CMMS, OEE and Energy Monitoring – ‘Production Effectiveness and Energy Efficiency’
This latest whitepaper looks at modern production effectiveness and examines why energy efficiency is a critical element in the compound measure of profitability.
The Concept of OEE – ‘The concept and calculation of overall equipment effectiveness’
This whitepaper explains OEE within the context of Lean Manufacturing and shows how to calculate the OEE score accurately. The paper also explains the benefits of moving from a spreadsheet monitoring system to an automated OEE management system.
Benefits of OEE Systems – ‘Making every second count in today’s production environment’
Examining the case for replacing OEE spreadsheets with an automated system, this whitepaper explores five key features and benefits of implementing an OEE system over MES and ERP systems – and calculates the typical ROI.
The Business Case for OEE systems – ‘Operational and financial return on investment of OEE Systems’
The Business Case for OEE Systems outlines the operational and financial return on investment expected when implementing an OEE System to measure, analyse and improve operations.

Implementing OEE Systems – ‘Best Practices for Continuous Improvement Programmes’
This whitepaper is intended for organisations that are considering the implementation of an OEE System. It explains some best practices for approaching an OEE system implementation and recommends ways to overcome potential objections and organisational resistance to such a project including an ‘OEE Amnesty’ and the level of improvement teams should expect in a 12 month period.
OEE and Energy Saving – ‘Reduce your carbon footprint with Overall Equipment Effectiveness’
Increasing your OEE score not only means enhanced production capacity, but greater energy efficiency too, resulting in visible benefits to the bottom-line. This whitepaper examines the major contributors to wasted energy and how OEE Systems can provide the platform for greater efficiency.
CMMS Benefits Whitepaper – ‘Benefits of implementing a CMMS’
This paper explores the real benefits a CMMS can bring to an organisation and summarises a range of considerations prior to choosing and implementing a CMMS system for your maintenance operation including the pros and cons of paper-based methods and ERP solutions.
The future of CMMS Whitepaper – ‘the road ahead for CMMS’
