PDP Solutions President Louise Dickmeyer Examined Pain Point of Lost Productivity on the Shopfloor


Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2014 -- Louise Dickmeyer, President of People Driven Performance (PDP) Solutions explained in a recent company blog, “OEE has been a well-respected acronym meaning Overall Equipment Effectiveness. If the maximum output capacity for a piece of machinery was optimized to produce 100 units per hour, and only 20 unites were produced, that represented a 20% delta in lost production, lost productivity, lost profits.”

Dickmeyer insisted all this Big Data ignores the plant floor personnel with 20% absenteeism rates, hours gossiping spreading company rumors, instead of working to maximum capacity. Know what a machine can produce optimally does not keep a seasoned experienced welder engaged for another five years, for whom no replacement can be hired.

“Boosting productivity to 90% versus 85% does not prove nearly so efficacious when workers’ compensation claims are increasing two-fold because of poor employee training and heightened employee distractions. When quality finished goods are compromised, when employee safety is jeopardized, when end-user customers complain about missed order dates or inaccurately delivery of product ordered, these are PEOPLE issues, not machinery issues,” commented Dickmeyer.
