Use Total Effective Equipment Performance To Improve Efficiency

Maintenance managers consider total effective equipment performance
Maintenance and engineering managers continually look for ways to improve performance. One way to achieve this is by measuring total effective equipment performance (TEEP) in your facility. TEEP is one of several important performance metrics used in manufacturing to assess productivity. Today, we will define TEEP, explain why it is important, and show how plant managers calculate it. We'll also review two other important performance metrics, including:  Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE)  Overall operations effectiveness (OOE)  TEEP Metrics Comparison TEEP TEEP is a measurement of potential operational performance levels, which can help determine the unused potential within their operations and make...

Electrical and Instrument technician logging data in electrical switch gear room, equipment maintenance logs
Organizations can use equipment maintenance logs to track maintenance activities. These logs allow an organization to track the maintenance completed for each asset and ensure necessary maintenance is performed regularly. These logs also enable organizations to track historical maintenance. This is especially relevant when asset management decisions between repair and replacement need to be made. Without an effective way of tracking maintenance, it will be difficult to make strategic decisions that affect budgeting and the reliability of critical equipment. This article will provide an overview of equipment maintenance logs, their general types, and some important best practices for creating and...
