About this title


Written primarily for those responsible for the reliability of equipment and the production operation, this innovative book centers on developing and measuring true Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). The author demonstrates that true OEE correlates with factory output, provides a methodology to link OEE with net profits that can be used by reliability managers to build solid business cases for improvement projects, and draws on his own experience by presenting successful improvement applications in every chapter. Additionally, it will also help practitioners better understand Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and develop an effective foundation to support Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM).

  • Develops a minimum set of definitions, a practice application, including three methods of computation, and reconciliation of OEE and various losses.
  • Provides the platform and reasons for maintenance and production to work synergistically.
  • Helps to identify the “hidden factory” that exists within the current system in order to begin leveraging its' potential into real bottom line results.
  • Integrates the famous “Theory of Constraints” aspects into an easy to understand shutdown strategy example.
  • Contains many practical examples throughout to illustrate techniques and methods in a way everyone can easily understand.

In his 29 years with Kodak, he held various positions including ESTAR Machine Engineer, and Engineering and Maintenance Department Manager in Base Making, Sensitizing and Finishing departments.

While at Kodak Bob was instrumental in the implementation of key shutdown improvement strategies providing 9 additional production days, and implementing predictive maintenance systems and reliability projects culminating in a 41% reduction in equipment downtime per million linear feet for one of Kodak's largest sensitizing machines. Additionally, he was a member of Kodak's Worldwide Melt/Coat Managers Team for seven years and the Worldwide Health Imaging Finishing Managers Team for more than a year. He served on his plant's reliability team and was responsible for reliability benchmarking.

As a speaker at the SMRP 1998 conference and at the 1999 MainTech South conference, he presented the OEE article.

Currently he is the Owner and sole proprietor of R.C. Hansen Consulting, LLC. It specializes in identifying and implementing manufacturing productivity improvements for factories seeking to improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness.
