I try to figure out in which context OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is most likely to occur? One thing is theory, but where is it actually used in the organization? I have tried to come up with some candidates of more or less broad (management) concepts, and I would appreciate if you can let me know the realism or relevance of OEE with these concepts:
1. TPM = Total Productive Maintenance.
2. Maintenance Management.
3. TQM = Teen Quantitative Measures (lol, just kidding
4. Operations Management.
5. MOM = Manufacturing Operations Management
6. PLM = Product Life-cycle Management
7. MPM = Manufacturing Process Management
8. Six Sigma
11 ... (you are welcome to add)
Lots of these "Management" concepts are so broad, that sometimes I think that I theoretically might as well could put it under Human Resource Management (HRM), though OEE of course is about equipment.
So does it differ depending on which kind of company we talk about and which consultants they have used? Is it fair to state that OEE is mostly related to one or two of them, is there a correct answer? Or perhaps OEE just belong to its self...?
