— When managing with equipment, an organizationrequires to apply an appropriate decision method in order to unleash hidden losses and identify existing performance also. One of crucial and widespread applied tools of performance measurement in manufacturing industry is Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). However, OEE is still not suitably comparable method, because the weighting of each element in OEE is still equivalent, whereas, their losses are totally different and also interrelate to each other, hence these unconformities possibly mislead a judgment of decision maker. Therefore, this research has an objective to propose a new quantification frameworkby applying Analytic Network Process (ANP) with OEE for improving the weaknesses of original the OEE and other adapted measurement.
