Abstract: In this article two approaches will be presented, which aim to increase reliability and effectiveness of the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) measure through integration of uncertainty using for modelling the fuzzy set theory. The OEE usually is utilised in producing companies in two fields of application, at which the focus is set here. The first field is the so called OEE analysis at manufacturing processes on the shop floor. The second field of application is the corporate function of production planning, where the effective use of right and reliable OEE indicators is most crucial for deriving production plans and eventually corporate success. To give a recommendation how to handle inevitable uncertainties in the applications of the OEE, the fuzzy set theory will be transferred to these applications. Under consideration of an industrial case study the developed approaches are applied and discussed.
