Understanding plant maintenance

plant maintenance

Power plant maintenance is one of the important topics to consider since most advanced countries harness most energy consumed from renewable energy. Power plants are farms or sources where the energy is created before distribution.  Both renewables such as (thermal, wind, solar, hydroelectric energy, biomass) and non-renewable such as fossil fuels have their own proper […]

Understanding overall equipment effectiveness

overall equipment effectiveness OEE

In the industrial world today, organizations perform better than each other because of their level of overall equipment effectiveness. Overall equipment effectiveness is the gold standard for measuring manufacturing productivity by simply putting the percentage of manufacturing time that is truly productive. Today you’ll get to know the definition, use, and how to calculate overall […]
