Today’s business environment and intense com-petition drives organizations to find improved and more efficient ways to develop their production. For many manufacturers one of the key challenges is to find the bottle necks of the current production line. Overall Equipment Efficiency measurement can be used to find these, but the available solutions are usually expensive and specialized equipment. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how hobbyist level electronics and very cost-effective solutions can successfully be used to measure Overall Equipment Efficiency. Such a system was developed and tested in a factory environment.
