Research on Determination of Performance Evaluation of Mobile Manufacturing Units (MMUs) for Surface Mines – An OEE Approach
For the measurement of overall equipment effectiveness, it is necessary to determine the magnitude
of the types of production losses in order to plan activities and allocate resources effectively. The
application of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) in Mobile Manufacturing Units for mining
operations have not been duly adopted. There is the need to do the assessment of maintenance
performance indices like availability and utilisation for improvement in productivity. This paper seeks
to determine the maintenance performance indices like availability and utilisation of Mobile
Manufacturing Units (MMUs) of African Explosives Limited (AEL) operations at Goldfields Ghana
Limited, Damang. It was determined that the availability and utilisation were 93.55% and 30.61%
respectively. The results obtained can contribute to the knowledge about the solution for improvement
in scheduling of mine operations and the efficient monitoring of controllable factors that enhance
maximum availability and utilisation of MMUs.
