Overall Equipment Effectiveness and Overall Line Efficiency Measurement using Fuzzy Inference Systems

Hasan Moradizadeh, Rene V. Mayorga

Abstract

Increasingly, Intelligent Systems (IS) techniques are being used to solve both complex problems and industrial problems with uncertainty. They also can implement the operator’s knowledge (experience) into the system. This Paper aims to improve and compute the well-known manufacturing metrics: the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), and Overall Line Efficiency (OLE), using IS techniques. The proposed methodologies to improve the OEE and OLE weakness are based on Fuzzy Inference Systems. These techniques result in an effective way to measure OEE and OLE considering different weight of losses and also the difference in machine’s weight factors. Moreover, they allow the operator’s knowledge to be taken into account in the measurement using uncertain input and output with implementation of linguistic terms.
