MRC’s Setup Reduction consulting services offer a powerful solution for businesses struggling with long setup times, which can result in significant productivity losses and decreased overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
Our Lean experts employ the renowned Shingo Single-Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) philosophy to deliver practical and effective methods for minimizing setup times. With MRC’s help, clients can achieve up to 50% reductions in process changeover time, resulting in a wide range of benefits.
Our Setup Reduction consulting services can increase process capacity by providing more machine time, enabling clients to output more products. Additionally, setup reductions can lead to increased process flexibility and faster delivery times. Smaller production runs (batches) and more frequent setups facilitate improved defect detection, leading to higher product quality.
By engaging MRC’s Lean experts, clients can also enhance employee skillsets and identify quality opportunities, resulting in optimized OEE through Setup Reduction. Chronic process issues can be resolved using Root Cause Analysis (RCA), and standard work can be established to ensure process consistency. With Setup Reduction, companies can achieve greater scheduling flexibility, leading to increased productivity and profitability.
