SET-UP Reduction For achieving quick changeover with AEP Changeover Model Implementation and Activity Motion Waste Analysis. Set-up reduction, an important component of the Just-In-Time system of manufacturing brings together powerful techniques for reducing the time it takes to changeover machinery between production runs. Why Is It So Important To Reduce Set-Up Time? Reducing set-up is vital to your company’s success because lengthy changeover of machinery is inherently expensive. It demands long production runs to justify its cost, which, in turn, leads to excess inventory and the inability to respond quickly to your customer’s needs. As set up times decrease, manufacturing in small lots becomes cost-effective. Smaller lots mean quicker and better response to changing market demands. You produce only what the customer wants, when the customer wants it and with perfect quality. In addition, short set-up will lead to : Shrinking lot size, Shortening lead-times, Increase plant capacity, Support Kanban JIT, Lowering inventory levels, Faster throughput, Meet delivery promptly, Increasing profitability.
