What is OEE, why do manufacturers need to measure it, and how is it calculated?

What is OEE? Put simply, OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is a measure of how well a manufacturing operation is running compared to its full potential. It is represented as a percentage of actual useful production / potential production. Perfect productivity or 100% OEE would mean that production time and resources (production assets and material) are […]

How to Calculate ROI of a Machine Monitoring System

At a high level, calculating ROI of any piece of software or hardware is simple: You measure the cost of the goods and services versus the benefits that they provide. Calculating the ROI of Machine monitoring software follows the same rule. You measure the cost of the software versus the benefits.     For machine monitoring […]

Downtime in Manufacturing: Causes, Costs & How to Reduce

Downtime in manufacturing is an unavoidable reality. Value add operational downtime events such as servicing and tool set ups are inevitable components of the manufacturing process. These are inherent costs associated with manufacturing operations. Non-value add downtime events however, represent a distinct challenge. As a manufacturer, your primary objective should be to minimize unplanned downtime as […]

Energy Management Systems – A Complete Guide

An Energy Management System (EMS) is a set of tools that allow manufacturers to monitor, measure, analyse & control the consumption of energy within their machines, processes, or across the entirety of their site. Manufacturers use EMS (sometimes referred to as “BEMS”, or Building Energy Management Systems“) to find ways to reduce their overall energy […]

Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing Policy & Incentives

Manufacturing typically consumes 25-27% of a country’s total energy supplies. Because of this, governments provide energy efficiency incentives to promote adoption of green practices. However, incentive schemes can be difficult to understand. This article will help you understand and navigate energy efficiency policy & incentives for the manufacturing sector.    In this article we will […]

How to Find Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing: Buildings

The physical buildings that house your manufacturing operations can be sources of powerful energy savings. You can find low-hanging fruit for energy efficiency within your infrastructure. These can include the structures and materials that make up your buildings, as well as the processes you follow within them. We’ll explore low-hanging fruit below. The most effective method […]

Understanding Scope 1 and Scope 2 Emissions in Manufacturing

With the advent of the new Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) in the EU, manufacturers must begin reporting on different types of emissions from their operations. In fact, manufacturers will have to report on emissions from their upstream suppliers and downstream users too.   In all, there are 3 types of carbon emissions that manufacturers […]
