Abstract

Production is concerned with short throughput times and high schedule reliability in order to on the one hand, fulfill customer demands and on the other hand, increase planning reliability. The continuity of the flow of materials and information are influenced by many factors. One of the most important factors is the reliability of the machines and equipment. The TPM method most commonly employs three indicators: MTTR (Mean Time To Repair), MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) and most typically - OEE. The first two are associated exclusively with technical issues of the examined production line. However, as the basic TPM implementation performance indicator stands OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), which is a global efficiency rate. This indicator represents the percentage of theoretically available effectiveness possessed by a device or production line. The paper discusses some examination results for main subsystems of Cold Rolling Mill.
