Whitepaper Series "Industry 4.0:" Step 5
Focus On Optimization:
Key Figures and How to Work With Them

What is behind production data? How must it be used to increase the efficiency of production in the long term? What approaches are possible?

In this whitepaper, you will find out which key figures exist, how they are composed, and what they mean for your production.

At a Glance

Transparency about collected production data as well as various evaluations are half the battle on the way to digital, efficient production. One thing is certain: Collecting production data alone will not improve production efficiency. It is necessary to derive meaningful production key figures, such as OEE, NEE and TEEP, which must be analyzed and correctly interpreted in order to derive optimization measures.

But what do these key figures actually mean? How are they composed and, more importantly, how can you use these key figures to increase the efficiency of your production? In our whitepaper, we answer these questions, explain the generally accepted method of lean production and present other essential factors for optimizing the efficiency of your production.
