OEE Visibility

Use Cases

The OEE Visibility tool allows you to visualize key performance indicators (KPIs), including OEE, the components of OEE (Availability, Performance, and Quality), and other models, such as Downtimes and Defects. These KPIs are built from machine-level and system-level data, and are calculated in a consistent manner for all facilities feeding data into the Sight Machine platform. This gives your organization a standardized method for comparing performance and other KPIs across your machines, lines, and facilities.


The OEE Visibility tool is designed to quickly build charts and visualizations of OEE and its components and related KPIs. It can help you identify trends in OEE, compare OEE across machines, shifts, and factory locations, and pareto the top causes of downtimes and defects.
