Setup Reduction is perhaps the most powerful Lean tool available to us, since it has such a direct, positive effect on available machine time. Decreasing setup time allows us to place our efforts where they belong – converting material to deliver value to their customers. In this program, we present a Roadmap to Setup Reduction, and share real-world success stories from implementing program techniques.
