Understanding Line Changeovers

line changeover, or line clearance, is the process of verifying that all line changeover activities have been completed and that the line is ready to resume production. The benefits of line clearance include reduced downtime, improved line efficiency, and increased product quality. However, achieving these benefits requires effective visual management techniques.

Visual management techniques provide a clear, concise, and easily understood method of communicating vital information. Here are some techniques that can be implemented with the help of FAT FINGER:
