Abstract This article describes the way of exploiting an andon system to measure key performance indicators (KPIs) of manufacturing plant from the automotive industry. The performance measurement is conducted using four factors in two levels of performance aggregation. The first level constitutes the set of performance factors calculated for separated areas such as overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) to measure operational effectiveness and total effective equipment performance (TEEP) for analysis of capacity utilization. In the second level some global fators are proposed such as overall plant effectiveness (OPE) and total effective plant performance (TEPP) for global investigation of plant performance. Although OEE is well-known factor indicating different types of production losses it doesn’t allow to look globally on the performance of whole production system. Therefore, a method of calculating global performance for whole plant in the form of OPE and TEPP is presented. These factors are investigated based on previous calculated OEE factors for smaller manufacturing areas. An andon system is used as information tool to monitor production losses needed to calculate mentioned KPIs factors.
