Requirements
  • If you are a manufacturing professional, just be aware of the various losses affect the equipment utilization. One of the significant loss would be changeover or setting time loss in equipment. Before starting this course, just be aware of the changeover or setting time loss in your critical equipment. This awareness will help you to understand the gap in current method of changeover process .Also you can plan the quick changeover technique in your organization .
Description

This course is all about improving your equipment or plant utilisation by applying Quick changeover (QCO) technique.This QCO can be applied wherever equipment is idle due to setting or changeover from one model to another.

This course is structured with a basic understanding of changeover time definition and its relevance in different manufacturing processes, outlining the impact of high changeover time on customer's expectation, Business profitability and to the operations team.Also, the course is structured to give fundamental differences between the traditional and QCO methodology of settings and step by step process of QCO are explained with simple examples.

Also, practical insights in each step of QCO are given so that the student can apply the technique easily in his work environment
