Quick Changeover/Set-Up Reduction
The goal of setup reduction is to reduce and eventually eliminate setups and changeovers as a consideration in production scheduling planning, making processes highly flexible. QCO can be done anytime and is a powerful key element to make Lean work. The workshop will present the steps to achieve this goal. A shop floor workbook is included.

Topics to be covered include how to:
- Evaluate the support and resources to begin
- Form a setup team or work group
- Establish a baseline
- Separate external/internal time
- Reduce set-ups to 10 minutes or less
