1. Introduction

Manufacturing is a process that contains tools and labor for producing goods. This could include a series of human activities, which varies from handcraft to technical goods, and today is widely used in industrial production. With the global increasing level of manufacturing, industry starts to pay more attention to competitive advantages by enhancing quality or decreasing the cost and defects. Maintenance becomes a significant factor of achieving this goal. Therefore the total productive maintenance (TPM) is widely spread within the industry. The objective of TPM is to promote the equipment productive forces and efficiency, which at the same time leads to fewer losses, faults and wastes (Arashpour, Enaghani, & Andersson, 2010). For the sake of measuring the effectiveness of TPM, (Jostes & Helms, 1994) provides a way called overall equipment effectiveness(OEE) which can be calculated by three factors – availability, efficiency and quality. OEE is a measurement that can help a factory to judge within a scheduling time whether its performance achieves the expected level of effectiveness due to designed capacity (Zuashkiani, Rahmandad, & Jardine, 2011) . As a part of TPM, OEE is utilized to increase the equipment efficiency and for further purpose make its performance better in a sustaining way (Noon & Gateway, 2000). As described in the work of (Chand & Shirvani, 2000), there are six big losses within OEE that stand for the waste during manufacturing process. Output of a production line can be raised by enhancing the OEE with...
