Product Families
Kapitel i bok, 2015

This article is about how products with the same or similar design characteristics can be grouped into families, which results in shorter overall setting times when they are produced on the same machine or group of facilities. This can result in improved efficiency since the time spent resetting a production facility results in a significant loss of capacity and also causes management to produce larger batches than may be required to satisfy immediate demand.
