During the development of Lean Production the optimisation and minimisation of setup times became an important tool to recognise flowing processes with high variance.
In today´s industrialised life the goal of „zero setup time” is an important component in achieving a continuous improvement process. Short setup times are preconditions for frequent product changes and enable a flexible organisation with a production oriented to the customers` requirements. This eliminates many types of waste, such as overproduction and inventory. The setup time optimisation is the main factor in one-piece-flow-, just-in-time- and just-in-sequence-production.
