What is your objective?

Is your OEE too low, and do you want to increase it? Do you want to minimise system downtimes?

Or do you want to extend the maintenance intervals for your system and plan them too?

If you are interested in any of these three points, you should optimise your system and machine functions.

Our practical tips on the next page will show you how to quickly and simply increase your overall equipment effectiveness.



Reduce the length of planned downtimes and avoid unplanned downtimes

Planned downtimes are required for:

  • Format changeovers
  • Cleaning the system
  • Scheduled maintenance

These tasks take up valuable time. Analysing how you deal with these tasks often helps to reduce the associated downtimes.

Preventive maintenance avoids a great number of breakdowns. In the event of a breakdown, the cause must be quickly identified and the problem eliminated as rapidly and simply as possible.
