Therefore, there is a crucial need to adopt Lean Manufacturing approach into the operational processes that can eliminate the waste and Non-Value Added Activities (NVAs). Businesses need to focus on optimizing products/services/process that can add value to their customers and at the same time can promise cost reduction.
The customer is willing to pay only for things that can add value. Everything else is waste and should be reduced, eradicated, simplified or integrated.
It is crucial to calculate the amount of waste and equipment effectiveness of your plant so that the production cycle can speed up with zero downtime, defects, and accidents. And, this is calculated through Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
A part of Lean Manufacturing, OEE is a plant performance parameter that calculates every machine’s availability (uptime), its performance, and its production quality. OEE is measured in percentage, and it gives a complete picture of your machine’s health. It determines the percentage of manufacturing time that is truly productive for your plant. It applies to machines, equipment, and industrial assets.
It is essential to digitize and consolidate all the data required for production to calculate accurate OEE and then work on improving the same. But, the most significant challenge here is the lack of a robust centralized system that extracts data from a diverse landscape of various types of industrial PLCs, sensors, and controllers installed in a plant.
Moreover, to introduce such a centralized system, it requires expert skills to identify the NVA parameters, design a solution to overcome them and monitor the implementation of the same. This is where PBOPlus helps.
PBOPlus helps in optimizing the OEE of your plant. We start by diagnosing your processes to identify the loopholes and NVA parameters. We examine every machine, all parts and equipment. We gain deeper understanding about how your plant processes and machines need to work.
Our aim is to standardize your processes, improve the longevity and effectiveness of your machines, and ensure that your plant runs at full capacity. We help you know the actual plant capacity and more importantly, the areas where cost reduction is possible.
We convert your lagging factors into the leading ones by implementing the latest technology (ERP, Automation, IoT, and Robotics) wherever viable to speed up the process.
PBOPlus believes that OEE improvement is not a one-time process. It requires a continuous course of actions to bring incremental improvements over a regular interval of time to reduce waste, enhance workplace functionality, customer service, and product performance.
The process doesn’t stop here. To attain the maximum OEE, continuous efforts towards eliminating the waste and maximizing the output are inevitable. Therefore, we keep on refining our model 3TSOP with respect to the changing demands of your product customization, innovation, and outcome.
