Efforts in Improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of Weaving Machine in Tire Cord Division at Tire Manufacturing Company in Indonesia

Akhmad Fauzi | Gimbal Doloksaribu


Abstract: Weaving is one part of the production department at a manufacturing company in Indonesia that operates in the process of tire cord making, which cannot evade from problems relating to the machine effectiveness caused by the Six Big Losses. Therefore, effective and efficient measures are needed in machine maintenance to overcome and prevent the mentioned problems. The aim of this research is to investigate what the value of the effectiveness of the weaving machine is, to conduct statistical analyses to determine the most dominating factors affecting the inefficiency, and to obtain solutions for improvement based on Total Productive Maintenance (TPM). This research used the measuring method Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), the analysis of the calculation of the Six Big Losses, and the Cause and Effect diagram to find existing problems and to offer suggestions to fix the problems. The results of this research show that the average OEE of the weaving machine was 71.7 % with the availability rate of 86.3 %, performance efficiency of 83.6 %, and quality rate of 99.1 %. The most dominating factor influencing the low effectiveness of the Weaving was reduced speed losses, the suggested corrective action is to implement autonomous maintenance in accordance with TPM.
