How do I configure the KPI: Overall Equipment Effectiveness?

From the KPI list page, click on the menu option ‘Configuration’ for Overall Equipment Effectiveness. You will then be taken to the configuration page. Here you need to select appropriate sensors to provide suitable input data for each part of the formula:

OEE = Availability x Performance x Quality

Once this is done, you have enough to click save, upon which your KPI will become active. For information on how to set up targets, read the article How to use targets.

The specifications for each of the required sensors are as follows:

Status (availability): This sensor needs to be supplying data on the current status of your machine. Is it actively running or not? The virtual or physical sensor need to provide the following values: "0" for "OFF", "1" when the machine is operating normally, "2" if the machine is in failure.

Maximum Rate (availability): This sensor needs to supply data indicating the maximum possible rate at that moment. In food machinery for example this will change depending on the product type which the machine is producing at that moment.

Real Rate (performance): This sensor needs to supply data indicating the actual number of products being produced at that moment.

Bad Rate (Quality): This sensor needs to supply data indicating the number of sub-standard products being produced.
