If we have no raw material, or we wait for a technician, we start to clean. What do we register?
You want us to track a maximum of 10 failure categories, but I want to define 85. How else can I ever know what bold is breaking?
Ok, but at least you should take out Preventive Maintenance. I, the operator, do not have any influence on preventive maintenance!
We feel cleaning and maintenance should not be included in OEE. This is necessary to keep the machine running well!
Why do you include breaks in the OEE? We have a legal right to have a break!

Most industries are striving to eliminate waste. I have been using a system different from OEE Toolkit, although I have had knowledge of it from the demo disk. Our company started 6 Sigma and used the OEE information for the basis of it’s initial projects. We found that the information from our system was lacking because of the general areas of loss. The toolkit would allow a accurate definition of losses. I was wondering if other company has used the OEE information for 6 Sigma projects and what were the results?
