How to prioritise a production order

How to improve the OLE?

The Overall Equipment Effectiveness is the percentage used to measure the productive efficiency of industrial machinery and gives us the key on how to improve productivity.

The digitization of industrial operations is the answer to how to improve the OEE by integrating the employee with management systems (IT) and industrial information technology (OT), thus making them a connected employee.

The planning of Production Orders (PO) takes into account their prioritization, the work route of each one of them, the available resources and the delivery dates, so it allows knowing at all times which PO the employee must execute to comply with with the current planning, as well as the step-by-step operations that must be executed.

This seems obvious, but there is currently a large percentage of industrial companies that, even having this information, do not make it available to their employees, incurring downtime, increased costs, extra consumption of materials, etc…

A software of digitalization of industrial operations allows you to have information on the status of the PO and planned tasks, but it also goes much further. Knowing the incidents and stops produced, knowing where each employee is and what they are doing, and being able to communicate with them, all in real time and from anywhere, are data that can be acquired without difficulty and that facilitate the management of priorities and workloads to production managers.
