Quick Change Over - Tool for a successful production

This is a QCO introduction Video

Yesterday we captured a mold change over session using video camera can today we did an analysis with a lean consultant. We observed many opportunities to reduce change over time. I practically realize how 5S is linked with quick change over after observing a mechanic is searching for a proper tool for fixing a mold.

Because of present day competition every single minute is very valuable as it is directly related to cost of production. We are following Single Minute Exchange of Die theory to implement QCO in our production floor.
