Today, when changes are the only thing that is constant, management based on Lean principles has proved to be an excellent tool for attaining high levels of flexibility. Small batches are the major prerequisite for flexibility and readiness of a company for quick response to those changes. But when the process industry is the case, there is an obstacle in achieving small batch production and that is change-over time. This paper presents how it is possible by using Kaizen workshops (also one of the lean tools) to manage shorter change-over time on machines in the processing industry.
