ANALYSIS OF THE OVERALL EQUIPMENT EFFECTIVENESS TO MINIMIZE SIX BIG LOSSES OF COOKIE CAPPER MACHINE-A CASE STUDY IN MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY

Authors: S. Shreelakshmi, Anirban Chatterjee

Abstract: Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a method of measuring the effectiveness of the use of equipment. This method is known as an application of a Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) program. The ability to clearly identify the source of problem and it causal factors is the main advantage of this method since the improvement effort becomes focused. Britannia Industries Pvt. Ltd. is one of the manufacturing companies that produce biscuits. Based on data from the Bourbon line production department, for the period of July- September 2019, the production process of bourbon biscuit often experienced constraints due to the high downtime and losses in the cookie capper machine. This resulted in the use of production process equipment that had not been optimal. It is important to find out the source of the problem and its causal factors before the company makes any improvement effort. This study aims to identify equipment losses and measure the achievement of OEE values in the cookie capper machine. The measurement result shows that the average of the effectiveness of cookie capper machine for the period July- September 2019 of was 69.47% and based on Japan Institute Of Plant Maintenance (JIPM) the value has not reached the standard that is > 85%, however, there is still possibility for improvement. The losses that give the most significant effect on the overall equipment effectiveness of the cookie capper machine is reduce speed that was equal to 26.23%. One way to minimize the losses is by maintaining the actual speed of operation and maintaining wear on each cookie capper machine.
