Damian Grow has facilitated over 200 Lean / Six Sigma based improvement projects to a variety of companies and industries. Often, in his experience, when teams learn the concept of Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE), they are both excited at the prospect of implementing the tool, and disappointed that their machinery has little or no downloadable data in which to make the calculations and track performance.
Solutions often range from expensive re-programming / modification, through to paper based recording, or simply recording whatever elements can be salvaged from existing timesheet records; generally also being paper based systems. Having a choice of major expenditure or intentionally implementing double handling is not in the spirit of ‘Lean Business Systems’.
