Q: How to make Continuous Improvement Activities a part of daily work?
This question regularly is being asked when companies join a Lean– or TPM journey.

Q: Sometimes our process is being interrupted; i.e. the oven is stopped at a different moment than planned. At that moment it is not clear whether the product will be OK or not. We will block the product and take samples to determine the quality. This could take a couple of days. Wen everything is OK the product is released, otherwise it is being scrapped. This would have a retrospective effect on the OEE I guess? A correct quality rate -and thus OEE- for the day is no longer possible in this way. What number should I now use?
Q: When a batch is running at the moment when a new shift-crew comes in, we do not know how much volume was produced yet in that batch. How do we measure the batches to determine an accurate OEE now?
