Overall Equipment Effectiveness

Overall Equipment Effectiveness

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a well-known indicator of performance that combines three key production parameters – availability, performance, and quality – into one measurement. Based on the results of an OEE calculation, companies can understand objectively how well they’re performing, identify and eliminate their constraints, look for areas of improvement, identify targets and align those improvements with the overall business plan.

InfoBatch is well suited for tracking OEE performance. InfoBatch acquires and assimilates data from a variety of data sources such as manufacturing databases, process historians and lab systems.

OEE reports can be generated on-demand through an intuitive web browser interface, or generated automatically by InfoBatch AutoGen®. “Virtual campaigns” enable users to evaluate OEE performance on an ad hoc basis, for example over specified time periods or product runs.


What does InfoBatch report?
InfoBatch calculates the three OEE metrics – availability, performance and quality:




  • Planned production time vs. actual equipment operating time




  • Actual product rate vs. potential product rate




  • Sellable output vs. total output produced


OEE Reporting enables manufacturers to routinely evaluate OEE metrics with a simple point-and-click tool, eliminating tedious manual analysis. The utilization of this report allows organizations to identify process areas in need of improvement and fulfill the requirements of a lean manufacturing initiative.

OEE Reporting Benefits


  • Allow instant visibility to hourly production rates and shift performance
  • Summarize data of downtime events, equipment performance, and product output
  • Identify bottleneck operations within the process
  • Improve operator awareness of equipment efficiency and performance
  • Establish a benchmark which can be compared to other facilities
  • Compare the amount of sellable product produced to the amount of sellable product that could have been produced in an optimal setting
