GE’s Proficy OEE Enables Key Improvements:

39% reduced downtime
2% reduced waste
4% reduced inventory
10% improved production efficiency


The Big Idea

OEE measures the percentage of planned productiontime that is truly productive. Many manufacturing lines are only 60% productive, meaning there are tremendous opportunities for improvement.
Proficy OEE


One of the fastest return-on-investment areas of GE’s Operational Excellence Journey is maximizing the utilization of existing equipment with Proficy OEE.

Drive Operational Excellence with OEE

With Proficy OEE, you can gain deeper insight into all the factors that combine to cause productivity losses. You can also act on critical process parameters related to throughput and quality. It helps improve production capacity, reduce running costs, and offset capital expenditures for new equipment.

Proficy OEE breaks the performance of a manufacturing unit into three separate and measurable components:

It's easy to implement. Proven to deliver. And scalable to meet your continuous improvement initiatives.

  • Availability
  • Performance
  • Quality

Each component points to an aspect of the process that can be targeted for improvement. You can apply OEE to any individual Work Center, or roll it up to Department or Plant levels enabling you to define this key performance indicator as a baseline for performance management across multiple facilities on a global, enterprise-wide scale. Proficy OEE also allows you to drill down for very specific analysis such as a particular part number, shift, or any of several other parameters. So you can act on improvement areas.

The result: Optimized efficiency and production.
