The useful knowledge contained in the book can make manufacturing more productive without increasing any input resources. This book is written for managers, foundry engineers and frontline production & assembly associates. One of the most effective ways to use this book is to read and discuss it with other employees. Each chapter includes reflections in the form of ‘Things to Remember’ which are helpful to stimulate group discussion among the concerned work force on foundry shop floors. The readers will learn; Definition of Changeovers, Significance of shorter Set-ups, Existing Foundry constraints, Proposed methodology to bring breakthrough in the Set-ups of Die casting machines and dozens of specific ideas to improve die set-ups. The present work also explains; How to perform Time- study to measure actual Set-ups, How to analyse the given Set-up with SMED sheets and further how to pin point the bottleneck activities or sub activities by using combination of Pareto charts and root case analysis, appropriately. It also discusses the impact of good housekeeping (5S), TPM, Poka-yoke and Set-up tool-kit on overall Changeovers. The book validates its findings through a ‘Case study'.
