Using condition monitoring to track machine health and trigger maintenance actions is a proven best practice. By monitoring machinery health, costly failures are avoided and downtime due to outages is reduced. This results in an improved OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness). Many papers discuss the implementation of condition monitoring to prevent failures and optimize maintenance interventions. However, much less attention is paid to the use of condition monitoring information in order to optimize production capacity of a machine or a plant. This optimization is often translated in production plants by maximizing the production capacity (speed) and minimizing machine’s downtime. As energy consumption is becoming more and more an important decision criterion in modern manufacturing plants, the former optimization needs to take this parameter into account. As such a trade-off has to be made between the gain in capacity and the cost of the additional energy consumed. Therefore, in this paper we will develop a multi-objective optimization of OEE to allow multiple-criteria decision making. More precisely, the goal of this paper is to establish the link between condition monitoring information and production capacity optimization by continuously adjusting production parameters (i.e. production speed) taking into account the machine’s condition and the energy consumption.
