OVERALL EQUIPMENT EFFECTIVENESS (OEE)
OEE Is A Powerful Metric For Driving Performance Across The Mining Mineral & Metals Sector
What is Overall Equipment Effectiveness?
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a metric used to measure the performance of Assets, and originated from the Manufacturing industry. OEE uses a three metric approach to determine how Assets are performing in Availability, Performance and Quality expressed as an OEE number in percent.
When considering OEE in the Mining Minerals & Metals context it’s necessary to apply OEE in a similar, but different technique depending on the assets, area and production equation.
MPPIglobal are the industry leaders in OEE for the Mining Mineral & Metals (MMM) sector, and have developed an OEE model that can be applied across the entire MMM value chain. The solution is built upon our Maximum Sustainable Production Rate (MSPR) with an advanced algorithm balancing calculation supporting our MMM production based model.
How it works
Traditional – Time-Based OEE model
In a Traditional Time-Based OEE models, losses are stated in time, and the OEE metric is useful to determine where to focus improvement for maximum gains. When coupled with Optimum’s Downtime Module, losses can quickly be broken down into specific equipment for Root Cause Analysis and Continuous Improvement.
Advanced – Production Based OEE model
In The Advanced Production Based OEE model, losses are stated in the production units. Like the time-based model, it is useful to determine where to focus improvement. When coupled with Optimum’s Production OEE module, losses can be broken down into equipment by production unit. An example of this is. Pump 207A caused 327oz of Gold loss, or Truck 47 breakdown, caused 470 tonnes lost. The Advanced Production Based OEE Model has further capability, and can be applied as three, four and even five metric to accommodate the complex MMM customers requirements.
