If you are in the business of manufacturing carpets, productivity, performance and quality are all things you would constantly be considering and want to maximise.

A reminder about OEE

In manufacturing, OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) measures how well a business’s facilities, time and material are utilised compared to their full potential.

It is considered best practice in carpet manufacturing to measure OEE, which helps you to gain essential insights on how to improve your manufacturing processes.

The six main causes of productivity loss in carpet manufacturing are:

  1. Equipment failure
  2. Setup and adjustments
  3. Idling and minor stops
  4. Reduced speed
  5. Process defects
  6. Reduced yield

How can I improve our OEE?
