Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a way to monitor and improve the effectiveness of our manufacturing processes (i.e. machines, manufacturing cells, assembly lines). The purpose of this research is to assess the application of OEE to evaluate the performance of critical machines and to determine to what extent the TPM implementation affects the OEE. The procedure to estimate OEE has also been presented through case study which was carried out in industry manufacturing battery for vehicles. In this experimental study because of excess active material in the pasted grids and the thickness, the boxing will be tight and more active material will also puncture the separator which will result into battery short circuit. Some important corrective measures have mentioned during production and they were forwarded to floor in charge and concern department to verify it and they have noticed it and action was taken under observation. The data collected for a critical machine over a period two month are statistically analyzed to identify the influence of major losses on OEE.
