Central to this OEE initiative is a unique programme comprising OEE champion training, OEE assessment, identification of areas for improvement, as well as OEE technologies adoption and nurturing a culture of improvement. The initiative advances expertise through systematic training of the local manufacturing workforce in application of knowledge and technology to raise competency and productivity on the manufacturing shop-floor.

OEE and Benefits

The OEE measures how well a manufacturing unit performs in three key categories: Availability, Performance and Quality (see Annex 2). Singapore, Makino Asia, Micro-Mechanics and Mitsuboshi Overseas HQ have signed up as members of the OEE initiative. They represent different industry sectors from precision engineering, aerospace to equipment manufacturing. These members are gearing to improve the overall productivity and utilisation of their manufacturing assets through the OOE initiative.

CKE Manufacturing, which provides precision machining services for the local and regional industries, aspires to benefit from higher machine yields and cutting tool utilisation to boost productivity of its machining equipment. In many manufacturing industries, finding a key to improve productivity is a pressing need...Singapore’s manufacturing sector and catalysing new growth industries.

OEE Integrated Training Programme

In the programme, the OEE champions receive training on OEE concepts, principles and methodology, OEE analysis and tools. They will apply the OEE knowledge through instructor facilitation to develop OEE assessment with their respective company teams.

The OEE assessment involves company-specific data collection with regard to availability, performance and quality indicators of individual selected manufacturing work units. Through instructor facilitation, the OEE champions lead the company teams to drill down to issues, analyse root causes, identify scope for improvement and identify ways for improvement using advanced manufacturing technologies.

The results of the OEE assessment are presented to company management for implementation. Implementation of OEE projects involve technology acquisition, development of suitable solutions, monitoring of enhanced system and validation of performance.
