The Improvement Engineer is responsible for Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) for the asset(s) that he/she is assigned. OEE is measured at each manufacturing asset and the downtime codes are categorized into: Changeover, Breakdown, Adjustment & Unable to Run. The objective is to minimize these four downtime categories to maximize the OEE on the asset(s). The Improvement Engineer must be able to have strong data collection and data management skills to ensure the top issues can be identified.
Changeovers can be minimized with an effective understanding and implementation of visual management, center-lining, and SMED. Asset performance (Breakdown and Adjustment) can be improved through operator training, autonomous and preventative maintenance, and troubleshooting (RCA/ PCS) and center-lining. Unable to Run (when an asset is scheduled to run but cannot) is affected by a breakdown in factory processes, these can be minimized by good process mapping skills and implementation of modified processes.
The Improvement Engineer must be able to identify and quantify OEE opportunities, calculate the return on Investment (ROI) based on the cost of the solution vs the benefit, lead and manage the change into implementation and finally evaluate the benefit to prove it is generating what was intended.
Everything that affects the OEE of an asset falls under the responsibility of the Improvement Engineer.
