The edinn® M2 system is focused on improving efficiency of any process. To measure production efficiency the standard international ratio OEE is used.
The OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is a percentage that serves to measure the production efficiency of any process (people, machines or combinations of them).
The advantage of the OEE compared to other ratios is that it measures, in one indicator, all fundamental parameters referring to losses in production: availability, speed and quality.
Having an OEE of, for example, 40%, means that of every 100 products that could have been produced, only 40 have been produced.
It is said that it includes all fundamental parameters regarding losses, because out of the analysis of the three ratios that compose the OEE, it is possible to know if that what misses until 100%, is caused by availability (no production during the time that could have been used for production), speed (not produced at the speed that could have been used while producing) or quality (not produced with the quality that could have been used while producing).
Its beginnings are uncertain but it seems to be created by Toyota. Nowadays, it has been converted into an international standard, recognized by the main industries all over the world.
