Set-Up Reduction Checklist

The checklist walks the team through ten important questions that must be answered to complete a set-up reduction effort.

Important Reminders:

  • Set-Up Time is the total time from last good piece or part to first good piece or part of the new product.
  • Internal Set-Up Time is the time when the equipment is down because of set-up activities.
  • External Set-Up Time is the time when set-up activities occur while the equipment is making good product.
