Cierpa OEE: Maximizing production

Cierpa OEE: Maximizing production Unnecessary long production times, malfunctions, short stops, unnecessary waste: every production process has spillages. But what are they and how do you eliminate them? Cierpa OEE software maximizes your production process.

Making big steps with OEE software together

Away with waste in your production

Once everyone understands what waste means for the work floor and management, you can start your improvement process. Cierpa OEE bundles manual, digital, or real-time collected data and transforms them into insight. This way, everyone can see where the focus of the improvement process should lie. And you can make big steps together.

  • Flexible measuring

    Our OEE software works with real-time sensor measurements using PLC/OPC or a scorecard (paper-based/digital).

  • Insight into waste and overload

    Get an instant view of waste and overload with minimum effort.

  • A proven tool since 2006
  • For operator and manager
  • Prevents large amounts of waste

testimonial quote

Cierpa OEE offers much more insight than those hard copies packed with data

“Cierpa OEE offers a lot of insight into our savings potential, malfunctions, and downtime. It also provides terrific possibilities for analysis. We used to have hard copies packed with data. But you can't analyze on paper. So we kept those files for five years and then threw them out.

Now, we have all the improvement analyses we need at the push of a button. This makes specific improvements attainable. For example, we have halved the changeover times of some of our lines. That's some serious cost saving!"

testimonial quote

Cierpa OEE is an excellent tool to realize and monitor improvements!

"Where we used to focus on easy and consistent data retrieval, we are now looking for trends. We’re looking for the same malfunctions, production breaks, and quality loss. Can we detect and prevent waste? That’s where we improved with Cierpa OEE."

Produce more with the same resources

Find loss in your manufacturing process. Of course, you can see when a machine has halted, but maybe not when the machine doesn’t run at total capacity. Mission Foods on this topic:

“Before we started with OEE measuring, we had no idea where our loss was located. Now we do.”

Diminishing waste by knowing your loss

Cierpa OEE in short

Why doesn’t a machine or production line run optimally? Cierpa OEE not only shows you where the loss occurs, but also what the underlying reason for that waste is. That knowledge really helps you to improve and produce more efficiently.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cierpa OEE

Answers to common questions about Cierpa OEE.

We have developed a diagram for that. Use this download to take a look. Do you have more questions? Then we’ll help you along.

There’s no clear-cut answer to that. It really depends on your situation, of course.

If you’ve never measured OEE before, we advise you to use paper at first. This way, the operators learn about OEE. Once you’ve transferred the measurements into Cierpa OEE directly, you get an instant overview of your instances of waste.

If you already have experience with OEE, you can choose between digital and real-time. We have customers that use digital measuring on lines with few failures and real-time on lines with many failures. Other customers take a different approach.

Basically, a lot is possible. We like to think with you on the solution that’s best for you.

Take a look at this practical download first

That depends on the measurement method you choose. Starting with paper enables you to get going after day one. The implementation trajectories may take from one to six weeks. Our implementation consultants help you along the way. You can read about what we do during the implementation process: The road to Cierpa OEE implementation.

Cierpa software is available both via the Cloud and as on-premise. With on-premise we mean: the Cierpa software runs on your own server(s) and you take care of management & backups yourself. From the Cloud, Cierpa provides secure servers and management.

With the OEE formula you measure the productivity of machines and production lines. How do you apply the OEE formula exactly and what does the outcome tell you? Read the blog The OEE formula.

Yes, Cierpa OEE is suitable for existing sensors and measurement systems. For common situations such as use of PLCs, ready-made couplings are available. In other situations Cierpa can add a custom-made coupling.

Cierpa Software is easy to use and requires little explanation. A short user training will do.

One of our partners will do this. They can train the operators, managers, and board members. After consulting you, they can deploy a train-the-trainer program to train many operators.

The culture change that is necessary for successful improvement is a different matter. The role of software is small. Our experienced, independent improvement consultants help you start your improvement trajectory and train people to recognize instances of waste and improve with OEE.

We have three packages: lite, professional, and enterprise. Lite is great for companies that just started improving. Professional is suitable for companies that already know about continuous improvement and want to further their improvement process. Enterprise is ideal for companies that want to improve at multiple locations.

Yes, that's possible. The most chosen solution is an own hosted OEE server to which the real-time signals are sent and which is also used as a web server to display the OEE reports.

Yes, although most tablets have trouble switching between a data connection and a local Wi-Fi network. This will sometimes cause the connection to the OEE screens to be lost.

We will always set up a separate database for the OEE system. If desired, a database link can be set up between these two systems, but we prefer to get the data as close to the source as possible. This way we always know for sure that we are working with the correct data.

Dutch, English, German, French, Polish. You can easily add a new language.

We’re glad to help you implement continuous improvement with Cierpa Software. Successful improvement requires a good improvement culture, and that often requires a change in employee behavior. Cierpa Software makes it easy for your people, but change is still a human task. Because we mainly understand computers very well, we’ll connect you with our extensive network of independent improvement consultants. Our consultants have a proven track record in supporting change processes.
