What is it about?
The aim of this paper is to uncover the significance of generally ignored quick changeovers (set-ups) in complex, make-to-order, die casting foundry environments, and it discusses various bottlenecks in the way of acquiring shorter set-ups.
Why is it important?
Single minute exchange of die, define-measure- analyse-improve-control and design for changeover rules are some of the methodologies being used to recommend suitable improvements for various activities of changeovers. FMEA has already been implemented fruitfully for system, design and service sector management, but it is hard to find its application in the field of set-ups or changeover activities, which are acting as necessary evil for almost every product, process and service industry.
