Quick Changeover for Operators, based on Shigeo Shingo's best-selling A Revolution in Manufacturing: The SMED System, teaches frontline employees the techniques and approaches that turn hours of changeover time into minutes, even seconds. The book demonstrates the importance of separating internal from external set-up, as well as tools needed to achieve this goal.
The book begins with the education process that will support training on quick changeover. The learning format in the Shop floor Series makes this powerful technique accessible to the entire workforce. Organized like the other books in the series, Quick Changeover for Operators contains chapter overviews, margin icons that highlight key learning points, drawings and illustrations, and reflection questions throughout the book that help readers apply the concepts.
