Complete with color pictures from real quick changeover implementations, The Quick Changeover Playbook provides detailed step-by-step guidelines on how to reduce setup times as well as improve flexibility, product quality, and visual control while reducing lead times and costs.

This new book in The LEAN Playbook Series is your guide to effective setup-reduction projects. It is ideal for Lean practitioners and facilitators seeking a training tool and a guideline that can be used in the work area while improvements are being made.

Like a football coach, you can use this playbook for quick reference to convey what’s needed to facilitate quick changeovers. If for some reason you forget a "play" during the implementation, you can easily reference the playbook. You can follow page by page, or you can go directly to certain topics and use it to help you implement that particular "play."

In addition to color pictures from quick changeover implementations, a combination of short paragraphs and bulleted descriptions walk you through how to effectively reduce setup times on equipment. Wasting little time on high-level theory, the book includes an introductory section dedicated to the 8 Wastes and Lean metrics to provide you with the foundation required to fully benefit from this playbook.

The book covers the key concepts you must understand to reduce setup times, including the four steps of a setup, data collection, internal and external work, one-turn methods, intermediate tooling, and standard work.
