Design for Changeover (DFC): enabling flexible and highly responsive manufacturing

Abstract

A highly flexible manufacturing capability is central to the paradigm of mass cus-tomization. In turn the role of rapid, high quality changeovers is crucial to this ca-pability, whereby production can be switched with minimal penalty across a full (and expanding) range of product offerings. Many companies will seek better changeovers principally by refining the way that personnel complete assigned tasks. Further improvement opportunity can be sought by amending the design of process equipment. By means of focused design improvement an inherently more flexible manufacturing system can become available, on which simpler, more re-peatable and faster changeovers can routinely take place.
