The quest for improving productivity in the current global competitive environment has led to a need for rigorously defined performance-measurement systems for manufacturing processes. In this paper, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is described as one such performance-measurement tool that measures different types of production losses and indicates areas of process improvement (Availability, Performance and Quality). Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is a well-accepted measure of performance in industry. This study investigates the analysis of machine failure, imbalanced posts and non-conforming products and was carried out over a period of 4 months. In fact, we have balanced the assembly line, increased the availability of the bottleneck by using the AMDEC-equipment tool, and proposed action plans to reduce the defect ratio.These improvements enabled us to increase the production by 29 wire/shift, increase the time of production of the bottleneck to 7.83h/week, reduce the defect ratio and standardize the processes.Finally, and thanks to the established improvement, we have increased the efficiency of our new line by 37.2 giving it thus an efficiency of about 76.2 exceeding the 63 fixed by the company. © IEOM Society International.
