The Importance of Balancing Speed and Quality in Line Changeovers

Line changeovers, or line clearances, are the process of verifying that all line changeover activities have been completed and that the line is ready to resume production. The challenge lies in balancing the need for speed to minimize downtime, with the need for quality to ensure that the line is ready to produce at optimal efficiency.

Speed vs Quality: The Trade-off

Speed and quality often seem to be at odds in the line changeover process. Rushing through a changeover can lead to mistakes, while taking too much time can result in costly downtime. The key is to find the right balance that allows for both speed and quality.
