Why do you include breaks in the OEE? We have a legal right to have a break!

    This approach assumes the machine can not run while you are having your coffee or lunch.
    The reason to include it in the OEE is to make the production team aware of this potential loss.
    Is there really no way to let the machine run 15 or 30 minutes without operator interference? Would it be possible to have an other operator at the machine? Could an other operator watch your machine while you go away?

    Even if you do not need this time now, at least make the potential visible. It doesn’t hurt does it? (if you think it does… please consider careful why!)
