Due to intense global competition, manufacturing companies need to improve and optimize
productivity, increase production and flexibility, and gain competitive advantages. Companies
have begun to look for new approaches and strategies in the field of production management. This
includes tools like Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) and Total Productive Maintenance
(TPM), which aim to manage machines and equipment, reduce waste and lead time, and ensure
and enhance competitiveness. The main objective of this study is to explore the connection and
the context of the use of industrial engineering tools, namely SMED and TPM, and to monitor
and evaluate Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) in industrial companies in the Czech
Republic. A comprehensive questionnaire survey of 200 companies and a detailed evaluation of
the operational performance of 92 companies were carried out from the third quarter of 2019 to
the third quarter of 2020. It was found out that 20.5% of companies implemented SMED, 26.5%
of companies implemented TPM, and 54.0% of companies did not monitor and evaluate OEE.
The research confirms the theoretical link between SMED and OEE and between OEE and
TPM. The statistical significance of the use of SMED and TPM separately was not demonstrated.
However, the mutual interaction of using TPM and SMED on the OEE level was proved.
