Changeover Reduction



Though traditionally used in manufacturing environments, set-up and changeover reductions are valuable tools that can be used in different settings to decrease overall costs and "bottlenecks".


Set-up or "change-over" is the time required from the completion of the last until the start of the next procedure. This could include room set-ups, getting supplies or materials, getting paperwork or changing over machinery, etc. The point of Changeover Reduction is to improve utilization, increase capacity and increase volume.


Benefits of Rapid Changeover include:

  • Reduction of inventory & supplies
  • Dramatic reduction in flow time
  • Elimination of waste and non value-added operations
  • Improvement of capacity and volume
  • Increase in flexibility
  • Improved cash flow through reduction of inventory, waste, and rapid transfer of information
  • Increase in competitiveness
  • Increase in customer satisfaction
  • Increase in employee satisfaction
