Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) metrics are tracked in every major manufacturing industry and are particularly popular with process manufacturing organizations. However, its popularity has ebbed and flowed over the years as common hurdles arise, including insufficient data collection or lack of OEE calculation standardization across sites. Fortunately, as the digital transformation of industry advances, innovative solutions are easing these pain points for process manufacturers and opening the door to more flexible methods of quantifying manufacturing losses with OEE on an enterprise level.
In Part 1 of this webinar, Emily Johnston from Seeq, a leading provider of advanced analytics software, will discuss how digital transformation is driving OEE improvements, enabling process manufacturing organizations to prioritize improvement projects, address common production losses and measure the financial impact of improvements.
In Part 2 of this webinar, Ted Masters of FieldComm Group, a global standards organization that creates standards and provides test and registration services to suppliers of process automation instruments, infrastructure and systems, will discuss the extensive collaboration efforts between standards organizations and end user groups that have helped bring about groundbreaking new technologies like Field Device Integration, Process Automation Device Information Model and Ethernet-Advanced Physical Layer that promise to simplify the transition to digitalization in the process automation Industry.
