If manufacturers know more about the overall effectiveness of the equipment they use to make their products, they can become leaner and drive down costs.

The key to that knowledge about overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) lies with asset intelligence technology.

Fast gaining support for its power and affordability, the technology is enabling manufacturing industry executives to see reductions in down time, improved throughput and better quality output says Neil Hawthorne, consulting manager with Mainpac.

Asset management intelligence is the subject of Mr. Hawthorne’s presentation at the forthcoming Mainstream conference on maintenance and reliability to be held in Sydney (May 9-11) and Auckland (August 22-24)

Mainstream focuses on the strategic areas of maintenance and reliability, especially aligning and integrating maintenance with the business.

Mr. Hawthorne says asset intelligence technology consolidates data from multiple sources to measure the performance of equipment

His presentation will address OEE, how maintenance and production should co-ordinate and combine and the integration of business applications and process management systems.
