Abstract

In manufacturing, some organizations produce more than one product. In this case, a product changeover is required to clean machinery, prep machinery, and load in raw materials for the new product. This changeover must be completely as quickly and efficiently as possible. These changeovers can be tricky with enough volume of material or with large processing equipment. Using 5S to organize areas and using single-minute exchange of die to streamline activities can make this changeover process as efficient as possible.
