## Measuring batches that run beyond the shift-limit

Q: When a batch is running at the moment when a new shift-crew comes in, we do not know how much volume was produced yet in that batch. How do we determine an accurate OEE now?

## OEE in long-run milling process

Q: We are tool & die maker for  the automotive industry. Overall each die will take 20 to 35 days (based on size) to complete. Depending on the shape (contour) of the die, the process is done manually or auto mode. The mode depend on our CAD/CAM capability to do the programming.

How do we calculate OEE in this situation?

## OEE in renewable energy industry

Q: Is the OEE used in the hydro electric industry (renewable industry: Wind, Hydro, Solar, Biogaz, etc.) or only in manufacturing industry?

## Availability Definitions (1)

Q: What are the time effects of the situations below to the availability and OEE calculation?

1. Excise tax checking time (60 per shipment)
2. Machine cleaning time for the quality of product. (10 min every hr.)
3. External factory Electrical failure time. (uncontrollable)

## We have no information about maximum speed…

Q: Our textile printing machine runs different products (fabric type along with number of printing colors). We don’t have any information regarding maximum speed against each type of product (fabric type, number of colors etc.).

How can I calculate maximum (Theoretical) speed of my machine when no manufacturer data is available?

## OEE – OOE – TEEP explained

Q: What is the difference between the OEE, OOE and TEEP measurements?

## Machines are not always planned to run

Q: We run a 3 shift operation of 120 hrs a week.
Some of our machines are not 100% loaded due to the product mix we have.

How should we calculate the OEE?

## List with expected world class OEE’s

Q: Is there a list that summarizes the expected world class OEE% by industry?
Example: Casting you won’t expect anything better than 70% or manual assembly not better than 90%?

## Minor Stops

Q: What are Minor Stops? How can we identify then?
