things. The final OEE system will only be implemented after all data collected in the pilot are validated and the system has been perfectly configured. Once the implementation is complete, we stay in close contact with customers to discuss the progress of the OEE project, define action points and familiarise employees with the OEE system.
