The manufacturing measurement system has become essential to the continuing improvement in shop floor. There is, within the TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) methodology, a measuring tool, an indicator known in the international literature as OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), which assesses the health of manufacturing, can be focused on production lines or in a global context, evaluating the manufacturing as a whole. This metric is based on availability-performance-quality triad. This paper presents a case study of the OEE management system implementation in an auto industry where the differential is the OEE metric management used by shop floor employee.
