POWER assisted a leading consumer products manufacturer with the optimization of changeover times for lotion, powder, and bandage lines in their facilities in Thailand, Malaysia, and China. At the time our team was contracted, the average changeover time was 30 minutes. The client’s goal was to reach a 10 minute changeover. POWER assisted our client by observing and recording the changeover process for each line, and then providing a final report documenting observations and providing recommendations for improving line efficiency. POWER also led three-day workshops presenting recommended concepts and time optimization procedures to combined staff from the Asia Pacific region. As a result, the client was able to achieve major changeover reduction times for lines in six plants.
