Surabaya are 18,7%, far below the standard of 85%. The cause of the low OEE value is the low value of the
Performance ratio that is far below the standard 85%. The low performance ratio of Dental Chair Unit tools
in mother and child hospital is caused by the small number of patients who come to the dental clinic, so a
little also uses the Dental Chair Unit. It is because of the competition with general hospital that surround this
