On-line video course “OEE-Management” with certificate available

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a widely known, but surprisingly little used key performance indicator for managing production companies. One of the reasons is that the KPI needs to be explained in detail. For this reason, the two founders of oee.ai, Prof. Dr. Markus Focke and Joern Steinbeck published a comprehensive on-line video course “OEE Management” on the Udemy platform.

Udemy is one of the comprehensive global learning platforms on the Internet. The online video course “OEE-Management” is available there since November 2020. The lecturers are Prof. Dr. Markus Focke and Joern Steinbeck, the two founders of oee.ai. The course has a video-only duration of a little more than 5 hours and is supplemented by exercises, quizzes and downloadable materials. The target group for the course are employees in a managerial role from manufacturing companies, from COO to lean management managers or production supervisors. No prior knowledge of the concept is required, which makes the course suitable for beginners. Experienced operations managers and process optimizers will also learn many tricks and tips in order to be able to use the OEE better for their own organization.

The course is divided into 10 sections:

1. Presentation of learning objectives and the speakers

2. OEE as a representation of true equipment productivity

3. OEE as a tool for identifying losses

4. Ability to record the OEE and the reasons for the losses

5. Industry 4.0 and artificial intelligence to increase OEE

6. Analysis of the OEE and the loss reasons, directed OEE improvement

7. Employee motivation for OEE management

8. Company maturity level and evaluation of OEE improvements

9. Summary and other sources of information

10. Bonustrack oee.ai Manufacturing Analytics

The aim of the course is to impart comprehensive knowledge about the definition of the OEE and the acquisition of the relevant data for the improvement process – and also to shed light on topics such as change management, employee motivation and the possibilities of Industry 4.0 technologies in detail. The sections are relatively independent so that individual modules can also be skipped.
