Key metrics in effectively managing a business are operations availability, performance and quality. While each are monitored and measured independently, now many companies take a different view of their processes, by measuring them collectively, using an Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) digital platform?

This webinar will explain why companies should be paying more attention to OEE, how it can be introduced and the benefits of monitoring all three metrics to optimise payback to the organisation.
