Product description


Changeovers in 3 minutes or less! That is the result of the process described in this book. Picking up where Dr. Shingo's "Single Minute Exchange of Die" left off, it streamlines the process even further to reduce changeover time and cut staffing requirements in half simultaneously! The book describes how to achieve quick changeover in virtually any type of production environment with: A succinct 8-step process for setup improvement; and, 9 basic principles for eliminating changeover waste. The book first outlines the tactical principles for improving the three phases of the changeover procedure. Next you'll learn how to improve changeover on a processing line. All of the ideas presented are based on kaizen improvements that require very little, if any, expenditure. Process razing and the implementation of one-piece flow are also examined as means for eliminating wasteful transportation and searching.
