OEM companies turn to OEE to meet their clients’ test
Without a doubt,
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s)
supplying discreet production manufacturing equipment as well as complete
production lines are being put under pressure to prove that their equipment
will meet the tough operational requirement for availability, performance
and quality when clients undertake
Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT).
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is rapidly becoming the
benchmark performance measurement to use as it targets key performance
indicators that meet most end users’ needs. However, most control systems
from simple CNC’s to full production line systems are more attuned to
control than to reporting performance OEE measurements. This means that, in
most cases they require a monumental amount of software development by the
This is where products such as Gemba Solutions OEE IMPACT software is
filling the gap, allowing OEM companies to purchase an off-the-shelf program
that is low cost and exceptionally simple to implement. Options include
using either a simple manual entry system or electronically interfacing
directly with the machine or line/s to automatically collect production data
during the tests.
With over 200 reports as standard and a fully customisable reporting tool
that requires no software programming experience, an OEM can provide quick,
professional and easy to understand reports to their clients.
In addition OEE IMPACT can save all the FAT data, allowing the OEM to
provide printed reports to the client during the FAT along with the
flexibility to recall standard reports for every test situation and reactive
reporting. Additionally the FAT raw data and the FAT reports can be stored
to the OEE IMPACT SQL database or exported to virtually any format for
archive purposes if required.
Some OEM clients have been so impressed with OEE IMPACT during the FAT, that
they have requested the OEE IMPACT software is shipped with the equipment so
they can continue to use it when they are in full production – a unique
value added resell for the OEM!
