Even though measuring Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) has become an increasingly widespread industrial management practice. At the same time, alternative indicators are being proposed in literature to deal with evaluating performance on a more global level of the production systems. These indicators reveal a series of possibilities for use in the search for effective use of production capacity.
The case of a food processing company shows us that the use of indicators like Overall Throughput Effectiveness (OTE) and Overall Plant Effectiveness (OPE) could help in diagnosing problems with utilizing capacity efficiently. It also aids in integrating production strategy with other functional strategies, and thus promote more effective management of the global performance of a factory.
