What is it about?
In today's world, every customer wants his whistles and bells on the product, so in the near future only those manufacturers that can give quick response to ever changing demands of the market would survive. FIAM (2001) highlights setup reduction policy as a key strategy to make overall production more economical and flexible.
Why is it important?
On the basis of fish-bone analysis, rescheduling and externalisation of setup activities have been performed. Industrial engineering tools like 5-s, poka-yoke and standardisation of procedures further declined the die changeover times positively under the flag of DMAICT methodology. Pareto charts are made to clearly compare and assess the present and proposed setup procedure in terms of time and money.
