Key points from the Workshop

This one day workshop is designed to teach you, through doing, so you can expect practical interactive activity as the day unfolds.

We will explore the value of short runs, low production inventory and how it can impact your business with rapid response times. You will learn simple practical methods for analysing your changeovers and setups, then how to identify the various wastes and build trial plans for testing new setups or changeovers.

It is well understood that long changeover times lead to large batches in production and poor time utilisation in many industries.
