Dashboard-Enabled Data Visualization for Increased Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

Posted by Kari Grosser on Feb 16, 2018 10:20:00 AM


Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) refers to the percentage of planned production time that is truly productive. Most factories have an OEE score of only 60%, which indicates substantial room for improvement.

With visualized data, machine availability can be monitored and machine downtime managed to improve operational efficiency. Advantech's OEE solution optimizes operations by enabling data visualization for convenient real-time machine monitoring and supporting multi-platform data access for remote management and improved efficiency to increase manufacturing productivity. 

Significant OEE Indicators - Availability and Line Balance Rate

Availability Line Balance Rate
  • Measures the duration of planned and unplanned interruptions (caused by equipment failures or material shortages)
  • Optimizing availability reduces machine downtime for increased productivity
  • Indicated how equalized operation time is among workers for a giver process or production line
  • By monitoring the line balance rate, production fluctuations can be minimized for improved efficiency
