Here’s the process for calculating OEE:
Availability—this is the total time equipment actually runs divided by the total possible time the equipment could run.
Total run time = 7 hours
Total time in shift = 8 hours = 0.875 x 100 = 87.5%
Performance—this is the total time equipment was in cycle producing divided by the total time scheduled to run.
Total time in cycle = 6.2 hours
Total scheduled runtime = 7 hours = 0.886 x 100 = 88.6%
Quality—this is the ratio of good parts produced divided by the total parts produced.
Good parts produced = 900
Total parts produced = 1000 = 0.90 x 100 = 90.0%
To calculate OEE, take the three percentages and multiply them together, then divide by 10,000.
87.5 x 88.6 x 90.0
10,000 = 69.77%
