The study was carried out on a newly assembled commercial production line producing vegetable pastes. The aim of the study was the to assess the organization of work stations, as well as to identify and measure time losses at selected work stations of the production line, which comprise its basic elements. It was on this basis that the productivity of the tested line was assessed. Moreover, effective use of machinery and equipment was determined, using the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) index, based on the measurements of three areas of production line activity: availability, productivity and quality. The indicators demonstrate the total productivity of machines and devices used in processing in the company in question. The results obtained were at a high level, which allows a conclusion that the improvement of production processes in the company is effective in real-life conditions.
