This paper proposed a method to evaluate collaboration of criteria such as Performance Rate, Quality Rate, and Availability of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) to players in time sequences. We proposed a method called “Moving Coalition Analysis” (MCA) to observe performance trends of a coalition over time by treating each year or time as a player. In this method, we divide a coalition into several subcoalitions and calculate the characteristic function of all subcoalitions. Then, we examine the collaboration of Performance Rate, Quality Rate, and Availability for each subcoalition using the Shapley value. This method shows the relationship between each player and its contributors and can show trends of an activity in a time sequence even though the value of OEE is constant. This concept is applicable to various sectors of maintenance management and can play a role in considering the balance of combinations of criteria when performing maintenance.
