Support for Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

Automotive manufacturers must operate lean. Lean, efficient manufacturing depends on machinery working at peak efficiency. In addition, properly planning preventive maintenance can help meet and exceed production demands. Maintenance programs, coupled with a CMMS, can also help support Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and compliance.

CMMS Diashboard A CMMS can report out key metrics for automotive manufacturers, including OEE. With eMaint CMMS software, it is possible to track factors that impact OEE, such as downtime. The reporting and dashboard tools within a CMMS help turn data into insights to share with the production and maintenance crews, as well as with management.

The ability to analyze historical costs and trends means improved decision making and more clarity when taking corrective action. CMMS solutions help to support a philosophy of continuous improvement for your organization. Benchmark performance across all locations by tracking and analyzing productivity, work orders per location, response time, and maintenance labor and parts costs. Inventory software for automotive parts can uncover places where spending can be optimized. Insights and improvements can be shared across all locations.

Achieve IATF Compliance

Automotive industry compliance The automotive industry comprises a wide range of companies and activities involved in manufacturing motor vehicles. The International

Automotive Task Force (IATF) regulation 16949 provides certifications, rules, and standards for automotive companies, helping them meet customers’ and stakeholders’ requirements and tenets of quality management.
