7. Should ‘Preventive Maintenance’ be in- or excluded in the OEE?

Q: Why do you tell us to keep Preventive Maintenance within the OEE? I, the operator, do not have any influence on preventive maintenance!

Arno Koch •    You, the operator, are part of a production team. Together with your maintenance and engineering colleagues you are responsible for the effectiveness of the equipment. If you, the operator, can prove with facts and figures that you are suffering severe losses due to repeated breakdowns and too little (preventive) maintenance, or due to too frequent PM, it serves a mutual interest if you bring this up in your production team meeting!

Here too: If PM reduces your effectiveness: stop it, otherwise: do it!
