Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a hierarchy of metrics developed in the 1960s to evaluate how effectively a manufacturing operation is utilized. It is best used to identify scope for process performance improvement, and how to get the improvement. For example, if the cycle time is reduced the OEE will increase i.e. more product is produced for less resource. Another example is if one enterprise serves a high volume market with low variety and another enterprise serves a low volume market with high variety. In the high variety market there will be More changeovers (set-ups) which will reduce OEE. Downtimes can be configured to be considered productive for OEE purposes under Manage → Metrics → Metric Definitions in the Setup Times section.
