Memex has crafted an ROI calculator which incorporates historical continuous improvement values in three scenarios. The resulting projections of productivity gains and profitability potential are amazing.

Job Shop companies tend to believe that no two products are the same and so must be designed and built individually. The reality is that while every product may be unique, most of the individual operations that go into making a product are very similar. These operations depend on the two most expensive assets of any manufacturing company: the equipment located on the shop floor and the people that operate it.

Robert C. Hansen author of Overall Equipment Effectiveness: A Powerful Production/Maintenance tool for increased profits, discusses in great detail the role of OEE in driving profitability. According to John Rattray of Memex Automation (, “We developed the Memex OEE ROI Calculator for clients to find the hidden capacity in a plant. Typically a 10% improvement in OEE can generate a 60+% improvement to EBIT - representing millions of dollars to the bottom line profit.”

The potential is right there on the shop floor. There are many success stories of companies realizing the benefits and reaping the windfall. With Memex’s ROI calculator, companies evaluate the impact of OEE implementation, whether reducing costs or mining capacity, this innovative tool allows for quantifiable improvements. Built by leaders in the industry, the ROI calculator provides both numerical and graphical results, validates the potential of the shop.
