How can your organization implement OEE to minimize downtime and optimize throughput & overall performance? Join this webinar to find out.

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is not just about your machines – it's a holistic indicator of your plant's health, efficiency and productivity. Leading plant and operations managers live by it, and savvy leaders leverage it as a core metric to measure throughput, downtime, and overall profit

OEE identifies the percentage of planned production time that is truly productive, and broadcasts - loudly and clearly - which improvements to target for optimal performance. As a result, it is often used as a benchmark to compare performance across plants, lines, shifts, or SKUs. However, OEE can also serve as a baseline for tracking waste reduction progress over time. Even the smallest gains can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in cost savings. Join SafetyChain and Vern Campbell, president of Process Management Consulting, for our upcoming webinar on how to implement OEE to maximize performance and cost savings across your organization.

During the presentation, Campbell will discuss:

  • An introduction to OEE, and its impact across production and operations
  • The core benefits of leveraging OEE, including increased savings, minimized waste and improved performance
  • Advice on how to get started with OEE, as well as educational resources to consult moving forward
  • What to expect when implementing OEE, including tips on measuring success

Note: Even if you can’t make it, register anyway, and we’ll send the replay link.
