The paper presents the method for solving the problem in production by using "7 steps" of World Class Manufacturing Methodology (WCM). For each company with serial production, it is important to know what to "attack to achieve goals and to increase the OEE". The goal of each company is to reduce financial losses but it is important to how to efficiently achieve that. In this case one of chronic problems in lacquering line goes to loss due to the splitting of sanding paper in the share of 27% of process loss, or 7% of all losses for that line. The way to solve this problem was by using "7 steps methodology". Indicator for solving the problem was % of influence on Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). A more detailed analysis shows that there are four possible causes of this problem. Type and quality of paper end connection had the biggest impact. The problem was solved by changing quality of paper and its connection. One very "easy" solution for unnoticed loss caused very big saving for the company.
