"The book becomes a must-have desk reference for maintenance managers, production foremen, reliability engineers, manufacturing executives, and plant leadership teams." -- Bob Baldwin, Certified Maintenance Reliability Professional and Editor of Maintenance Technology Magazine
About the Author
Robert C. Hansen, PE and Certified Maintenance Reliability Professional (CMRP), graduated from the University of Wyoming with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. In 1998, he completed a very successful career with Eastman Kodak Company as an Engineering and Maintenance Department Manager in the Colorado division. 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 member of the Society of Maintenance Reliability (SMRP), Bob has authored two well-received articles for Maintenance Technology Magazine, "Unleashing the Power of OEE", and "General Tool for Acceptance Testing." 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.

There are diverse approaches to OEE that differ mainly in how to classify downtime and calculate ideal rates. Because of this diversity OEE has not been able to deliver on the promise of a generic measure to compare all factories. For some approaches all downtime is considered bad (unscheduled) except time for no demand. This means that changeovers, cleaning, preventive maintenance, etc all end up as negatives. Breaks may or may not be scheduled downtime depending on demand (breaks are a special case of slack time). Some use the maximum rate of a machine even if it would produce 100% bad product. Others like to "leave room" in their OEE so they can show improvement over time as they update procedures and equipment(!). All these approaches make 90%+ OEE impossible to achieve. Hansen's approach is fairly practical (at least as I read it) and 90%+ OEE is achievable by controlling unscheduled downtime, keeping production rates high, and maintaining high quality. I only wish his approach was more clearly explained with more detailed examples that would either confirm or contradict some of the other approaches.
I was not initially interested in the maintenance and reliability chapters but have read them and found them useful as well.
Well done. Will never buy anything from Industrial Press again.
The overall performance of a single piece of equipment, or even an entire factory, will always be governed by the cumulative impact of the three OEE factors: Availability , Performance Rate, and Quality Reject Rate.
Availability X Performance X Quality= OEE
With the knowledge and utilization of the OEE calculation, it is common to realize greater than 40% increase in your bottom line. If you're making a profit now, just think of the opportunity. More importantly, OEE is the glue that sustains other initiatives by enabling all to clearly see where to focus, and the results of those focused efforts. The exciting point is that OEE is a simple method of measuring, you can start utilizing it Today!
My challenge to the industry is to Stop OEE Ignorance, and spread the word about this valuable tool. So I recommend you buy Mr. Hansen's book today.
This indicator, which born on TPM's methodology,is a valuable tool that let from top managers up to bottom line operators, to work with the same system's focus, with the same language, without complicated calculus throughout the areas.
It is easy to read and easy to comprehend. It should be present on every library's manager.
