Does anyone actually look at their daily equipment availability? Instead of using TEEP that is typically based on calendarized availability, looking at the Daily Equipment Effectiveness Performance of your operation may provide some interesting insights.
Working overtime due to material or equipment availability occurs many times. Unfortunately, we find that sometimes these very same machines are idle during the week.
A detailed explanation for calculating DEEP can be found in one of our earlier posts, “OEE, Downtime, and TEEP.” Understanding machine utilization patterns may provide greater insight into the actual versus planned operating pattern of your process.
Just something to invoke some thoughts for your operation and to perhaps identify another opportunity to improve performance.
