Abstract

This case study details a Six Sigma changeover downtime reduction project that occurred at a polymer extrusion facility at the request of the plant manager. This facility produced plastic resins used to fabricate internal and external panels, and front and rear bumpers for automotive applications. The company used 5S and single-minute exchange of die to reduce average changeover downtime.
