The expectation: to knock our setup time in half so we can spend less time prepping for production and more time producing parts.
The result: lower prices and faster delivery times for you.
Led by the Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MassMEP), our entire production team evaluated a real-life setup process from beginning to end. We tracked and documented each step, then evaluated and reconfigured the steps, cutting out the waste.
Setup reduction is part of the LEAN system, a model used to continuously improve business processes.
