This study intended to apply Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) as a performance measurement tool to measure the effectiveness and performance of the machines in the selected manufacturing plant. For the purpose of this study, three machines were selected from the manufacturing plant. Apart from this, the issues and factors affecting the OEE figures were discussed as part of the findings. A case study approach was chosen to conduct the study. This study employed quantitative method to conduct the analysis part of the study where empirical data will be computed to provide typical information for decision making. The primary findings of this study were the possible factors that dominantly affect the equipment effectiveness in the selected manufacturing plant. These findings were used to serve as a guideline to improve the existing problem for the selected machines. Ultimately, it was recommended that the selected manufacturing plant employs OEE as their primary performance measurement tool.
