Is there a good O.E.E. (overall equipment effectiveness) score?

Judging whether an O.E.E. score is now good or of a low level depends on many factors, for example which sector as well as which calculation is behind it. After all, the O.E.E. is partly influenced by the sales of products produced on a machine.

If we abstract from the above factors, it is safe to say that the following segments are used globally as O.E.E.

  • 85% and above: Achieving this level places a company in the regions of global excellence (world class manufacturing), a pinnacle achieved by only a handful of manufacturers worldwide.
  • 60% - 85%: Reaching this range represents a commendable target range for manufacturers, an example of a balance between operational efficiency and room for incremental improvements.
  • 40% - 60%: Within this range, a reasonable O.E.E. score emerges, characterising a significant segment of manufacturers who are actively refining their production processes.
  • 40% or lower: Scores in this lower quadrant indicate urgent corrective action. A resolute strategy should be deployed to improve O.E.E. metrics to catalyse optimisation of operational performance.
