Measuring overall equipment effectiveness can be rather difficult. Particularly to capture all chronic losses, those losses that occur frequently, often on a daily basis, and often with a rather quick and easy fix without involvement of other support functions. Sporadic losses, on the other hand, such as breakdowns, lack of material or manpower is quite easily logged as it gets noticed. This issue is clearly a bigger one when discussing manual or semi-automatic OEE measurement systems. As a complement to this and as a way of visualizing effects of chronic versus sporadic losses a tool has been developed and tested in a case study in an industrial setting.
