Machine Performance Monitoring
Machines and Systems for which Performance Monitoring surveys may be required on a routine basis include the following items:
Note that electric motors are not included on the list because fall-off in performance is usually measurable by standard condition monitoring processes such as vibration and thermography. Perhaps the most useful parameter for performance measurement of an induction motor is speed in relation to load. This should always be a constant and variations are measurable with vibration analysis. Therefore, generally speaking, special purpose performance monitoring surveys for electric motors are not required. Though the final decision to performance monitor motors should consider the risk associated with their failure.

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a method to measure three distinct Key Performance Indicators (KPI). The best SCADA software includes this functionality without requiring additional modules or add-ons to be purchased. In top SCADA software all the tools necessary for OEE management are built-in. Here are the three KPI:
Performance: Performance is the percentage of units created on a machine in relation to the expected output. If the specifications of the machine indicate that it can produce 1,000 units per hour, and produces 800, then the machine has an 80% performance KPI rating.
Availability: The percentage of the time the machine is online when it is scheduled to run is its availability. For a machine scheduled to run for ten hours, with three hours of downtime has an availability of 70%.
Quality: A machine's quality indicates the percentage of goods accepted in quality assurance. A machine producing 1,000 units an hour with 200 rejected has a quality KPI of 80% .
