Abstract

The role of rapid changeover in today's manufacturing environment is widely acknowledged. Tools to improve changeovers - typically Shingo's 'SMED' methodology - are well known. However, little work has been done to establish whether changeover gains have been sustained in differing industrial environments once initial improvement has been achieved. This paper investigates sustaining changeover improvement, investigating factors that contribute to this outcome.
