RD7 - Paint Shop Throughput: A Quick Changeover Approach
Robb Power, PPG Automotive Refinish; Brett BiaLowas, PPG Automotive Refinish
Quick Changeover, sometimes referred to as Setup Reduction, is a systematic approach to eliminate or reduce non-value added activities and time in the setup and/or teardown of any processes within production, allowing companies to more quickly and efficiently change from one product to another. Quick Changeover is a critical component of Lean Manufacturing and is a foundation for gaining critical capacity to meet customer demand and grow operations. This seminar will focus on applying quick changeover techniques and principles to the refinish area within collision, more specifically, to optimize booth cycles for any shop faced with needing to gain capacity and throughput while being held back by the current cycle time of their booths. While this seminar will focus on the refinish area, these principles can also be applied to other areas within collision where better transition and utilization of equipment and assets is involved. Participants will:
- Understand the principles and techniques of quick changeover as applied to spray booth optimization.
- Learn techniques for evaluating the effectiveness of their refinish operation as well as learning to see opportunities for booth cycle time reduction.
- Be introduced to the concept of flow and resource planning in relation to gaining throughput and capacity in the refinish operation of collision repair.
- Learn simple methods to standardize processes and enable continual improvement.
